Studiosity

Announcement on 25/3/2020:
The maximum number of times you can use Studiosity during this academic year has increased from 8 to 12.  If you have already made 8 submissions this year you are now able to make a further 4.

 

Studiosity offer two additional services which complement the Skills Centre at Sheffield Hallam University. There is an online writing feedback service and a live chat service.  You are able to use these services up to 12 times each academic year.  They are available 24 hours a day/7 days a week/365 days a year.  You access Studiosity via My Hallam (see below for instructions).

 

Online Writing Feedback Service: you can upload an extract of your writing (up to 2500 words) and you will receive feedback outlining ways in which you can develop your academic work.

Connect Live Online Chat Service: you can ask an online question about your academic writing, study or research skills – interacting with a tutor via text chat and an interactive whiteboard.

 

  • You can submit to or connect with the Studiosity service for free up to 12 times each academic year (in 2019/20) – for either writing feedback or online chat (or any combination of the two).
  • The number of submissions/connections available is agreed annually and resets at the end of July each year.
  • Please remember that Studiosity is not a proofreading service – the tutors are able to help you develop your academic writing and study skills, not provide you with the answers.

 

It is useful to plan when to use your submissions/connections and to use the services alongside the Skills Centre – you can:

  • Take the Skills Centre Skills Checkuse the feedback you have received to inform your answers in order to receive a helpful action plan.
  • Participate in a Writing Forumtake your feedback report to discuss alongside your peers, where a Learning Advisor will be on hand to provide expert guidance.
  • Attend a Workshop or Webinar act upon the feedback you have received to develop your writing, research and study skills
  • Book a 30 minute 1 to 1 coaching session with a Learning Advisor (in person, on telephone or via chat) – you can use your Studiosity feedback report to guide your discussion and develop your academic writing & style.
  • Use online e-learning resources from the Skills Centre – our in depth Study Guides and E-learning Programmes will help you become to become an expert writer.
