The Purdue OWL

The Purdue OWL website can be a wonderful resource; however, there are times when it can be hard to navigate. Sometimes they split up the sections and you never know which section will have the information you are looking for (or if it’s there at all). To combat this the Purdue OWL has set up a Youtube channel where they post “vidcasts” that are similar to our own video VAWLT tutorials. Although we can be an amazing resource and we mostly pull our own information from sites like the Purdue OWL, if your professor is looking for you to use the Purdue OWL and you have a hard time navigating the site, these useful videos might help!
