Microsoft Word comes with reviewing features that allow users to collaborate on Word documents. These features enable an editor to make changes and comments to a paper. These changes and comments can then either be accepted or rejected by the author. In this way, editors never really change a paper, but make suggestions that are embedded in the document. This leaves the paper in tact and gives the author the control over which changes she/he agrees with.

The following are some resources that you can use for help with the reviewing features:
  1. Finding Eden (http://mypage.iu.edu/~ebai/word_reviewing_instructions.html) - students in my summer CALL class in the summer of 2005 developed this tutorial as part of their WebQuest assignment.
  2. Microsoft Audio Tutorial (http://office.microsoft.com/training/training.aspx?AssetID=RC011600131033) - This is available on the Microsoft website. There are some pictures and text as well as an audio component that walk you through the reviewing features.
  3. Dan's Video Tutorial (http://danielcraig.com/call/summer2005/tutorials/word-reviewing-feature.wmv) - This is a video tutorial that I created this summer to help students with the reviewing features. This might be a little slow on dial-up connections.
