Late Night Writer Launches Student Writing Coach Building Block for the Blackboard Learn Platform

CANTON, GA--(Marketwire - May 25, 2010) -  Late Night Writer (LNW), the leading online resource for student writers, today announced the launch of a new collaboration tool for the Blackboard Learn™ platform. Student Writing Coach enables Blackboard Learn users worldwide to access Student Writing Coach through a single‐sign-on within the Blackboard Learn platform. With this one‐click access, clients of both Student Writing Coach and Blackboard Inc. can easily access information in both systems simultaneously.

"Our new Student Writing Coach interface to the Blackboard Learn platform is key to our sales and marketing strategy. Late Night Writer focuses mainly on the college level writer, but our short-term plan is to offer a Student Writing Coach product to the secondary school market. Blackboard's highly visible presence in these markets will give us the visibility we need to be successful moving forward," said Vince Scarlata, Vice President of Sales for Late Night Writer. 

Designed and developed by professional writing instructors, Student Writing Coach gives students step by step guidance for writing, coaching students through the early stages of writing, from generating an idea for a topic, through outlining, and then on to a first draft. Students can edit, print and turn in either their outline or their complete edited draft. The site supplements the advice teachers give during class by providing similar advice as the students are working on their own.

The Blackboard Building Blocks™ program allows clients to incorporate specific add‐on tools into the Blackboard Learn platform to address unique challenges. "The flexibility of Blackboard Building Blocks provides our clients with a more customized experience. From open source tools to Blackboard Partner supported extensions, clients can truly build the Blackboard system that's right for them," said Matthew Small, Blackboard Chief Business Officer. With hundreds of extensions from Blackboard Partners and client developers available on, Blackboard Learn clients can customize unique solutions to enhance their institution's teaching and learning.

As a member in the Blackboard Alliance Program™, Late Night Writer is also part of the Blackboard Developers Network™, an innovative community of technical experts with a passion for using technology to enhance teaching and learning. Within the Blackboard Developers Network, developers from schools, colleges, universities, associations, government organizations and companies are developing software and applications -- Blackboard Building Blocks -- that extend and enhance the Blackboard Learn platform.
