For individual inquiry and collaborative research, NoodleTools:

Paves the way for original, high-quality work

NoodleTools gives students a systematic but flexible framework for navigating the tangled web of research. Students develop expert critical-thinking skills, gain confidence, and replace patchwriting and plagiarism with synthesis.

Grows with students, novice to expert

From a novice’s research question to a graduate student’s thesis, the three levels of NoodleTools provide a mental model for research and a common language across faculty and disciplines.

NoodleTools pulls back the curtain so that you can offer early, in-context feedback on students’ work at predictable bottlenecks and ahead of the writing space.
