Does anyone like citations?
But they are an important part of research.
Noodle Tools makes the daunting task of knowing where to put a period, and when to use italics, more manageable. It gives students the option of picking the citation style that is required for their class and walks them through each source step-by-step.
This research tool can help students keep projects organized by providing virtual note cards, and a space to create outlines and checklists. Noodle Tools is also a useful platform for collaboration. It is a space where multiple students are able to work on the same project.
