- Your instructor will correct your essays from now on using a software computer program. The software will highlight parts of your essay and provide some comment or suggestions for improvement. The instructor will send you two files: one file in RTF format which will open automatically in your word-processing software (e.g. MSWord or Pages) and another file in HTML format which will open automatically in your browser. The content of both files will be the same: your corrected essay.
