Research and Development

iWrite was developed in the, which is located in Humboldt University’s cluster of excellence Image Knowledge Gestaltung. The impetus for its development was the observation that many students and PhD candidates experience problems finishing well-written texts on time and stress-free – even though writing is really fun when once one has found a flow and can really lose themselves in their project. Since its creation the has been examining flow, motivation, game design, and gamification. This knowledge and experience – provided by an interdisciplinary team and professional writing trainers, respectively – has been poured into iWrite.

Areas of Application

iWrite is for everyone who wants to write – or has to. It can be paragraphs, term papers, scientific articles, blogs, or even literary works. Motivation research tells us that clearly defined goals, noticeable progress, feedback cycles, and sessions with full concentration help us to stay motivated, focused, and productive – and to continually improve. Again and again writing trainers emphasize: Writing is thinking! And a good text is never simply written down. It develops together with the concept. For this reason iWrite focuses on supporting continuous writing. The more regularly someone writes, the easier and better it becomes. Moreover, iWrite is suited for use in courses and classes involving writing.


Our Team is continually improving iWrite and looking for users as well as collaborators. We are especially appreciative of inquiries from writing instructors, lecturers, institutes, and doctoral programs that would like to use iWrite in their courses. iWrite is free for groups as well as for individual users – all we would like to have is your feedback in order to make iWrite even better.
