I can't provide any information for all of the issues here--but I could
suggest that they look into the University of Ottawa's on-line grammar lab.
It has an ESL orientation. It is also one of the best grammar labs that I
found when I went looking into various OWLs for a course I was designing.
It was the only lab that I found that had some interactive aspects to it.
Have they done a search of OWLs to find out what is available? Tell them to
start at Purdue's site as it connects to most of the others.
