This paper presents a web based interactive tool designed to teach freewriting - a well known writing technique useful to everyone producing text - through step-by-step instructions and interactive feedback which is not possible in face-to-face teaching. The Freewriting Module is part of the Study Metro; a web based resource organizing a collection of guided tours by applying a metro map metaphor. The Study Metro aims at teaching academic writing to students at university level. This paper shortly introduces the Study Metro and more thoroughly describes the interactive Freewriting Module. It is argued that the Freewriting Module, being designed for a digital medium, offers a unique potential for giving individual process feedback on the student's writing. Positive feedback from a group of students has shown that our work serves as a common reference regarding writing issues
