Are you requiring your students to complete a thesis for a Master’s program or are you finishing your dissertation yourself? There is a support site that was highly recommended to me called PhinisheD. Check it out and pass it on to your students.
The purpose of PhinisheD is to provide a non-threatening and supportive online environment for dissertation and thesis writers and others who are struggling in academia. You can create a free account and start writing posts on the forum, and you can announce when you’re dissertation/thesis was completed! I also found the links page very helpful. It lists some software for concept mapping and research and writing guides, just to name a few. If you use it, let me know what you think!
