Lee Tesdell and students. "Software Editing and Revising Tools: What Do Instructors and Students Say about Their Role in Writing Instruction?"
Instructors a little suspect when it comes to tools; students pretty positive. One instructor values EasyBib, which has come up a few times today.

Title: What's in Your Wish Whoosh? Collaborative Learning Environments Revisited
Dan talked through his class about online collaborative writing; one of his favorite suite of tools seems to be Zoho, which has spreadsheets, wikis, and project management tools. Dan set up the students part by asking them, "what 5 tools would they include in a browser"? Corey went with a research database, the Firefox scrapbook extension, a thesaurus/dictionary, Google Docs, and any chat software. Lisa went with research database with a split screen approach, chat, sample templates (exploratree?), notes, and a bib-maker. Impressive array of tools and implementation.
