MERLOT has developed training for Peer Reviewers to
ensure that they become familiar with MERLOT processes and policies on
Peer Review. MERLOT Management conducts GRAPE Camp (Getting Reviewers
Accustomed to the Process of Evaluation) to train Peer Reviewers on a
regular basis. GRAPE Camp consists of a series of three one-hour
workshops online, one per week. In these webinars, participants will:
Develop an understanding of MERLOT
Learn how MERLOT evaluates Learning Materials
Conduct a group review
Complete an Individual Review
Learn how to use the Workspace tool, and
Introduce participants to the Editorial Board of their disciplines.
The webinars include people

the material as needed. For information about GRAPE Camp, contact Cathy Swift . You can read a little more about GRAPE Camp by downloading our brochure.

Arabic orthography is a cursive system, running from right to left. Only consonants and long vowels are written. There is no upper and lower case distinction, nor can the isolated forms of letters normally be juxtaposed to form words.
The Art of Arabic Calligraphy
Arabic belongs to the group of Semitic alphabetical scripts in which mainly the consonants are represented in writing, while the markings of vowels (using diacritics) is optional.
