Abstract: This chapter extends the scope of the term ‘seamless learning’ to include writing as one of the most prominent learning activities in education. The seamless learning concept is used to analyse the ongoing flow of digital innovation with respect to the changing instructional and intellectual positioning of writing in its various contexts. The term ‘seams’ is interpreted as frictions or barriers in the writer’s experience, and the concept of ‘seamlessness’ refers to coherence in the practice and learning of writing. In order to understand the impact of digitisation on writing, this chapter recaps on the major development steps of digital writing technology, before offering an example of an integrated learning platform for the writing of academic theses which intends to offer students a seamless writing experience. The results indicate that the term seamlessness in the context of writing should not be directly associated with mobile learning or to the ubiquitous learning opportunities which are qualities that writing technologies have already offered for some time. Other more recent technological changes have provided considerably greater impact on what the authors term as ‘seamless writing’.
