Training in soft skills is becoming paramount in today’s educational and societal climate, and receives increasing attention in the area of intelligent learning environments for ill-defined domains. We present a study that analyses written feedback given to undergraduate students by tutors at a key stage of dissertation preparation. This allows us to identify key problems students are facing and to understand how these problems are articulated and addressed by tutors. The results of the study are applied to tailor an existing social semantic web environment (AWESOME Dissertation) to address the needs of a particular community for dissertation writing in Computing.
