Grammarly is an extension that is available for the Chrome browser and for the Safari browser.  After you have it installed, it is very simple to use. When it is enabled in your Internet browser, Grammarly will automatically detect and flag potential errors in spelling and grammar.  It is very similar to the functionality you might expect to see in Microsoft Word.  It works on nearly every website, including discussion forums and tests in our learning environment. When it catches a mistake, it will underline it in either red (for spelling) or green (for grammar). Just click on this underlined word and see the suggestions that Grammarly displays.

Basically, Grammarly is spell check for the web! Watch this short video from Grammarly to learn more!
