How I Use It
I use this with classes when I need them to complete a professional design but am not teaching design skills (like in a graphic design course). It helps them create professional looking newsletters or brochures with easy pre-designed templates. It's somewhat hard to edit or navigate using the ipad app, and sometimes I need students to be on a laptop to access all the templates easier, but the end products look amazing.
My Take
This takes the design away from students and allows them to really focus on what information they want to share. It can be tricky when they select a design with not enough space for text, but it has every option to add more. It offers students a way to make professional products without really having to know design concepts, which is (and should be) a class on its own.
