How I Use It
I introduce it as a way to learn about beginning gaming. Students complete quests to earn game components. After the initial introduction, it is used when students are finished with a required lesson and they also visit the site at home.
My Take
I really need to go through all the quests and be sure to take notes as I go. Because I use it as a filler, it is perfect for that.
