How I Use It
this can be used in a multitude of ways: I've used it with students who have been absent, or need extra instruction. I've also used it as a personal review for my instruction, for example, concepts in which I'm weak, but are nevertheless important for my curriculum. This has also been beneficial with my own children. They've used it for extra help. My wife and I have used it solve intellectual disputes.
My Take
This is an excellent tool and is also an app that can be downloaded onto a tablet. The speakers are generally very engaging and have been well-prepared
