How I Use It
I use this comic creator as another way to assess concept mastery in a World Language Classroom. Students create comics that demonstrate usage of the subjunctive mood, direct object pronouns, agreement of adjectives, etc. Bonus points if it's actually funny in the target language.
My Take
It's great because set-up is quick and the UI is not overly complicated by too many choices. It also supports foreign characters. Students can print or e-mail completed comics, but they cannot save or embed them. I really wish there was an embed feature for sharing and collaboration.
