How I Use It
i used it myself to create interesting hooks to begin my class and had my students use it to apply infomration learned and/or synthesize something new.
My Take
both the students and myself enjoyed the basic idea but when we dove into the actual creation, we found that the features that sounded so neat (extensive manipulations of characters & backgrounds) were really very tedious & difficult.
