How I Use It
We started with cell phone and cyber safety comics. Then moved to history related comics since there are historical figures in the program. Students have created comic strips for extra credit in their history class at home using their accounts.
My Take
I have been using it for a short time but students were very engaged, especially the low level learners. So of the edit features are a little clunky to use and I could do with out the devil and angel characters. But I started with the free trial version and felt it was worth spending $45 for a years license.
