How I Use It
I conduct seminars for EL groups from the different university courses. Sutori keeps my lists of students, thus assigning tasks for various groups or individuals is only one click away. I have found this application extremely useful for writing purposes. I can create a template for an Inquiry/Enquiry Letter for example, add instructions and tips, and ask my students to submit their letters as their individual entries to the timeline. Then I can ask more experienced next term students to do peer-reviews and add their comments. We practice Jigsaw technique a lot trying to be time-efficient and Sutori helps students simultaneously transform all their inputs into one story, which can be presented at the end of the activity by a member from any Jigsaw group. Moreover those students who were absent due to whatever reasons can gain from our class work.
Sutori is easy to sign in, has simple user friendly interface, thus an Academic can have students ready to use this app almost immediately. I have noticed two things to improve so far (but the Support team said they are working on it):
1) At the moment individual entries have to be attributed to their authors manually
2) There is no chance to copy an entry and paste it to another story
