All the alternative facial expressions and body movements, as well as speech bubbles, added to students' ability to get just the right mood. It was not only fun for the students, but there were so many options the students could use to make the comic fit the scene.

On-task time during class was incredibly high, and all the students enjoyed sharing their comics on the Smartboard with the rest of the class. It is amazing how these tech-native students quickly master this medium.

Awesome. I found it very well designed and I enjoyed the oversight the program gives teachers over their classes.
