“I’m getting a much higher quality discourse in my history class by using Packback because it helps the students focus on how to ask better questions. And then we’re able to have an intellectual discourse about the questions they asked and how those questions might lead to certain sorts of answers… It’s made class very interactive, active, more intellectually engaging for them. I’ve gotten better papers and better discourse in class, and I attribute a lot of that to Packback.”
