“I’m using Packback in my junior-level Introduction to Mycology course. Packback has proven to be a wonderful forum by which my students can expand upon the content covered in class in areas that intrigue them. They’re very excited about contributing to the learning of the class. I hear them talking about the Packback questions and how they are excited to get responses from their classmates…So I think it’s been a wonderful addition for an outside-of-class activity that has contributed to the overall quality of the course.”
