Community Testimonials

I checked out your Digital Storytelling course – I think it is upbeat, very readable, and easy to follow.

I used the reading on John McCrae’s Flanders Fields with my intermediate ESL students who found it highly informative, delivered in concise chunks making it easier for them to absorb.  It has inspired them to read more about Canadian historical events and the people who shaped them.
