Ready for learners to roll out brainpower that builds community and amps up learning outcomes?

Students love to transform sarcasm into hilarity that has everybody laughing! Some get downright silly, some sport goofy cartoons that delve their topics deeper, and some use witisms that develop high-performance minds!
