How was the ease of access in building your flipbook, despite this being the free and limited version of the software?

I thought at first the website was very hard to understand and it was a bit confusing. After playing around with the website for a while I found it got easier and easier.

Were you able to apply the skills you learned in the planning stages appropriately to a digital environment? 

yes, during my planning stages I wrote down people, events, technology… with some information on them. I than picked the ones I liked the best and made my trading cards.

What were the sources you researched that made this an “authentic make-believe” American Revolution flipbook?

The sources I used were the text books on teams. I found most of the information on there. If I couldn’t find it on the textbooks I would look in my notes from class or look it up.

Is there other software online that could have done the job better? Did you use another software instead? Explain.

I think this website was the perfect one because with power point, sway, word… you can’t get a front and a back and I feel like with this you get the full experience of an “online baseball card”.
