Purpose & objective

Why not turn your students into real YouTuber stars, so they can be the providers of fun chats to demonstrate their interest and love of learning from classic authors like Shakespeare, Dante Alighieri, Edgar Allan Poe, etc. This will make easier to hold the attention of students in and outside the classroom!
With the use of forums and the gamification system, you’ll keep your students interested, you’ll promote their participation by giving them badges to recognize their best contributions, encouraging a respectful and positive working environment.

Talk to the authors and learn the meaning of their famous quotes and main literary contributions, in what time these emerged and what was the context when they were written.
Quotes like: “much ado about nothing” or “if dogs bark is because we are making progress”?
