Big History Adventures provides its users a unique, high-end learning experience in the field of History. Utilizing various multimedia resources, the product allows students not only to have quality fun and entertainment, but also to learn in depth the aspects of history that are never covered in a regular classroom. It is a work of art in terms of sophistication and storytelling, and should be adopted by every single educational institution around the globe.

As a historian and professor I anticipate that the release of this innovative product will truly change how students learn. The possibilities are endless as this digital book application will benefit a multitude of learners. Teachers will be able to engage their students in unprecedented ways. How this technology connects historical themes, characters, and concepts with interactive narratives will give instructors the freedom to break away from traditional lectures and assignments. This platform will also make it easier to demonstrate the patterns and connections that weave throughout history. For those who struggle to teach thematic history this product will be of great assistance as it can help introduce larger themes and then break them down with individual stories that will interest students. I am excited for its launch and believe it will be an essential tool for teachers and students in both traditional and online classrooms.

This is an innovative platform that teaches some pretty important historic lessons, and at the same time it's very entertaining. This is the perfect combination for students who seem to demand more and more effort on the part of educators to get and hold their attention. This has enough flashy graphics etc to do that trick, but it doesn't compromise on historical rigor and has substantive content. I highly recommend it.

History Adventures introduced me to heroes I never heard of. I also became acquainted with them on a human level because of the way the story was presented and the game was designed. I was touched and taken by not only their human-hero stories but also by the effects and music incorporated that created a truly immersive learning experience. With gaming becoming a very powerful tool in many areas, I can clearly see how History Adventures will be appreciated and used by school and university Gen Z students who are looking for fun, fast and fact-based learning mechanisms.

Big History Adventures has real potential to illustrate some of the most thorny aspects of teaching this area of the past—how we focus students’ attention on the most profound aspects of the natural and human world to trace change over time. It vividly shows how individual lives can be affected by broad forces that humans often do not directly perceive—for example, vast shifts in the world’s climate—yet which ultimately have the potential to affect human choices and historical patterns. The fact that Big History Adventures is also, quite simply, fun only adds to its potential as a teaching tool.

The idea of 'History Adventures' using modern media that most have grown up with to tell the stories of the past that resonate through our culture and our DNA is basically a no-brainer. It harkens back to the beginnings of history with Homer's Odyssey and the Iliad telling that history in poetic form to engage the peoples of that time through their medium: oral poetry. We live in the 21st century and our history should be told in the media of our times: text, poem, music, games, video, virtual reality, augmented reality, holographic immersion, whatever medium that brings us together.

We didn't stop using clay tablets because we ran out of clay, we stopped using clay tablets because there was a better medium to tell, translate, preserve and transmit our Histories.
