lessons

First examples showing what can be done, as a much more powerful way of use of the project. The goal is to present a lesson, or in other words a more complex topic from the story, usually covering different events and moments.

The lesson guides us through them, while leaving the application 100% functional, so that at all times one can see the rest of the context of what is being explaining. In this way, it seeks to enhance the person's analytical capabilities, and incentivize your own discovery and learning process. One can go back and forth through the lesson freely, and switch between different available lessons. The lessons are also sensitive to the context, so those that correspond to the time in question will be presented.

Lesson

Users can use existing lessons or create their own.
