Its a bit ironic given the title of this assignment - Comic Timing - that I haven't been able to find time to complete this one. I can however point you to a case study that we completed here with Glasgow School of Art Library Service about how they used Comic Life to create resources to assist their library induction processes.

You can hear a podcast about the project here. The podcast features Jude Boyd, IT librarian at the Glasgow School of Art who explains how the library team worked together to create a 'comic book' style induction resources for students and staff. The goal was to create an alternative and a more visual style of presenting information for library users which would make the information more accessible to a wider range of users. For example students with dyslexia, those learners with more visual learning styles and also for overseas students who may not have English as their first language.

Take a look at the resources here:
