The students are more engaged, question have to be answered on the fly, totally accessible for all students,

How do you use Actively Learn with your students? What type of content do you assign? 

Primarily use AL for short stories and Shakespeare.  It is fabulous for Shakespeare because it lets me add "crib notes" and translations to make the text easier for the students to comprehend (plus added videos) - plus the quizzes are self marking (basically) -- Also have books loaded for students who can't acquire their own books. 

What advice would you have for teachers who are new to Actively Learn? 

Do as much as you can through AL -- make it interactive with a variety of questions - add videos to keep students engaged.  Even reluctant readers love AL.
