Explaining through Comics

Comixplain promotes student-centred teaching and learning. As students vary in their previous knowledge and preferences, we propose alternative didactic materials to cater to individual learning processes. We propose a novel storytelling-based strategy to engage students in learning complex scientific subjects through comics.


Comixplain is a project developed at Sankt Pölten University of Applied Sciences (STPUAS), Austria, and funded by the STPUAS' Innovation Call 2022.
