This would certainly be usable resource to incorporate into Critical Thinking workshops. They provide a free 30 day trial download access to test-dive! You can also review various aspects of the offerings available and there are various packages, as well. The book list is excellent, also.

Technical Remarks:

This Web site is designed for ease of use. And provides excellent readily pracicable techniques that promote brain-storming and critical thinking. I think my participants will find using this in groups will be engaging, useful and fun!
