It was interesting and has possibilities for use in class. I found that it was very difficult to see where the clues were and could only find 10 out of the 12. The rolling mouse pointer onto items did not easily reveal without going very slowly.

This is a fun exercise and I think it is definitely applicable at the start of a community college introduction to criminal justice course, and a low level introduction to policing course. I would definintely use it. Technologically it seems manageable.
