I have been using Lantern in my capacity as a computer science teacher at the Technology Center of DuPage for several years. During that time, I have developed many resources to help introduce students to playing text-adventures and writing their own. I have posted some of them here in the hope that it might encourage other educators to create text-adventure units of their own. If you are an educator and would like to use Lantern, please contact me. I will be happy to assist you in any way I can.
