    fwiw - I have contacted the professors and provided info about the PACE Trial to see if they might use it in the class.

    I'm sure David Tuller could offer them some tips.

    Interestingly the video game MGS 2 was based on this concept. That with so much information around it was near impossible to tell truth from fiction. Everything could be simulated to create your own truth.

    That technology exsits even today. Soon even video evidence could not be used to prove things.

    I think my partner (a lecturer) is going to love these resources. Essentially it is the most important skill to teach students but much trickier than teaching content.
