Applications of Gliffy in education

I know since Gliffy is not all free then most of us will not be using it a lot .But if you have ever decided to use it then you can really create such fantastic diagrams to use with your students in the classroom .What i like the most about Gliffy is that when you embed a diagram into your blog or wiki and then later on decided to make some changes on that diagram then these changes are automatically displayed on your blog or wiki so there is no need to embed it again . i hope you like Gliffy and that you would consider giving it a try .
