How does it work?
- Author a new GaRoot
A quiz can be gamified in less than 2 minutes depending on the number of questions. You can create a multi language learning game in less than 5 minutes. There are 7 question types to choose from.
- Host your GaRoot
You will need a big screen (monitor, tele, projector etc) to show questions. As all users participating in the game could see the questions screen, your students, work mates, family or friends will get involved and have fun.
A "game code" will be produced when you host a game. Your students, work mates, family or friends will join a GaRoot with the provided game code and answer questions shown on the big screen.
Results can be viewed instantly after the game is completed. If you see any issues, please let us know.
