What is GaRoot?

GaRoot is a simple, fast and yet sophisticated multi-player real time quiz gaming service where you develop your own quiz based games. GaRoot is still being beta tested.

You will use GaRoot to gamify your quizzes and engage students to answer questions in real time.

How does it work?

Simply register as teacher, parent, company, user or a student.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Play
    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.

  4. Results
    Results can be viewed instantly after the game is completed. If you see any issues, please let us know.

It is basically as simple as that. GaRoot can host upto 500 users per hosted game, although it is recommended to keep the number as small as possible. To keep it engaging, try not have more than 15 questions per game.

Apologies in advance: we don't have ready to play quiz games just yet. You as an author can mark your quiz as public so when we launch our game search later in the year, others can play games created by you.

Last but not the least: GaRoot is FREE, this means that it can be slow at times. We don't have vast amount of high speed servers or bandwidth just yet. Depending on the number of users we get each day, we will look into increasing the number of resources for this project.

GaRoot is developed in Melbourne, Australia with open source technologies. Many thanks to each and every open source project that helped us develop GaRoot at a rapid pace.

We hope that you will enjoy GaRoot.
