We'd like to welcome Moriarty-Edgewood School District to Alludo! They launched their MESD66 game on August 11--and already have 145 players signed up.
By now, you know we've said goodbye to Chrome Warrior. While we're still offering our platform and all of it's features, it was time to move on to a brand that would better reflect the direction we're heading in, and where we'll be focusing our efforts in the future.
Chrome Warrior implied a certain leaning towards technology, but our platform had always been about more than that. We'll always keep a sharp focus on teacher professional development and our relationships with our partner school districts. However, we feel that Alludo's gamified learning experience can be beneficial to anyone, including students and other educational organizations. We'll be enhancing the ways the game can provide personalized, choice-based learning.
We hope that all of our partners will continue to use our platform to encourage collaborative (yet competitive) opportunities for bite-sized learning. Breaking knowledge down into smaller pieces makes it easier to "digest," and take the necessary time to apply it in real-life situations.
Our shift to Alludo could not be possible without the input of our friends at school districts across the state--and now, nationwide! Thanks to you, we've been able to hone in our objectives. Your insights aren't only important to us, their important to your peers in other school districts. That's why we'll continue to support and grow our catalog, and it's open-sourced, collaborative model at no additional cost.
Aside from our new brand, we're working on another exciting feature: author-branded content designed specifically for professional development & teachers. Stay tuned!
We knew that we had to change. Alludo, formerly Chrome Warrior, had grown from an application supporting technology PD for teachers into a platform supporting district-wide professional learning. Our audience has expanded from primarily teachers to now supporting games and learning for administrators, principals, students, and now discussions of parents is in the mix.
Still, when you start with a name, it's difficult to imagine another.
Fortunately, we had help from many of our existing district game administrators - tech coaches, TOSAs, and players. Their participation and honest, candid feedback in our many conversations gave us keen insight. We can't thank everyone enough!
In the end, we landed on a name that we are very excited about. It brings in all the fun and adventure of Chrome Warrior and allows us to leap into the next chapter of our learning adventure with you!
With that, we are pleased to announce that on the evening of August 11th, Chrome Warrior became...
