Knowledge Guru Adds Video, Adaptive Learning, Faster Speeds in Winter Release

2015-winter-releaseThe Knowledge Guru platform has evolved quite a bit over the last few months. We unveiled the new “Quest” game type in October, which added an entirely new gameplay experience and performance challenges. Most importantly, Quest uses the same back-end database and spaced repetition principles that are critical to the Knowledge Guru approach.

We think every release is exciting, but Winter ’15 is especially great. We collected customer needs and feedback to add new features that make Knowledge Guru a more powerful learning tool… all while improving load times and speed.


Video Question

You asked, we listened. Now, you can embed video directly into your Knowledge Guru questions. Choose between text-based, audio or video questions throughout your games.

Adaptive Learning


The Knowledge Guru database can now create a personalized learning experience for players based on their learning needs. Mini-games at the end of each World in the Quest game type pull questions that players missed on the first attempt.

Healthcare Character Pack


We have created an all-new Quest character pack especially for our clients who work in healthcare settings. We can create a character pack for any industry you can imagine. Just ask!

Faster Speeds

We have migrated the entire Knowledge Guru database to Amazon cloud servers. The result? Faster load times for both players and authors, no matter where they are in the world.

New Player and Question Upload Capabilities

Need to load players into your game fast? Do your employees not have a company email? No problem. In addition to self registration, you can now mass upload your players into the Knowledge Guru database. Questions can be mass uploaded as well, making it easy to send subject matter experts a spreadsheet of content to review instead of having them play through your entire game.

iFrame Embed

Knowledge Guru games can already be customized with corporate logos and branding… and some customers have even set up custom integrations with their own learning portals. Now we have made Knowledge Guru games easy to embed within an iFrame. This feature is ideal for customers who wish to create a seamless branding experience for their learners.

SCORM 2004 support

Knowledge Guru is now compatible with virtually all LMS systems. Administrators can export their games as SCORM 1.2 or 2004 packages… or host the game in the cloud for expanded gameplay features and deep tracking. Experience API support is also still available across all plans.

Winter ’15 is Available Now
