Zondle Team Play Remote released (BYOD)


We’ve been busy again at zondle listening to your feedback and developing new things to make the zondle experience better for you.

Today we release zondle Team Play Remote which connects any internet enabled device to your zondle Team Play whiteboard activity.

Simply open team play as normal, register the devices for your teams and continue as normal.  Now your teams can select answers on their mobile devices and see those choices update in real time on the zondle Team Play whiteboard.

Using zondle Team Play Remote is FREE and brings BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) to your classroom, wherever you are in the world.

The following video explains it all in detail.  The Internet totally rocks!

zondle Mobile v2 released - any topic, any game, anywhere

UPDATE: zondle mobile is now available for Apple iOS devices.



Imagine: you’re thirteen years old, you’re on your way to school, and when you get there you’re going to have a French vocab test. Of course, you’ve done a bit of revision... but time's running out and you’d rather be playing a game.

That’s where the vision for zondle started. Imagine that same student sitting on their bus playing games AND preparing for their vocab test, all at the same time!

It was this concept that most excited me personally - any school topic, any zondle game, anywhere.
  • You’re standing at the bus stop, play on zondle Mobile.
  • You’re waiting for a friend, play on zondle Mobile.
  • Class is about to start, play on zondle Mobile.
A few minutes here and there. All good fun of course, but learning what you want to learn (or what your teacher has asked you to learn) at the same time!

We are delighted to be able to announce that this is now a reality. Today we release the new zondle Mobile platform on Android, with iOS coming as soon as we’re through the Apple submission process.

We’ve built zondle Mobile from scratch creating a totally new experience (whilst learning from our previous mobile app).

zondle Mobile comes packed with new features:
  • Lightning fast (uses hardware acceleration)
  • More games (with audio and voice)
  • Ability to create teacher, student, and parent accounts
  • Score logging & statistics (results available on main zondle site)
  • My favourites
  • Topics my teacher has set me
  • Support

zondle Mobile also supports a variety of zondle question types:
  • Multiple choice
  • Question and Answer
  • True or False
  • Click the missing word
  • Statements

Click here to watch the zondle Mobile platform videos.

Any feedback is, of course, very welcome.

Zondle mobile - performance preview - Space Destroyer game

This video introduces the final game that we are developing for the initial release of the new zondle mobile app.  It illustrates the speed improvements that we have made.

The mobile app supports openGL rendering and full GPU accelleration.  This game uses particle systems and physics to create a modern take on an arcade classic.  Performance seems to be just as good on Android devices and is smooth on iPhone as well as iPad.

Enjoy!
