zondle hits 1,000,000 registered users

We are very proud to announce that yesterday, at 14:46PM EST (19:46 GMT), zondle gained its 1 millionth registered user! 

It has been a wonderful journey to get to this milestone and we are very grateful to the teachers and students who have taken zondle to their hearts, helping us grow such a fantastic community of zondle users. 

It seems that our approach – enabling teachers to create and share games to support learning, teaching and assessment, enabling students to play the questions in any games of their choosing, and grounding everything in high quality education, psychology and neuroscience research – is really meeting a need in classrooms worldwide. 

What is also fantastic is how zondle is being used both in the classroom and at home, on computers, interactive whiteboards and mobile devices, for homework and preparation for tests... and in many more ways besides. Together, students have answered more than 160 million questions (15 million in the last month alone) which shows that zondle is fast becoming part of the fabric of the classroom. 

So what's next? 

Well, as we continue to grow, we are developing (because teachers have asked us to!) an exciting range of premium features that we will be releasing over the next few months. The first one is already available as a free trial: school settings Plus, enabling teachers to have even more control over how their students use zondle. Watch this space for future features! 

The zondle Marketplace is growing too with English as a Foreign Language content, senior school Science and Computing coming on stream over the next few weeks. A current favourite in the Marketplace is the fantastic music content developed by a teacher (under the username LearnATune) especially for other teachers. 

Thank you so much for all your support for zondle! We really do appreciate it and look forward to receiving any feedback to help us make zondle even better for you and your students. 

Here’s looking forward to the next one million new members of the fantastic zondle community!
