how-discoveri-works

After signing up for an account, any Discoveri user can create a game - such as a multiple-choice quiz, our most popular game type - on any topic/concept, for any subject, in any language. Users can also choose a ready-to-play game from our public library on the platform.

To play Discoveri, all you need is a mobile device, laptop or desktop with an internet connection and a web browser.  

The classic​ ​live game experience​ ​is playing Discoveri in a classroom with questions displayed on a shared screen, which engages students’ attention. They use their own devices as game controllers to answer the questions. In ​challenge mode,​ ​players compete against each other remotely to reinforce knowledge they’ve gained in class. Both questions and answers are displayed on their mobile devices inside the Discoveri app.

Players don’t need an account in order to play a Discoveri, so they can remain anonymous in the game by using nicknames. Some teachers hosting games encourage students to use their real names, but this is also up to you! After a game, you can access a downloadable report including gameplay results to track student performance, assess learning outcomes, evaluate knowledge retention and gain valuable insights for your next class.
