Content

How do you ensure content is accurate and aligned with standards?

We use a rigorous content quality testing process that includes teachers, external curriculum experts, and our internal academic team. Each group of games is reviewed to match the content standard, whether it is based on NGSS, Common Core or specific state standards.

Is Legends of Learning developing games for other subjects and grades?

We currently have thousands of math and science games available for grades 3-8. We will be launching more subjects in the future!

Are the games teacher reviewed?

Yes. Every game comes with teacher and student reviews so that educators know how the games were received in the classroom before adding it to their playlist(s). In addition, all games are reviewed by our curriculum staff, teacher Ambassadors, and the outside curricular experts. Games are distinguished by I as an instructional game, and Q if they are questions-based efforts.

General

How much time does Legends of Learning require to achieve results?

Generally, the research that Legends of Learning is based on indicates that results will become obvious within six weeks. Legends of Learning works within specific learning objectives or lesson topics. Progress should be measured against the amount of time a lesson on a particular subject takes. So, if a teacher is covering one topic during a week using the games to supplement lessons, then the games success should be measured by overall performance during that time period.

Can I purchase Legends of Learning if I am a parent or individual consumer?

Nothing can prevent an individual from signing up for a teacher and learning with a free teacher account. We now offer Legends Academy for students to play at home for free. Parents can also unlock more features for their kids. Find out more here

Do you only offer games for science and math?

We currently offer thousands of math and science games for grades 3-8. We will be releasing more subjects in the future.

How often do new games come out?

New games come out periodically and are announced online and via our email newsletter. As of now we offer thousands of standard aligned games for Math and Science. We will also release games for new subjects in the future.

What does it mean to launch a playlist?

Launching a playlist” is how teachers share games with their students. Teachers will create a playlist with games and/or assessments within a learning objective. Students will then join that playlist using a teacher code and begin playing the games and/or assessments in the playlist the teacher has created. 

How does Legends of Learning work?

Legends of Learning is a game based learning (GBL) platform that gives educators the unique ability to launch a “playlist” of curriculum-based games for students, aligned to current content standards. Find out more about our company here

Tech

Why Is Legends of Learning blocked at my school/district?

Please have your school or district’s IT department unblock our domains. Have them unblock:

* legendsoflearning.com (http://legendsoflearning.com/)
* play.lol

For clarity, your IT team should not limit to www prefix or alpha subdomain. Rather, they should unblock the above three domains in their entirety including all subdomains. (An example of a subdomain: www.legendsoflearning.com (http://www.legendsoflearning.com/), vs. legendsoflearning.com (http://legendsoflearning.com/)).

We are happy to speak to your IT department to take care of this. If you have a contact there, that will help and probably speed things up. Email us at support[@]legendsoflearning.com. Otherwise we will search for the right contact.
