#EdTech Recommendation

Oodlü enables students to prepare for tests and exams by playing games.

  • Teachers (or students) create question collections (or select or merge any of the 2,000,000 questions already created by other users).
  • Students then practice those questions in their choice of 20 silly games (on computers or mobile devices).
  • The oodlü approach is grounded in learning sciences research.
  • Oodlü is available in multiple languages (which currently includes Arabic, Croatian, English, French, Hebrew, Mandarin, and Slovenian). All the translations are by teachers.
  • Oodlü is a social enterprise (we prioritize supporting students and learning as well as, one day, making a profit).
