XO ImageQuiz is an open-source game for kids aged 6-14 with a simple concept: one question, one image, one click; becoming one of the greatest learning experiences of the future :-)

  • Learning Tool (Demo)
    • Kids can explore, create, share and translate questions
    • Mess around with the database: create, delete, download and share bundles
    • Play single-player games with flashcard-system or just a plain quick quiz-game
    • Multi-player games over the mesh - either vs or in coop mode
    • Extend the game by plugins they create (and share) or download via web / mesh / schoolserver
    • Get introductive reading and further links for each question
  • Teaching Tool
    • Teachers can easily build individual question-packages accompanying their lessions (and share / download them)
    • Resarching a topic and creating questions for subtopics, as well as engaging in those of other groups, can be part of classes and homeworks
