Tutpup: A Social Learning Site for Kids
Tutpup is a social learning site where students and teachers can compete with each other by playing different educational games. The service focuses on helping children gain confidence and mastery of basic educational skills. A user may register as a teacher or as a student. Teachers can let students join the class through a class code that the teacher provided. The service is free for any child to use and children can only participate with their parent or guardian’s approval.
A user can choose to play a game of Math, Maths Mix, Spelling and TimeTables. Upon choosing which game to play, the user can wait for another player to accept the challenge or he/she can instantly play a game with a random player in the network. Each game category comes in different levels of difficulty (from level 1 [Easy Peasy] to level 8[Area 51]).
The Graduation page shows your progress through the games and levels. You need to answer 10 correct questions in 3 games to graduate to the next level. The win wall page displays the triumphs of a user over another player. This will provide motivation for young children to master different educational skills through competition. Tutpup can be a valuable tool for teachers who are looking for additional learning tool for students. It’s a fun way of teaching and a fun way of learning.
