Termling is a website that brings together gaming and learning, in which not only instructors but students themselves collaborate to provide the most relevant, useful, and efficient study materials. The users create their own personal Termling avatars that they can customize through using the points earned from utilizing study sets and tools. The study materials available are easily personalized through adjustments on difficulty as well as content, and personal achievements and records are reviewable in order to help keep track of individual progress. Not only does Termling offer its users actual helpful study materials, it motivates the students and makes learning fun!
De Knovo Technology—its name rooted in the Latin phrase de novo, which means to start from the beginning—aims to truly push the boundaries of studying to be desirable and fun for students. Not only does De Knovo strive for innovation that starts from the beginning in terms of the development of its products, but it also believes in a need for creating strong, positive ties to studying for students.
An avid fan of video games, the founder Salvador Deniz, Jr. found that his student career oftentimes left him no time to explore his passion in gaming because of a constant need to focus on his studies. This rift between his educational life and personal life also began to turn studying into a stressor rather than something enjoyable. Unfortunately, De Knovo knows this to be true of educational experiences for many students today, who face more and more demanding pressures from the educational system. In an effort to remedy this, De Knovo constantly strives to create new modes of fusing gaming with learning to not only help students but educators alike.
While media and technology has become proliferated with learning games that prove to be fun and efficient, many of these tools oftentimes only apply gaming features to learning sites and apps with no real consideration for the art of gaming. De Knovo Technology seeks to overturn this relation by finding creative ways to merge real game design principles with educational methods in order to pave a new way for the field of education.
