LevelUp

“Asia and the U.K.’s first Educational MMORPG” LevelUp is a personal development platform for ‘K-12’ students (aged 3 to 18) that enhances their academic and holistic development. LevelUp offers a Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG) experience where children can interact, collaborate and build on their interpersonal skills while learning from curriculum-aligned content developed in-house and sourced from publishers. LevelUp measures users’ interactions in a virtual world and generates both academic activities for children and holistic activities for parent-teacher bonding, based on advanced analytics. For parents and teachers, LevelUp features a companion application which tracks children’s psychometric profile (via the OCEAN Model) and academic profile, based on which it offers developmental activities.
