Skoolbo is a graphically beautiful 3D world where children can race against peers or virtual characters as they practice literacy and math skills which are "randomly" chosen for their skill level. Mr. Hill pointed out that the aim is to keep children engaged in the game for at least three years through an engaging environment, progressively challenging content and unique rewards. The games are set up to reward children every 15-20 minutes of play and after achieving 5000 points (approximately 6 weeks of play), there is a graduation ceremony which includes a party hosted by family members in Jib Jab style animations. Children can also collect points/coins which can exchanged for cool rewards such as super hero costumes. The feature that parents and teachers will love, is the ability to receive detailed progress reports as well as the opportunity to receive emails and alerts notifying them of important developments in student achievement.
