In 2012, we started a consumer game/app company. It was a simple idea and a clear vision: develop a trivia game that is fun, fast-paced, and social. By 2013, Trivie Battle of Wits was one of the fastest growing apps of all time and became the #1 game on the Apple App Store. During this time, we started to recognize that people were learning topics based on a spaced testing concept, especially when interleaved with topics based upon a user’s affinities. We knew that we were onto something.
Using the same intelligent trivia engine as Trivie Battle of Wits, we deepened the focus on the science of learning. We drew from adaptive learning for personalization, the brain science techniques of retrieval practice for automation, and gamification as a process to better engage learners. This high retention of training information started to quickly translate into increased employee productivity and improved overall effectiveness of every company we worked with.
But we took it a step further. We made our microlearning platform 100% self-service so companies could easily self-administer in minutes, we made it ridiculously inexpensive, and we wrapped it in detailed analytics that could verify knowledge retention over time. That’s Trivie — a fun, simple way to help employees remember training information longer that's based on science, automated with AI, and delivered as a fun trivia game.
Over the past few weeks, news of the spread of COVID-19, or coronavirus disease, is affecting all of our families, our businesses, our communities, and our way of life. During this time, I wanted to reach out and update our customers, friends, and partners on how we’re approaching the situation at Trivie.
At Trivie, as at your companies, we’re focused on the health and safety of our employees, families and communities. We have asked all of our employees to follow the federal, local, and the Centers for Disease Control guidelines for prevention. You can learn more about those guidelines here (link).
For our clients, we realize this is a challenging time, business continuity is critical, especially since all in-person meetings and training events have been canceled. In that regard, we can assist you in a smooth transition in that area via our remote learning technology.
We have pre-populated Trivie with critical COVID-19 information from the CDC, The World Health Organization, and Harvard Medical School, so you can engage employees with this information now and in the weeks ahead. This content is free to use;
We are offering free onboarding and launch services for Trivie; and
We are including free, full-suite analytics to identify where our clients may have knowledge risks on COVID-19 (so they can address in real-time).
All of this is available to any client or future of Trivie today, and we can guarantee a ‘go live’ to any sized remote workforce in a week or less. Usually inside of one business day.
For all these topics and many others that we didn’t cover in this message, please remember that we’re always online to answer any question you may have (you can email our 24-hour contact center at COVIDfirstname.lastname@example.org).
We hope you, your family, and your loved ones are staying in good health, and if there’s anything that we can help you with, please just let us know.
