Learning through game based outdoor movement

Under the vision "learning through games and physical activity", Wittario wanted to change the way we learn. We boldly wanted to change a 1000 year old proven tradition of reading and listening, by improving it using technology.

The result is the Wittario platform, that moves audiences off their office chairs, school desks and sofas and out onto a fun and effective hunt for knowledge. The best part is that anyone can create content and games for all.

Our Technology

Wittario has two main components; a player app and a content and game manager website.

Player app

The player app can be downloaded from App Store or Android Play. The app provides players with a navigation map to locate task waypoints. When reaching a task, the app will present a question or a task to be completed. Sometimes, a link to additional resources will be provided. Players will be notified how they are scoring compared to their competitors.

Once the tasks are created – all that is left is to place waypoints on the map and assign a task to each one. Choose players or teams on off they go!

Currently we support the following languages: English, Norwegian and Polish.

What is augmented reality (AR)?

AR is a technology that combines data from the physical world with virtual data, for example using graphics and sound. You get an extra layer of information on top of what you would see with the naked eye. We do this through the lens of your digital device such as a mobile phone. The additional information will typically not replace reality, but expand it in one or more ways.
