A New Video Trivia Platform is Revolutionizing The Way We Learn & Play
An innovative crowdsource video tirvia platform has launched. Blubbr (Blubbr.tv) is introducing consumers to new kind of personalized trivia game platform. Learn more about how Blubbr is taking on the domain of video trivia.
TEL AVIV — After a full year of development work and planning, Blubbr (Blubbr.tv) launched in the beginning of 2013 and the way we create, play, and learn from trivia games is about to dramatically change for the better. Blubbr is a new and innovative crowdsource video trivia platform that is already becoming a big hit for educators, students, trivia lovers and bloggers.
Since Blubbr’s launch 6 months ago, users from around the world have created over 13,000 unique ‘trivs‘ (video quizzes) with over 40,000 trivia questions. Categories range from TV, Celebrities, and Gaming to Education, Politics, and Science – so Blubbr is attracting a wide range of triv creators and players. Users can easily sign up via Facebook, Twitter, or email account and have immediate access to creating their own trivs using YouTube video clips and plugging in their own questions and answers. If signed in via Facebook, Blubbr provides an added benefit of personalization by serving up “recommended trivs” based on a user’s Facebook activity and social behavior.
Delivering Knowledge From Games
For a startup with a background in web development, user experience, and cloud-based computing, it’s no wonder that the fun design of Blubbr immediately invites and engages users to jump in and play. Yet beyond the usual entertaining trivia games about music or favorite TV shows, users are beginning to use Blubbr in very unique and personalized ways – and this is what differentiates it from other trivia games in the past.
Band members, for example, are starting to embed their personal trivs onto their own websites and social network pages in order to interact with their fans in new and creative ways. Engaged couples are crafting their own custom trivs and challenging their partners or friends on how well they know each other.
Yet, perhaps the most unexpected – and influential – impact has been seen in the field of education. Blubbr is literally delivering knowledge from games and its fun nature has the potential of becoming an integral classroom tool. Teachers, lecturers, and education bloggers have quickly picked up on Blubbr’s teaching value and have been buzzing about its possibilities for students. Some teachers are creating their own trivs to function as quizzes and measure the performance of their students’ progress. Others have their students create their own trivs, either as pre-testing reviews or even as an alternative to book reports. As written up by Clif Mims, a teacher, researcher, and speaker, “Developing trivs can be a fun way for students to reflect on a novel, science unit, historical event, poetry, or the highlights of their school year.”
Blubbr has the ability to leverage technology and social networking to excite both students and teachers. A well known and widely established technology education company recently recognized Blubbr’s potential and is seeking to make Blubbr compatible with one of its own platforms. The educational partnerships and opportunities are already becoming a reality for this small startup and soon Blubbr may become a “household name” in the field of education.
Taking on the Domain of Video Trivia
“We want to become the Wikipedia of video trivia games,” say the founders of Blubbr. With new trivs being created all the time, the startup’s database of customized video segments and quiz questions is continuously climbing, further diversifying and enriching the categorization of information.
While the data is expanding at a rapid rate, technology is advancing and the way we socialize online and offline is continuing to evolve. Looking towards the future, Blubbr sees a world where video trivia is seamlessly integrated into the social fabric of our lives. Whether it be in public spaces on big screens or in the comfort of our homes in front of the television, we will be able to create and play video trivs with others in any given situation – and Blubbr intends to be the go-to destination for video trivia.
