What are Guroo's system requirements?

Guroo is browser based, so our requirements are pretty minimal. Guroo is compatible with the following browsers:


- Internet Explorer 9 or above

- Firefox 20 or above

- Chrome 25 or above

- Safari 4 or above


Important Note - Guroo will not work with Internet Explorer 8 or below. Previous versions of other browsers will work intermittently, but they are not supported. Return

Is Guroo iPad compatible?

Partially. We are working towards 100% iPad compatibility, but we aren't there just yet. We expect to reach that goal by fall of 2014. As of right now, most of our game templates and our Game Creator are still running on the Flash platform. We have updated our three most popular games to HTML5 and they have been tested on the iPad. Those games are Quiz Time, Flashcards, and Matching.

The other way to add students is by going to the "Classes" page, clicking on the "Manage Class" link, then clicking the "Add Students" button. You\'ll enter the student\'s first name and last initial and they will be added to that class automatically. The students user name and password will be generated automatically.

Once you have activities in your bank, you can click the link that says "Assign to class", and then select the class to which you want to add that activity and set due dates.
