    Posted by MobyMax on February 08, 2022

    What do your students know…compared to what they NEED to know? And how do you get them from NEEDING to know something to actually knowing it?

    “What a great way to motivate everyone in the classroom!”

    Posted by MobyMax on December 09, 2021

    Engaging students who find school difficult is one of the greatest challenges teachers face. But it can be equally perplexing to keep highly motivated students involved, since anyone can lose interest in learning when lessons get boring or predictable.

    No wonder MobyMax’s Teacher Rewards tool has become so popular.

    “Of the many tools Moby offers, this one seems to really motivate them [her students],” reports one teacher. “I use the badges and certificates as a goal from which they can receive class rewards. The best part is that I can reach out to them while at home. That’s always a game-changer...thanks for the video!”

    Moby Contests Are the Secret Sauce That Keeps Kids Coming Back For More!

    Posted by MobyMax on August 16, 2021

    If you ask students why they love MobyMax, don’t get mad if they say it’s because “it’s all fun and games.” That’s exactly what Moby Contests aim to be—and why MobyMax is such a success.

    Moby Contests put the fun in learning by using competitions to keep students motivated. Students compete against their classmates, or classrooms compete against each other. Some contests are simply about a student competing against themselves. No matter which way they’re designed, contests and the games they revolve around make learning so much fun that students may not even realize that’s what they’re doing.

    Just about any kind of contest works. Want to organize a math showdown to get students competing to learn more problems? Let’s start multiplying! Want to focus on getting your students to master the parts of speech? Moby will see your verb and raise you two adjectives.

    MobyMax data will be archived July 31st

    Posted by MobyMax on June 03, 2021

    Summer is rolling in, and we want to remind you that your students' 2020-2021 data will be archived on July 31st. We archive student data each year to make room for a new year of student data.

    After data is archived, you can still access your students’ prior progress history, placement test results, lesson scores, and session times. Game time and badges also stick around! However, the specific problems done will be cleared out.  You'll find a handy “Prior Year” section in many of your Moby reports, like in the “Detailed History” in your Progress tab.


    If your students are in summer school, year-round schools or homeschool, or are simply working in Moby in July, their data will not be archived, so they can continue working uninterrupted.

    If you’d like to keep specific records like contest results or messages from this year, now is the time to save them as PDFs or print them out.

    We hope you stay safe and healthy and enjoy some well-deserved summer sunshine. We look forward to seeing you next school year!
