KoKo Credits

Introducing KoKo Credits


KoKo Credits is a virtual credit system in KooBits. It can be used to exchange for rewards, e.g. unlocking the latest StoryMath chapters, unlocking past stickers in album, and unlocking any brain games. To check for the KoKo Credits earned and spent recently, go to Dashboard and click on the KoKo credit icon. There, you'll see the details of all your credits on a monthly or quarterly basis based on the selected period in the drop down bar.




Difference between KoKo Credits and Challenge Points


Challenge Points (CPs) are cumulative. It is a reward system that affects the level of your ranking in leaderboards. CPs can only be earned by completing questions in the Daily Challenge segment. For example: Any challenge points obtained are directly added to your overall points, and this affects your ranking in various leaderboards (e.g. Hero of the Day, Top Brain etc.) On the other hand, KoKo Credits are consumable. It is a reward system that aims to improve your learning experience. For example: KoKo Credits earned can be spent on unlocking premium features, such as StoryMath chapters, which enables the learning of mathematics through comics.

KooClass

What is KooClass?


KooClass is a series of interactive virtual classes to help kids, aged 6-12 years, learn about real-world applications of math topics taught in school.

With KooClass, kids can relate Math to their every-day life, and see examples of how to apply it to the world around them.

• Learn about time by creating a birthday party invite
• Learn about fractions by planning & shopping for a picnic with friends
• Learn about mass by measuring ingredients to bake a cake.
• Learn about lines and shapes by exploring famous monuments around the world.
• Learn about symmetry by designing a quilt

KooClass can also be accessed anytime, anywhere, on-demand, on your schedule.




How long is the duration for each KooClass?


Each KooClass is about 40 mins long, and covers a portion of a math topic (e.g. Fractions, Time etc). In each class, kids watch an educational / documentary-style video, get hands-on practice with an interactive segment (questions, assignments or activities for kids to do) and unlock achievements after completing the class.




How many classes are there in KooClass?


In total, we have 100+ classes, with over 90 hours of educational lessons for kids to be meaningfully engaged with. New classes will be added every week.




How are KooClass classes taught?


Classes are arranged by topics, and each topic has 5-6 classes. The topics are agnostic of a child's current school grade level, which means that if they get interested in a particular topic, they could end up doing all the classes in that topic, and even learn more than what’s required for school.

KooClass is taught by friendly and lovable characters - a fresh way to learn compared to teacher-led zoom classes.

The classes also serve to help kids open their minds to absorb more information, and in this way they retain more knowledge than even in the classroom. 70% retention of knowledge, compared to just 30% in the classroom.




Which levels are KooClass suitable for?


KooClass is suitable for children from ages 6-12, covering all primary levels. You can find the recommended age-ranges for each lesson on the thumbnails as shown in the image below. Please note that the age-ranges are only a recommendation. The goal of KooClass is to enrich kids' learning beyond the standard school curriculum and foster a genuine interest in learning. Hence, we encourage kids to pick and learn from whichever KooClass sounds most interesting to them.




How can I get KooClass?


KooClass is available for Premium Plan users and can be found on the homepage of the student portal. If you are a Standard Plan or School Plan subscriber, you may wish to upgrade to Premium to access KooClass. Simply visit our pricing page (www.koobits.com/plans).




I am an existing Premium user. Do I get KooClass automatically?


Yes! Existing Premium Plan users only need to login to member.koobits.com and this feature will be available.




My child is a School Plan user and I want to upgrade to Premium (and yet still be able to access features in school plan). Can I do so?


Existing School Plan users have the option to upgrade to Premium Plan by paying an upgrade fee. Simply click on 'Upgrade School to Premium' on our plans page under School Plan.

Once upgrade is complete, your child will have the option to toggle between the school and premium account after logging in to member.koobits.com.




My child is a Premium Plan user. When we login, we do not see the KooClass feature. Why is it so?


Your child could be logging in at https://problemsums.koobits.com/. Please log at member.koobits.com.




My child is a Premium Plan user and we are using the new portal (member.koobits.com). However, I can't access to parent assignment feature in the new portal. Why is it so?


We are working hard to include the parent assignment feature in the new portal in the next 1-2 months.

If you are an Android phone user, you can download the KooBits Parent App and access the parent assignment feature. Read more on how to do so here.

However, if you are an iOS user, as the update of our KooBits Parent App is currently under review, you will need to login at https://problemsums.koobits.com/ to access to the parent assignment feature.




I do not have enough KoKo credits to unlock the KooClass lessons
