At Alludo, we understand the value of teachers and staff in a student’s life. That’s why we’re hosting our annual “March Wellness!” Every weekday during the month of March we will raffle off amazing giveaways!
Meet Jamie, our new customer success manager!
West coast hockey and lacrosse player. Master STEAMer. Teacher who uses technology to individualize learning.
Hi, Alludo community! My name is Jamie Bridgman. I grew up in the LA area playing hockey and lacrosse. I earned my B.S. in Biology from UCSB and my M.Ed. in STEAM Curriculum and Instruction from Concordia University - Portland. I moved to New Orleans and started teaching elementary school science. When I transitioned to teaching middle school and high school science, I started integrating technology into my classroom. Technology allowed me to individualize student learning and create engaging tailored science lessons.
Alludo is a natural fit for me because its unique platform is engaging, individualized, and can be accessed at one's convenience. I look forward to supporting teachers and district success in my role at Alludo, and I look forward to meeting you all!
The Alludo Content Catalog now features student content
Engage students with self-paced, online learning for grades 3-12, curated by top educators focused on student outcomes! Roll out off-the-shelf e-learning content on technology and devices, SEL, counseling, career readiness, and school health and wellness in minutes.
You can now subscribe to activities for easier content management! Each time the author of the content you subscribed to makes an update, you receive a notification of the update and have an opportunity to accept or decline the update. Set your activities to auto-update, and your activities are automagically kept up to date!
Admins, A few months ago we rolled out Groups to allow you to segment people into customer-defined groups rather than limiting grouping people to a single school site. Now we’ve taken it a step further and added Automatic Assignment, so you can automatically assign people into groups based on either their domain address or via game invitation. This should save you time!
To start using, either specify the domain when defining a Group for domain-based assignment or specify the Group you want to assign when creating the game invitation.
Group Automatic Assignment via domain
Group Automatic Assignment via game invitation
Admins, Alludo now supports importing rosters of people and school sites as defined by the One Roster 1.2 open standard. This means you can quickly import people you wish to grant access to Alludo and automatically assign them to the appropriate school site.

Shareable Activities, Missions, Levels
Admins, you can now share links to specific activities, missions, and levels in your marketing emails to players, so they get to the right spot in an instant. This should decrease any unnecessary back and forth between you and the players and help you increase engagement!
Just click the share link icon in Activities, Missions, or Levels in the Game Builder to get started!
Other UX Enhancements
Admins, Gamebuilders, and Achievement Reviewers, We’ve worked on a number of improvements that you’ve been asking for to make game building and administration easier and provide you and your learners with a better experience.
Here they are…
Editor size consistency – The editor for activity descriptions, resources, and custom text now has a consistent editor size – even when editing HTML. Edit an activity to start using!
Clearer default feedback responses – This allows reviewers to select default approval or pause responses more quickly. Review an achievement to start using!
Time in Report Exports is now presented in HH:MI format – Admins can now quickly determine the amount of hours and minutes players have spent completing activities. Export a report to either Google Sheets or to a CSV to begin seeing this data!
Evidence Type Formatting – Admins can now apply formatting to evidence type descriptions, so you can better describe the evidence requirements for players. Edit an evidence type to start using!
Evidence Type Requirements Prompt – Learners are now prompted to complete all evidence type requirements when an admin creates an activity that requires all evidence types be completed. This helps learners have clarity on what’s expected of them and saves admins time of needing to clarify and learners’ time having to resubmit! To start using, admins will require necessary evidence types and learners will see what’s required of them!
Top Weekly Schools and Top Schools “PPL” Label – The Top Weekly Schools and Top Schools leaderboards have always been measured on a per capita basis so that large schools can be measured against small schools. We’ve labeled this with “PPL” (Points Per Learner) to make this clear and easy to understand! Look at the leaderboard for a game to start using!
