Today we released a new version of our Categories gadget, and we’re pretty excited about it here at Versal HQ. Categories has always been one of our favorite exercises, because even in its text-based simplicity it was an engaging and interactive learning tool.

We’ve added the power of visual learning to Categories. Add images as categories or cards, instantly transforming your categorization exercise to a colorful and dynamic experience that’s valuable for audiences of all ages – even for international learnings.

Another great benefit of Categories 2.0? The data from your learners is now included in our learner assessment report, which means you can track learner results, create learner scores for Categories tests, and generate reports. You’ll see Categories testing data along with Quiz data and Survey data. Categories is now another great assessment tool to help your learners achieve their goals!

As humans, we break things down into categories. It’s the way our brains work – scientists at MIT even identified the area of the brain responsible for categorization late last year.  The new Categories 2.0 adds an extra level of engagement and cognition for your learners. Try it today!
