We designed our content so that there is never a team leader when playing the game. Content is equally distributed amongst the team, requiring everyone to work together.
Back & Forth features a simple, text message-based interface that allows teams of any size to synchronize the content with one another's device. Best of all, we're built to run as a web application in a mobile browser, so no app download is required.
Our software is open source so we are modifiable to a wide array of educational applications. Whether it's student orientations, event navigation, classroom activities, museums, tours, or conferences, we only require that there are multiple people involved, there is a single mission or common goal, and that it takes place in a single physical location.
We want to make collaborative learning experiences accessible to everyone. Our software is open source and free for anyone to modify and use.
Back & Forth wants to elevate educational experiences by providing an interactive, team-based, and
gamified approach to learning.
Our open source software was born out of the Global Reporting Centre, an organization focused on innovating global journalism.

We start by getting to know you, your chosen location, users, and the intended end goal of your experience. Then, we'll determine the best approach to creating your content.
Need a little help creating content or fine-tuning the software? We help with everything from developing a custom user interface to creating content and hosting the application.
We provide basic training to help you easily and effectively put your experience in the hands of your students. We are also standing by post-launch to offer additional support if needed.
