Improve staff training with knowledge test app WiK

More and more companies are benefitting from using the knowledge test app WiK, developed by Appy Monkey. This app enables knowledge tests to be taken in a timed environment to boost the quality of staff training. To find out more about WiK and why it has become so popular amongst businesses from various industries, read on.


What was the aim of the app?

The brief required Appy Monkey to create an app that would enable staff to complete statutory training wherever they were located. The app required a game-type questioning format which was fun to use by supported the learning process. It also needed to feedback results to users so they could see how they fared. The app would let users know which areas they excelled in and which ones required improvement. If knowledge gaps were identified, companies and their staff could work on filling these. Results can be shared not only via a downloadable fire but through the CMS system in the app too.

What challenges did the brief present?

Few apps come without challenges for developers and WiK was no exception. Appy Monkey needed to deliver a seamless experience for users and ensure that the app was easy to navigate. Access to the test needed to be straightforward, and it needed to be easy for line managers to have the results fed back to them. There was a concern that some team members may fail to engage with the app as they may not have been familiar with the technology. The app also needed to offer a more engaging way of learning.


WiK branding and design

The logo for WiK needed to be both fun and appealing. We chose a colour scheme and fonts that reflected this. Bold colours were used within the app, which were contrasted with the light blue background. The gaming software was used to create WiK so a seamless experience could be provided to players. Our internal user experience specialists built a flow to keep users engaged on WiK.

More about WiK

WiK has proven to be a great success for Appy Monkey, with many users saying they prefer to learn in this way rather than simply sitting down in a room being provided with information by a trainer. Users can simply choose the test they need or want to take when using the app. Once they have completed the test, they can get instant access to their score and feedback. WiK is an acronym for ‘world of inescapable knowledge’, and there are six different categories covered in the app. The app has been designed with repeat use in mind, with the gamification element encouraging users to work hard to reach the top of the leaderboard and stay there. Users can keep up-to-date with their progress within just a few taps on their screen, and daily, monthly and weekly rankings are available. If a user wishes to share a leaderboard with someone and show them how well they are faring, this is simple to do.

What has happened since WiK was launched?

Several new knowledge tests have been added since the launch of WiK. The app is currently being used for training in a range of fields, including fire safety training, infection control and safeguarding.
