Fling the Teacher
Full release of version 3

This is the 'integrated' version that allows you to select a 'standard' or 'SCORM' output. You can use this as a replacement for your current Fling the Teacher. Please uninstall any previous versions before installing this one.

This continues to be a free program for all educators to use - it shows the quality of the programs so you can then purchase the more extensive pay-for programs.

New features:
  • Brand new design with custom icons and a professional new look - Large clear icons on the new start screen together with a consistent set of functional icons across the bottom of the screen. Hopefully a massive improvement that everyone will appreciate.
  • SCORM + standard generation all in one program - One program now supports all options - the key aim so the software is user-friendly and accessible. Enables you to generate standard .swf games to use as you have previously, but also generate .zip files to upload and use on your VLE.
  • Produces fully SCORM-compliant packages which can be uploaded to any SCORM-enabled VLE. It has been created and tested for Moodle but will work with any. Advice for this will be updated very soon, but you now set SCORM to be out of '100' rather than '15' (see updates below for information).
  • Game 'intelligently' adapts to its role - when in a VLE the game is fixed to a one player mode with 10 questions, picks up the player's name from the VLE and delivers the score securely back to the VLE. When in standalone mode the game retains the full one and two player features. You can setup these options via the new generator interface.
  • Ability to produce a separate webpage with a list of the questions in the quiz. Instantly extends the utility of the program. For instance you could put this list of questions on your site before students attempt to complete the game - or it could be a homework task or even a written one. Should help integrate the activity into other parts of your lessons. Easy to print off, upload or copy and paste into an existing page or VLE.

[Release of 3.0]
  • [Update] Final release of version 3 of Fling the Teacher - following extensive testing and development it seems the everyone is happy with the functionality, so the final release is now available. I am confident the recent updates all work, but please do feedback any thoughts or comments.

Fixes & updates:
[3.0 Beta 0.99+]
  • [Fixed] Major issue in previous update - "requested file could not be found" - due to missing fling.html file. This file has now been added in and updated. Apologies for this - it has been fixed as soon as the issue was discovered.
  • [Update] Slight change to the way the system file is called when the finished game is generated - this is to help support the small number of users who have encountered issues generating their .swf files on school networks. If this works as planned it will be rolled out to the other programs too.
  • [Update] Officially signed program - when you install the program you shouldn't see 'unverified publisher' any more - you should see ''

Fixes & updates:
[3.0 Beta 0.8]
  • [Update] Integrated standard and SCORM generation - much more complex than planned, but does now work. As mentioned above, the game intelligently adapts to its role such as displaying the username when logged into a VLE.
  • [Update] Changed the way SCORM score is delivered - previously the game passed the 'actual' score - now it passes a percentage (i.e score / 100). This is a significant change because it means as SCORM is rolled out to other programs you can use the same technique, rather than having to change the SCORM setup each time.
  • [Update] Introduced 3 'look' across the program - consistent functionality across all programs, making them even more usable than before
  • [Fixed] Issues loading games - early (2004) data didn't always load correctly, full backwards compatibility now works,automatically coping with the old data format without further user intervention.
  • [Fixed] Issues loading a game form the game loading screen - annoying bug meant you could load another game correctly if you'd accidentally just loaded the wrong one.
  • [Fixed] Some font issues in the final game - these need to be checked carefully before the final release.
