Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to discuss the technical aspects of using the Edventure Builder platform to create UC San Diego’s scalable, interactive, online library orientation activity, which was designed for the university’s new First Year Experience program.
Design/methodology/approach: This paper examines a case study using a successive approximation model for the build process of a mobile library scavenger hunt.
Findings: The Edventure Builder software is intuitive, scalable and provides a variety of options to users, including flexibility in question format, a WYSIWYG interface, and branching logic. The main limitation is that analytics is still in beta testing and users must request that data be sent in an Excel spreadsheet via email.
Originality/value: This paper is of interest to information professionals who would like to create a mobile library orientation activity using the Edventure Builder platform.
