Editors' Review

+
Outstanding content and a straightforward interface make Seterra an oddly compelling geography-quiz program. You can test your knowledge of world cities, capital cities, countries, geographical features, and flags. Most quiz types are broken out by region, such as Australia and Northern Africa. The game gives you a number of chances to guess, color-coding the correct answer by how many times you picked wrong. After three wrong guesses, the correct answer lights up green; when you click it, it turns red. This creates an easy visual representation of which areas you need to study more. The high-score tables provide a subtle but effective spur to learn. We had only two small quibbles: we would have liked a desktop icon option, and sometimes the place names overlap and obscure nearby location dots. Anyone interested in learning more about our world, especially students, can get sucked into Seterra's spell.

"A great way to learn about our world."

 |  Version: Seterra 3.03

Pros

This a simple program with no frills. You can repeat your answers several times before they give it to you. It scores your results and lets you play against it to improve
your score.

Cons

I haven't found any.

Summary

I really like this program. It is great for home schooled children. I am an older adult and I just like it to test my knowledge and learn more about the world and where everything is. To me it is like a game.

"Excellent educational tool: smart and fun!"

August 02, 2009  |  By yanksguyinco

 |  Version: Seterra 3.03

Pros

Easy and fun to use. Free, free, free! Kids love it.

Cons

None whatsoever.

Summary

Students love Seterra! By the end of the school year nearly all 140+ of my students could correctly find and name every country in the world on a blank map, something they all took great pride in. They thought Seterra was great fun and had a blast racing to finish a quiz. The best learning is when something is fun, and this fits the bill. I can't say it enough; Kids and adults love Seterra! Thanks so much Ms. Wartoft for this great learning game. Be sure to visit her site for other great freeware games and learning tools.

"I LOVE THIS GAME! I am a geography snob,lol, 'cuz of it"

February 06, 2009  |  By bles217

 |  Version: Seterra 3.03

Pros

It teaches you all the continents, countries, & capitals! Then it quizzes you so you can track your progress.

Cons

It doesn't teach landmarks or other famous cities worth noting about a country.

Summary

I have learned all the countries & capitals of the world! I love knowing where a certain place or capital is when I hear about it in the news. You can go at your own pace & learn a continenet at a time or the whole world if you want. Plus, I go back to freshen up my skills constantly. It's a fun game I like to play regularly (like other computer games) yet I feel it's more relevant & beneficial than solitaire :)
