Our Destined Quest: Students Skype Their Love of Destiny

December 12, 2011 · 5 Comments

"I love Destiny, I get to see the book covers and then find it in the library!" "Destiny Quest is beastly!" — 3rd and 4th Graders “Beastly” may not seem like a compliment, and these may not seem like the average accolades we get from our clients.   But these are the real, extraordinary comments of 3rd and 4th grade students from Solon Community School District in Iowa.

Kids Love Destiny Quest

During the recent American Association of School Librarians conference, two employees from Follett Software met with Destiny® user and school librarian, Kathy Kaldenberg from Solon Community School District, Iowa.  Kathy extended an invitation for Follett Software to Skype (make a video call over the Internet) with her 3rd and 4th graders and discuss Destiny Quest™.

Of course we jumped at the opportunity.

It’s Elementary, Dear Follett

One-by-one each student walked up to the computer and asked their question.


“Where did the name Destiny Quest come from?”
” How many schools around the world have Destiny?"
“How do you get your ideas for Destiny?”

Not only did these savvy Destiny Quest users have questions about their products, they were also brimming with suggestions for new features: 


"Can we make our own Destiny Quest backgrounds?”
“Can we make our own themes for Destiny?”

As the questions continued to broadcast through our Internet Telephony connection, it occurred to us that perhaps we were viewing the future wave of developers at Follett Software.  In any event, we were enlightened and inspired by their candor and enthusiasm for Destiny Quest.

Learn more about their Skype experience with Follett Software by visiting their 4th Grade MC Blog.
