You'll meet Tambika when you learn to glide. She'll guide you on your first visit to Glideon!
Hi! My name is Tambika and I'm here to guide you first-timers around Lightglider Academy! Remember playing the tutorial? In it, you used your mouse or tapped the screen to glide around. In Lightglider Academy, it's no different!
But why are you here? You were chosen as a Lightglider and transported here to help us RESPECT, RESCUE, and RESTORE. It's a good thing you got here because we need all the help we can get! Although the Academy is safe here, the land outside of the Academy is full of danger! Scary Machines roam the land, kidnapping the native creatures called the Gliddles and spreading blight all over the land.
But you can help!
By battling these Machines and looking for those lost, we can RESCUE the kidnapped Gliddles and RESTORE the land!
While you go on missions, watch videos, and play games, you will be earning light! As you earn more light, you level up, and you will have more access to rewards and challenges here in Lightglider Academy. Have fun hanging out with friends, playing games, and exploring!
Hey Lightglider! I'm Bryce! To find your first mission, head to Mission Control in Lightglider Academy. I'll be there to cheer you on! You'll then head into the Zoom Tube, which transports you into the Yonders, the land outside of the Academy. Find the mission in the Yonders to begin!
As Tambika said, our goal is to rescue the Gliddles that are trapped in the Yonders by the Machines. To do so, your armor is equipped with automatic defenses, which allow you to battle the Machines you find on your missions!
Be sure to pick up Gliddles where you can! Their powers help battle the Machines as well! Each Gliddle has a different power to help you!
Hola! I’m Santiago. I am excited that you have joined us at Lightgliders! Tambika runs the Academy these days, and she has asked me to welcome you and tell you about it.
Soooooooo.....here are a few things you need to know!
There's lots to explore in Lightglider Academy! There are many objects around the Academy you can click on to discover games and videos to play!
Click on another Lightglider to add them as a friend! You can have as many friends as you want.
Check out the calendar on the Lightgliders website and be on the lookout for daily alerts when you log in to discover community events! They are held daily and the moderators love haning out with you!
I hope you find as much joy being a part of this community as I do!
Hi friend! I’m Nisha. Thank you for being here. You have joined a large community of unique and special people. And you will make a major impact as a Lightglider. One way you do this is by building and decorating a treehouse where rescued Gliddles can live. Just outside the Academy campus are beautiful trees. Go there by clicking on your map and clicking Treehouse. You can decorate your very own treehouse with decorations you've bought. To decorate, drag and drop decorations from your inventory. You can purchase more decorations at Tree Mart in Lightglider Academy. Click on the map to find Tree Mart. Watch the tutorial below to learn more.
Once you've finished decorating your treehouse, you can check out other Lightgliders' treehouses! Just click on them and select "View Treehouse." Then you can see how they decorated their treehouses and maybe get inspired for yours! You can also visit your friends list to view their treehouses!
I can't wait to see what you do with the treehouse you've been given to steward! The Gliddles are going to love it!
Well, hello there, new Lightglider! I'm Tova and I am here to tell you that YOU were uniquely MADE TO SHINE.
You are unique. That means that there is no one like you!
You were made. That means that you were not an accident!
You can shine. That means that you can positively impact others through you words and actions!
In honor of being unique, I want to tell you that you can change your outfits in Lightgliders at a moment's notice. If you are in the Academy just click on your profile picture to change outfits, hats, gliders, and even your look.
Also, if you ever receive a mystery code, you'll want to enter it into your Academy profile to get a helpful prize. You may want to ask your parent or group leader if any new mystery codes have been sent out this week. They'll find them in our weekly emails. Also, for every month that you're a Lightglider, you receive a special glider! Ask your parent or group leader for the code that comes in the monthly milestone emails!
In Glider Gear you can buy new outfits and gift new items to friends. As you earn light and collect gold on your missions and adventures, you will be able to buy the outfits you want. You can also play games and watch videos outside of the Academy to earn light and level up! Marlon will talk about that later!
Sometimes moderators will give out free gear at parties, which is always fun!
Every Lightglider has a very special name. Have you checked out the leaderboards for any games? There you can see the names of the players who have scored the highest in those games!
Remember, you were made to shine. The way we do that in Lightglider is by pursuing three goals - RESPECT, RESCUE, and RESTORE. Watch these video to learn ways to pursue each one in Glideon.
I can't wait for you to meet Marlon! He will share the difference between being in Lightgliders and being in Glideon!
Ok, New Lightglider! It’s time to put it all together. You may have noticed that all of these messages have been about what you will do in Lightglider Academy in the land of Glideon.
All of this reflection can make you wonder: how did Lightglider Academy come to be? My name is Marlon and I'll tell you! The Academy was created by the first Lightglider, a man named Professor Christopher Watts. Professor Watts realized there were too many kidnapped Gliddles and too much blight for him to rescue and restore all by himself, so he decided to start the Academy and train up Lightgliders to help him out. We seven Lightglider leaders, Bryce, Tambika, Kwan, Santiago, Nisha, Tova, and I, were among the first ones trained! After Lightglider Academy was established, Professor Watts left for a secret mission but never returned. It's up to us to find him and bring him home!
In Lightgliders you will also encounter the Far Greater Story. This is the story of God's love for you revealed in the Bible. God's love is something to know, grow in, and show each and every day.
We want you to know this story, to talk about it with your family and friends, and to understand how it affects your life and decisions. That is why there is a new these and Bible verse each week to learn about and discuss.
As you explore all the different types of content - the Games, the Sparks, the Prayers, the Sticker Pages, and the fun LGTV videos - you will earn light and level up! See Glider Gear below? You'll notice that the higher level you reach, the more gear you'll have access to!
Remember Lightglider: You were made to shine! You unique gifts and abilities were given to you by God for a reason. As you play, we hope you come to KNOW, GROW in, and SHOW God's love each and every day! As you do this, you will shine!
That's all we have to teach you for now. Glide on!
