Digital Escape Room Tip for Teachers:

Q: Do my students need Google Accounts to complete a digital escape room?

A: If you have a digital escape room from Danielle Knight, then, no. I do not require a forced copy or anyone to log into a Google Account. All of my digital escape rooms are simply, “share the Google Site link,” and go.

Teachers: PLEASE CHECK YOUR DISTRICT’S FILTER. You will need access to Google Sites,, ScreenCastOMatic video server, Google Forms, Google Slides, and Google Earth. I cannot fix any issues for you. Before purchasing, please check to ensure you will be able to use these sites. ALL firewall issues that occur are on your end in your school/district restrictions. It is your responsibility to ensure the links will work prior to your purchase.

-Feedback left for tech issues are solely on the buyer’s merit and do not reflect the function of the classroom escape room.

This breakout game was tested extensively on a PC laptop, PC desktop, Chromebook, Mac, iPad, and LINUX.
