Western Lighting originally came across Kahoot! at a training event. Then, a rep from Lutron Electronics – the lighting solutions they deliver training on – used it to survey the audience, as well as test audience understanding of key information. Since Western Lighting deliver about ten training events every single month in the Southern California region, it was a no-brainer to incorporate Kahoot! into their sessions!
A go-to, multi-purpose tool for training
Western Lighting found that Kahoot! improved the dynamics in their presentations, by making it easier to poll attendees. Primarily, they use Kahoot! to survey the audience’s knowledge in the field and also test their comprehension with quizzes, to “drive home key concepts”. Since Western Lighting work with customers and distributors from diverse backgrounds, Kahoot! became an accessible solution for all levels of existing knowledge, and can be easily personalized.
Scott Stevens, Residential Systems Sales at Western Lighting, delivers trainings constantly, and uses Kahoot! to both warm up the audience at the start of his sessions, and as a recap at the end of the day. His favorite element is that it’s simple to understand and navigate, as well as having the competitive element, which can help facilitate head-to-head challenges.
