Now a Kahoot! Academy Verified creator, Minna has grown a global community of educators and learners. Her kahoots have been played by over 2 million participants (non-unique) and counting, across her Kahoot! profile for English grammar and vocabulary and her profile for beginner Finnish and English language learners.
Minna has also begun monetizing her Kahoot! courses on Kahoot! marketplace, offering them for educators and learners of all ages looking for in-depth and engaging language learning experiences.
As Minna said, “With Kahoot!, I think the sky’s the limit, really. It really has helped me to use my creativity. And I think it has made me more creative, because the more you learn about how to make engaging and fun games, the more you do it, the more ideas you get. You never stop learning!”
Minna has been bringing joy to learning with Kahoot! for 9 years, beginning not long after Kahoot! launched in 2013. When Kahoot! Academy was announced in 2021, Minna knew right away that she wanted to be part of it. She immediately sent in her application and joined Kahoot! Academy as a Verified creator!
