When Christer was invited to host sessions with potential clients at a remote conference, he had a clear vision: “We didn’t want to deliver a traditional video meeting, which can be boring and not interactive. We wanted to have a tool to make meetings more engaging – rather than just delivering a typical monologue,” said Christer.
He set about researching software that could make his sessions as interactive as possible. That’s when he found a familiar name: “I first discovered Kahoot! many years ago at university. I rediscovered it when I saw that they’d launched a lot of new features for businesses and realized that you could actually do a lot more than quizzes, which results in a lot of great stuff,” said Christer.
During the remote conference, Christer hosted four sessions, each with eight to 10 attendees: “Through Kahoot!, we were able to have the whole group actively participate rather than having a kind of passive attendance. Before, we would usually ask questions that would lead to one or two people in the group participating. With Kahoot!, we actually got a response from all of the participants. It gave everyone a voice,” said Christer.
Christer used kahoots to make sure participants remained focused on and engaged with his content throughout the session. “I discovered during the process that we can use Kahoot! to interact in a completely new way – an even better way – than we actually do in a face-to-face or onsite meeting,” said Christer.
