Kahoot! for business

How it works

From e-learning, to interactive presentations and training, it’s easy to create a kahoot game in minutes. Present live games remotely or in-person, or share self-paced games. Here’s how.

Video

Create in minutes

Creating a kahoot takes minutes – start from scratch or use a pre-designed template. Choose from various question types and add imagery and/or video for deeper engagement.

  • Quiz and type answer questions for engagement
  • Polls and word clouds for audience interaction
  • Puzzle questions for sorting processes
  • Slides to present

Present live

Present a live kahoot on a shared screen – via video conference or in-person. Learners view the questions on the big screen or via screen share, and join with a second device to answer.

  • Engage an audience in any setting
  • Make content stick
  • Connect teams

Assign self-paced challenges

Send kahoot challenges with questions and answers displayed on the learner’s device, to be completed in their own time, from anywhere.

  • Assign to remote teams or those in different time zones
  • Share directly to Microsoft Teams
  • Low bandwidth solution for playing Kahoot!
  • Engage an audience before an event and get feedback after

Share

Enjoy the option to keep content fully private or make public to share best practices.

  • Collaborate on content in a private team space
  • Save time by reusing entire kahoots or individual questions
  • Share kahoots by adding them to our public library

View game reports

View real-time feedback on audience responses during live games, and access a full report afterwards.

  • Spark discussion during questions
  • Target instruction in real time
  • Understand learner performance

What is a Kahoot! host?

A Kahoot! host creates and/or hosts kahoots, assigns challenges for remote training, and tracks results with advanced reports. For example, it can be a trainer or a presenter. You require one license per host. After selecting “Buy now” or “Free trial,” you’ll be taken to the payment page where you can increase the number of licenses. You can also add licenses at any time after signing up. 

Can I share a log-in with a colleague?

No, each license of Kahoot! for business is limited to one user. Sharing a log-in will impact the user experience. Instead, we recommend that you share and co-create content with your colleagues in your safe and secure team space from separate log-ins. To join a team, ask the admin to add you to the team or reach out to us for support.

How many hosts can I invite?

The more team members you invite to create and host kahoots – the merrier! You need one license per host, and you can invite up to 10,000 hosts to your team. In your team space, hosts can share resources at scale by co-creating kahoots and sharing reports. Interested in a subscription for a large team? Contact us at business@kahoot.com to discuss enterprise plans.

Do I have to pay for participants to play kahoot?

No. Players don’t need an account or a business license to join your kahoots.

How many players can join a kahoot?

With Kahoot! Premium and Kahoot! 360 Pro, you can have up to 2,000 simultaneous players in one kahoot.

What's the difference between a "regular" kahoot and an "identified" kahoot?

During a kahoot, players join using nicknames. Nicknames are fun and allow for anonymity in a kahoot. Depending on your plan, up to 2,000 players can join a kahoot using a nickname!

When you host a tournament or want to assign personalized learning, players can join using a nickname but are also identified with email or another parameter. Player identifiers are only visible to the host, allowing to measure training effectiveness over time. Identified kahoots are available with Kahoot! 360 Pro.

Is there a free trial?

We offer a free trial on Kahoot! Pro. You can cancel at any time and your credit card won’t be charged until the trial expires.

Do you offer any discounts for nonprofits or NGOs?

Yes! Registered nonprofits and NGOs can sign up to Standard, Pro, Premium, and Kahoot! 360 Pro with a 50% discount. For more information, visit our nonprofit page.

What are interactive presentation features?

By importing slides and adding interactive questions and polls, you can create and deliver engaging presentations that everyone remembers. Our slide importer supports .ppt (PowerPoint), PDF (you can export Google Slides as PDFs), and .key (Keynote) formats. Interactive presentation features are available with Kahoot! 360 Pro.

How do businesses use Kahoot! to strengthen company culture?

Kahoot! helps teams – including remote and distributed teams – connect, share knowledge, and have fun. Learn more about how you can use Kahoot! to strengthen culture here.

I need Kahoot! for just one event. Is there a separate pricing plan for that?

Yes! See our offering for one-off events here.

Can I use the Basic (free) plan as a business?

With Kahoot! Basic, you can connect remote teams of up to 10 by playing any kahoot you find in our public library. You can create kahoots and assign them as self-paced challenges for up to 10 players. You can only host kahoots that you’ve created with up to 3 players. To increase your player limit and unlock additional features, you’ll need to upgrade to a paid plan.

Can I upgrade to another plan after I sign up?

Yes, you can upgrade any time. Click “upgrade now” at any time or contact us.

Can I use Kahoot! to survey the audience?

Yes, with the polls and word clouds, which are available in Pro, Premium, and Kahoot! 360 Pro,  you can gather participants’ feedback in real time.

How do all these advanced features work?

Check out our YouTube playlist with a series of video tutorials that will show you how you can brand your kahoots, assign challenges, etc.

What is “player identifier”?

Player identifier is a feature that allows you to identify players from kahoot to kahoot. Players are asked to enter their email address (or a custom identifier of your choosing) when they join your kahoot. This identifier shows in reports and allows you to use our “combined report” feature.

If players use our Android or iOS app to join, their identifier is saved after the first time they enter it so they won’t have to enter it again when joining your kahoots in the future.

What is a “tournament” and a "combined report"?

A tournament allows you to combine scores from multiple, identified kahoots into one report. You can quickly compile a multi-kahoot “tournament” leaderboard and podium. You can only combine reports from kahoots that had “player identifier” on, as player identifiers are necessary to collate data.

What is “personalized learning”?

Personalized learning uses proven learning methods such as spacing and testing to help learners retain information and master content. After a live kahoot, our Android or iOS app will encourage players to repeat questions they got wrong. The app will space these repeats out over the course of seven days. Each time, questions they answer incorrectly are asked again until they answer correctly. As the host, you can see from your kahoot’s advanced report leaderboard each player’s progress through personalized learning.
