The outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus) has caused many educational institutions to close temporarily and rely on distance learning. To help educators conduct distance learning, we’re providing schools and higher education institutions affected by the coronavirus with free access to Kahoot! Premium until they reopen.

Invite other teachers free of charge

With Kahoot! Premium, educators can collaborate with each other outside of school walls. Once you sign up, you can add as many teachers as you need for free. Please disregard any message that displays a price. You will not be charged.

How to invite more teachers

Team admins can invite other teachers manually or by sharing a universal license key, which they can find in their settings. Read our FAQ for more details.

Frequently asked questions

How is Premium different from a free Kahoot! subscription?

Kahoot! Premium is our most advanced plan for schools. It allows educators to collaborate on learning content, share kahoots in a school’s team space, use all our advanced question types (polls, puzzles, word clouds, and open-ended questions) and slides, access detailed reports and easily share them for formative assessment.

How long will the free subscription last?

We’ll provide you with free access to Kahoot! Premium until the end of this school year.

There are several teachers in my school who are interested in this offer. What do we do?

We recommend you to decide which of you will function as the Kahoot! admin – and that person should be the one claiming the offer, and then invite others. For example, it can be someone from the IT department of your school. As an admin, you will be able to decide how many licenses are needed for your school/department/district, add them to your subscription for free and invite other teachers.

I don’t have a Kahoot! account yet. What do I do?

Click here to start your sign up process. You’ll be asked to create an account before you can claim the offer.

How do I invite other teachers?

You can either invite other teachers manually, or use a universal license key if you’re adding many at the same time. Download our PDF guide for more detailed instructions on each of these methods.

Do I have to pay for other teachers I invite?

No. You can add as many teachers free of charge as you need. When inviting them, you might come across a pop up which asks you to confirm a price. Please disregard this message, as you are not providing any billing information to us, and you are not tying yourself to purchase later when this free subscription expires.

I already have a Pro subscription, can I get a refund and get this new plan?

Contact us and we’ll get you set up. We won’t refund your Pro subscription but the upgrade to Premium will be free of charge.

What happens when the trial is over?

Unless you provide billing info before the trial ends, your account will return to free access. Personal kahoots can still be used, though you won’t be able to edit them if they contain premium features. Team kahoots won’t be deleted, though you won’t have access to the team space.
