Study at home

Calling all parents and teachers! Give learners engaging and easy-to-use tools to study at home, independently or in groups, to review content, prepare for tests and engage with peers.


New: the Kahoot! app now empowers students with study modes

The new study modes in the Kahoot! app support students in content review, test prep, and studying at home, individually and with peers:


An easy way to learn a new topic, memorize content or quickly revisit a previous topic, for example, when preparing for a test. Learners flip cards until they feel they’ve remembered all correct answers.


Once students have aced all flashcards, they can move on to Practice mode where they play a kahoot at their own pace until they’ve answered all questions correctly.

Test yourself

When learners have gained confidence, they can test their knowledge in a game against AI players, adding a competitive element. As a reward, learners unlock emotes and collect more of them as they go.

Challenge friends

Students are also able to share a kahoot as a challenge, allowing them to study together with peers; this is particularly relevant in times of distance learning.

Additional ways Kahoot! makes studying at home awesome

Access millions of ready-to-play kahoots for free

With a free Kahoot! account, you can get access to millions of ready-to-play games on any topic, in different languages, for children of all ages. Many of these games were created by teachers to complement their school’s curriculum.

Host a game show in in your living room

Choose from millions of existing learning games by searching for a relevant topic, or alternatively create your own kahoot. Then play a Kahoot! with your family on the big screen in your living room. Who will be the champion?

Compete and connect via video conferencing

Start a live game of Kahoot! with more kids or family members using a free video conferencing tool such as Google Hangouts Meet, Zoom or Skype. In addition to learning impact, playing Kahoot! also helps learners connect with each other when school is out.

Ask children to create their own kahoots, and play them with you

Another powerful way to engage students at home and develop their creative skills is to encourage them to create their own kahoots based on learning content. They can then host them live or share as a challenge. We call this “learners to leaders” pedagogy, which is one of Kahoot!’s core concepts.

4 steps to make learning at home awesome


In the days when your children study at home, decide on a program and specific goals for them to follow over time instead of going with standalone activities.


Starting from dedicating a space for studying at home to tools you choose for your children, put extra emphasis on sparking engagement and curiosity.


When school is out, it’s particularly important to focus on the social aspect of learning. Avoid isolation by facilitating interaction with parents, teachers, and classmates.


Studying at home provides flexibility but also might make it more challenging to focus than a classroom setting. Come up with several ways to motivate children to study, for example, by introducing some fun or rewards.
