The final round is conducted via online gaming platform Kahoot, a popular game-based learning platform, in which participants answer a series of timed multiple-choice questions concurrently.
The quizzes are competitive, with the first 20 families to answer every question correctly winning cash prizes or gift coupons, and the registration is completely free. Recent editions of the quiz also allow winners to donate their prize money to a charity working to combat Covid-19 or its impact.
Satvik, a Bengaluru-based student, explains that the Kahoot round requires one to be “correct and fast”, and it is very important for all family members to sit close to each other and collaborate to work out the questions being asked.
For the 15-year-old, the intention is not so much to win as to keep learning more. Stuck at home during lockdown, he is also thrilled to see people from all over the world tuning in for the quiz. “I actually wake up late on most days, but on Sunday, I wake up early, finish all my work and get ready for the quiz.”
