Oslo, Norway (March 23, 2021) – Kahoot!, the global learning platform company, launched a new collaboration with Google Search called Google Practice Problems, an interactive experience that simplifies access to engaging learning tools across the web. Practice Problems is a free feature which allows any Google user to access and play Kahoot! learning games right from the Google Search results page.
In the last year, Kahoot! has hosted more than 1.5 billion participating players on the platform, and has made learning engaging for over 7.5 million teachers and hundreds of millions of students around the world. Kahoot! was selected to become a Google for Education Partner in 2019, with a mission to help teachers inspire curiosity and students to discover and learn together.
“We are excited to join forces with Google to empower educators and students and make learning awesome globally,” said Eilert Hanoa, CEO, Kahoot!. “With this integration, it will be easier than ever for learners of all ages, as well as parents and educators, to discover impactful learning content, whether they’re in a physical classroom, connecting remotely or learning at home independently.”
Interactive learning experiences at users’ fingertips
Through this collaboration, users will be able to access and participate in interactive learning experiences powered by Kahoot! and other learning providers right on the Google Search results page. Now, when users search for math topics, the Google Search results page will include a sample of interactive practice questions from Kahoot!, which can be answered directly from Google Search. The Kahoot! questions are taken from curriculum-aligned learning games on Kahoot! Academy, Kahoot!’s knowledge platform and online teacher community. Users can also click through for the full Kahoot! experience on the Kahoot! platform.
This will allow students (and parents!) to deepen their knowledge of STEM subjects right on Google Search, whether they’re in the classroom or at home, while enabling educators to quickly find the high-quality, verified learning content they need.
