Kahoot! for schools

Distance and hybrid learning

We believe that there should be no limits to when and where you can learn. Engage students in class, remotely or in a hybrid learning environment, and easily assess learning progress.

Engage students outside of the classroom

Kahoot!’s distance learning tools allow you to connect with students when they’re studying from home and increase participation.

Do pulse-checks and assess learning

From quick pulse checks to formative assessment, Kahoot! can help you instantly capture actionable insights and target instruction in any learning environment.

Power up independent study

From student-paced game modes to game creation projects, Kahoot! powers up independent study and help learners become leaders.

"Kahoot! has been really helpful for me to target instruction and let my students study at their own pace when our university transitioned to distance learning."
Olga Filippova, Senior lecturer, University of Auckland
"Kahoot! is a fantastic way to engage every single student - even remotely. Video conference fatigue is real but Kahoot! solves this problem."
Gustavo Lovato, AP Spanish and literature teacher at Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School

How Kahoot! can help you connect with students in any learning environment

Host kahoots live over video conferencing

Play a live game of Kahoot! with students joining from home. Share your screen with an online video conferencing tool (Zoom, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, Skype and others) to facilitate this. If your students only have one device at home, you can choose to display questions and answers on their devices in live kahoots.

Assign student-paced games that can be played anywhere

Extend learning beyond live games and encourage accuracy over speed with student-paced games in challenge mode. You can even turn off the timer if you’d like! Students play at home at their own pace with questions and answers on their screens, while a teacher sees their progress in real time. Many teachers find this way to play Kahoot! helpful for content review, exam prep, and homework assignments.

Assess learning, from pulse-checks to formative assessment

Run pulse-checks with quiz, polls and other questions to collect valuable student feedback. For example, pre-assess knowledge, or find out how students are feeling in general. Kahoot!’s visual reports on live games and challenges will help you with formative assessment: see how the class performed, identify difficult questions that need followup, and reinforce learning.
