Kahoot! for schools

Distance learning

We believe that there should be no limits to when and where you can learn. Engage students in learning when your school is out and stay on track with curriculum while instructing online.


Make distance learning awesome

Reach students outside of the classroom

Distance learning tools allow you to stay connected with students when they’re studying from home and instruct online.

Provide flexibility for educators and students

Distance learning doesn’t depend on classroom space, school hours and fixed schedules, which gives educators and students more freedom to plan the process.

Give easier access to learning

Even if your school is closed and students can’t attend classes in person, distance learning allows to continue the process online and keep up with the curriculum.

"Playing Kahoot! with high school students, located hundreds of kilometers apart, renders the distance transparent and fosters learning as an interactive, engaging and entertaining process."
Glenn Cake, high school French teacher, Canada
"With distance learning it’s especially important to keep engagement and attention up as I'm not in the same room with my students. Kahoot! helps me a lot with that."

Extend learning beyond live games and encourage accuracy over speed with student-paced games in challenge mode. 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.
