Kahoot! for schools

How it works

Millions of teachers and students unleash the magic of learning with Kahoot!. Create your own kahoot in minutes or choose from 100+ million ready-to-play games. Engage students virtually with our distance learning features, play in class, and dive into game reports to assess learning.

Create

Creating a learning game of Kahoot! only takes minutes. You can create a kahoot from scratch, use our question bank to mix and match existing questions, edit a template, or customize existing kahoots created by other users.

Host live

Host a kahoot live in class or via a video conferencing tool to connect students virtually! Questions and answers are displayed on a shared screen while students answer on their devices but you can choose to display questions on their devices, too!

Assign a challenge

In student-paced challenges, questions and answers are displayed on players’ screens and you can turn the timer off. Assign them as part of distance learning or for review and formative assessment in class. Now, you can share challenges directly in Microsoft Teams!

Share

Share kahoots with your students to engage them after class, for example, directly in Microsoft Teams. By using groups, you can also share kahoots with your colleagues and organize them around specific topics or subjects.
