Key features for creating and teaching interactive lessons

Engage students with various question types

Tailor kahoot dynamics to your lesson’s goals, get students focused and activate different ways of thinking by combining several question types. In addition to quiz questions, you can add puzzles to test accuracy, questions where the answer is typed to assess deeper understanding, and polls to collect opinions or conduct a quick pulse-check.

Save time by importing slides from existing presentations

Have a good presentation that is a perfect fit for your next lesson? With Kahoot! Premium+, you can easily import slides created in PowerPoint, Keynote, Google Slides, or from a PDF file straight into your kahoots and add interactive questions between slides.

Combine interactive questions with slides

Decide on the optimal mix of slides and interactive kahoot questions depending on the topic, goals of your lesson, format of instruction, complexity of content, and your students’ learning needs.

Control lesson dynamics

There are numerous features allowing you to control lesson dynamics depending on the goals, for example, controlling the volume when explaining a complex topic. Enabling double points in questions will add extra motivation. Image reveal within questions will get students extra focused and build anticipation.
