How does Kahoot! work?

Make learning fun, inclusive and engaging in all contexts


Create a fun learning game in minutes – we call these ‘kahoots’. You can make a series of multiple choice questions. The format and number of questions are entirely up to you. Add videos, images and diagrams to your questions to amplify engagement.

What is Kahoot! - Create your own kahoots


Kahoots are best played in a group setting, for example, a classroom. Players answer the questions on their own devices, while games are displayed on a shared screen to unite the lesson. It creates a ‘campfire moment’ encouraging players to look up and celebrate together. Besides creating your own kahoots, you can search among millions of existing games.

Social learning promotes discussion and pedagogical impact, whether players are in the same room or on the other side of the globe. After a game, encourage players to create and share their own kahoots to deepen understanding, mastery and purpose, as well as engage in peer-led discussions. When a learner becomes a leader, that’s a true magic moment!
