Kahoot! is a game-based learning platform available at no-cost for educators. Each Kahoot! is a multiple choice quiz that allows instructors to review student knowledge or break from the traditional “chalk and talk” lecture. Kahoots can also be used as a basis for formative assessment. Quizzes can be accessed by students on a tablet, phone, or computer, but are designed in such a way that encourages social learning so that students must frequently look up from their devices. Mu and Paparas (2015) survey non-major students and find that 87.7% of respondents were happy playing Kahoot! while only 53.1% of respondents believed classroom response systems (clickers) helped them better understand material.
If you have never experienced a Kahoot! before, you can visit the “Getting Started” page for a brief overview of getting started as well as a series of “Best Practices” that we have put together from years of using Kahoot! in the classroom.
We have collected a series of Kahoots that we have used in the classroom in a variety of courses. If you are interested in accessing a particular Kahoot, please contact us.
