About Kahoot!

Kahoot! is a learning management system (LMS), which helps schools and higher education institutions create games, interact with students via online sessions, streamline remote learning processes and track class progress via formative assessments. Professionals can share reports with teachers or administrators and use quizzes or puzzles to improve class engagement. Kahoot! allows organizations to host live games with various question types such as multiple-choice, true/false, images or short answers. Supervisors can gain visibility into the number of players or questions, view students' performance and generate reports in real-time to identify difficult questions. Additionally, higher education institutions can engage with students via video conferences and review learning content to manage exam preparation. Kahoot! enables schools to request students' feedback via polls during games and adjust sessions' time according to requirements. The product is available for free and on monthly or annual subscriptions and support is extended via video tutorials, live chat, documentation and other online measures.

Students love Kahoot! Teachers love Kahoot!

Creating engaging and exciting assessments for students so that I can check for understanding on key concepts.

Pros

Kahoot is a brilliant creation! If you teach in a one-to-one setting or have access to devices, you need to consider using Kahoot right away! Basically, it's a student assessment tool, but you it's a game-like setting, which makes it fun for the students. Here's why I love it:
- First off, students love playing it! The friendly competition is engaging and they are always excited to share what they know in this game.
- It's so easy to set up for teachers. You can create your own Kahoot question sets in a matter of minutes. In maybe 10 minutes you can create a fun, 10-20 question quiz game for your kids. Quick and easy!
- You have the ability to obtain data on your kids! After the Kahoot, you know what your students do or don't know. And then you can use this data to reteach concepts they're struggling with.
- They offer an online library where you can use other question sets created by other teachers. That's extremely handy! Just review what's been created beforehand to make sure it's appropriate for you kids.
- It's always been reliable and worked. I can't say the same for other edtech tools that I consistently use. Kahoot's website just always works!
- They recently offered a team mode which challenges students to collaborate on quizzes. This is a cool update, and I expect to see Kahoot to continue to be cutting edge with their product.
- It's simple to get students "logged in." All that's required is for them to type in a link, enter a number, and add name.

Cons

I am a big fan of Kahoot, so I have nothing to complain about. I would just recommend users to use it wisely. If you want extremely reliable data with little error, you may want to choose another platform. Kahoot encourages students to think and answer quickly, and they may lead them to occasionally select the wrong answer by accident or because of the time feature. You obviously wouldn't use this for a unit test. Similarly, you probably wouldn't use this to pinpoint gaps for individual students. But it is helpful in getting a big picture of gaps of knowledge or trends, if that makes sense. This is also isn't the best tool for tracking data over a long period of time - this is a tool for quick assessments or check-ups. That's not a complaint about Kahoot, just an encouragement for you to use it appropriately!

Elevate Your Training

Overall happy with the options available in kahoot!

Pros

I love the ability to use kahoot to elevate training for staff. It ensures that we can test staff on their knowledge through a quiz format, but have it fun through the scoring system

Cons

Adapting from being able to use the application for free, and now only being able to have 3 users play for free.

After years of asking, Kahoot still doesn't "talk" to google classroom

Kahoot is a great way to build and even ensure engagement. Kahoot games are quite plainly a lot of fun both for hosts and players. Its a great way to gamify training or a classroom.

So I still love Kahoot and I use it often but I could love it more if there were a way to align it with google classroom and if there was an efficient way to track performance.

Pros

I still love Kahoot despite missing features that would make me love it more. Kahoot is so easy to use and a great way to build engagement. There are so many games to choose from and if somethings not quite right, games can be very easily edited or even created. Games are so fun to play and even fun to host. Kahoot makes gamification easy for fun, interactive learning for all ages.

Cons

What kahoot is missing, which keeps me from loving it even more, is a way to track performance via google classroom or other educational management systems. Kahoot can be launched with google classroom, but then the data from the games isn't sent back to google classroom. So classroom talks to Kahoot, but for whatever reason Kahoot doesn't talk back to google. I reached out to Kahoot many times about this and I get the same answer that this is not a feature they are interested in providing. What a shame.

What also happens often is players use hurtful and offensive and inappropriate nicknames. This is quite common in schools but can also happen in the workplace. As far as I know, there is no way to track this. Kahoot offers a friendly nickname generator to avoid this, but then there is no way to track performance. So essentially Kahoot which could be so powerful in assessment and training, is simply reduced to a really fun game or just basic enreichment. Again...What a shame.

Recommended for teachers, but be cautious

Pros

Great interactive tool at have at your disposal for creating an engaging learning environment

Cons

My main issue with Kahoot is that there seems to be a lack of moderation over user-submitted content. Often when searching for a Kahoot on a specific topics, for example, grammar, I would see options that had incorrect/incomplete information, or just weren't of a high enough standard that I would be happy to use in my classroom (typos, spelling errors, etc). For this reason, I had to spend a lot of time reviewing all of the content in detail before I was satisfied it was usable.

Fun Team Building

Pros

We have been using Kahoot for quite some time. It is a great way to get the team going and seeing just how much they know. It is also great to see the friendly gaming come out. What a great team building software this is. Lots of laughs and learning with this platform!

Cons

We had a bit of trouble with the number of people who could join. We made the best of this mishap and created teams. There was still lots of fun to be had.
