Create & Play Educational Games To Learn New Concepts With Kahoot

You might be a teacher looking to teach new concepts to a bored class suffering from Death by PowerPoint. Or perhaps you’re a trainer at an organization who wants to ensure that new employees are well aware of the corporate culture of the company. While PowerPoint is an excellent presentation tool, it can be hard to teach anything using mere slides. To make your job easy you can opt for Kahoot!

Share & Play Public Kahoots

Share Kahoot

It is worth pointing out that during testing we ran into some issues when we tried to launch Kahoot from mobile browsers using an iPhone and Android device. This is perhaps because Kahoot requires larger screens to work. Kahoot however, worked fine when we used the Android app for Kahoot to play the game we created.
