Kahoot!

When teaching fifth grade, students enjoyed reviewing content covered in class by playing classic Kahoot games. As the site has evolved, teachers are now able to present lessons within Kahoot and use the same platform to review the content presented. Students do not have to changes sites mid-lesson. It is a game-changer.

Pros

Kahoot!

  • Useful for either, in-person or online classes: it can work from a projector or screen in in-person classes, or by sharing the screen in online classes.
  • Excellent to get an idea of the understanding or knowledge level of a group of people: depending on the intention of the game, the professor or person in charge of it can make and change the questions to address certain points.
  • Easy to use for both professors and students: Kahoot is intuitive, simple, and fun to use.
  • Interactive and engaging: Kahoot is a game designed to work as a tool for professors, which makes it perfect to use with students.

  • It just works. Biggest complaint with our previous solution is that it took 10 minutes to connect to a meeting. Now, our users connect instantaneously.
  • Dashboard is fantasitic. Can access real time information to troubleshoot calls.
  • Admin ports offers quite a bit of information. Like that it's a one stop shop to access everything I need to administer the site, users, run reports and access the dashboard.
  • Tickets get resolved quickly.
  • Feature requests are realized quickly.

Cons

Kahoot!

  • It requires access to technology (students smartphones, iPads, etc.)
  • It would be easier if we could program the Kahoot ID into our presentations ahead of time. You have to activate it right before you start using it so there is always a moment's delay as we get organized before the students access it.
  • If you use it often enough you'll hear the music that plays during the game in your head even outside of the classroom.

Zoom

  • Using it for recording practice interviews and playing back for critiquing, is awkward and kludgy at best. The steps are: Record the session, then END THE MEETING so that Zoom can save the recording. Then get the recording ready to play, then have the client log in AGAIN, you log in AGAIN, share the screen, play the recording.
  • Zoom should make it possible to have the interviewer, especially if the practice interview is recorded, to make themselves SMALL throughout the whole recording so that *the candidate* is the focus on the screen. Neither the Speaker view or the Gallery view does this.
  • There should be a separate timer on Zoom for the recording portion of the screen. I realize I can do this myself manually, but why can’t Zoom do it for me?
  • Zoom needs to have a way to get feedback like this. I could not find a way to give them this feedback on their product, on their site or in the dashboard. All we get is a database that is tone deaf. Nowhere could I find any "Feedback? Click here." Not good.
  • If by these suggestions I’m asking for more functionality, I understand an increased cost. But small companies like mine cannot pay hundreds of dollars a month - please have a very functional version that small firms can still afford. Thank you.

We're sticking with Zoom for the foreseeable future--given its compelling feature set, ease of use, and advanced technology, there's just no other competition to be excited about. Plus it's a Gartner-recognized industry leader, so it's a rather easy choice.

I give this a rating of 6.5 because we encountered technical glitches (temporary) where our screens were stuck due to an issue with the creator's app. The game went on but the points and rankings were scattered all over the place. It took a good number of questions for the points and rankings to come back. Again, there is the need of both laptop and mobile and questions and answers, which is a headache.

Everything is easy to understand and use, new users need no training. On the flipside there are minor annoyances such as calendar export being cumbersome (need re-auth every time) and also not having recordings shared within a team or forcing people to name them.

There have been less than a handful of outages during our two years with Zoom, and whenever there was one, an email informing us of the outage went out immediately, and they had the issue resolved shortly thereafter.

Zoom has among the best performance of any video conference platform, as I've mentioned several times. Besides that, their Chat platform works great, and their back end always runs smooth. It's unfortunate that reporting can now only be done by one month at a time, but nonetheless, it only takes a second to run any kind of Zoom report, whether it's an attendee report, Poll results, a user report, a list of meetings from the past month, etc.

Sizeable community of teachers using this tool means you can typically search and find effective practices and pitfalls to avoid. Documentation and guides from Kahoot! are also solid, but you are likely to find a fellow teacher in your own building or office suite that has experience and is willing to come alongside as you begin using the tool. This for me is a significant selling point regarding support.

As I've written before, Zoom makes us feel like we matter and that we're a client rather than a customer. They want us to succeed and they put in the time to make sure that we do. I feel like they're more of a business partner rather than simply a vendor or supplier. They spent a lot of time onboarding with us, giving us demos, helping us get set up, and then giving us follow-up to be sure it's going well.

If you receive any pushback from higher ups, point to any of the various positive reviews like this one. Or show Zoom's excellent Gartner report, or articles describing Zoom's partnership with Sequoia capital. It's not difficult to show how Zoom is a trustworthy industry leader with best-in-class technology.

Alternatives Considered

Kahoot!

Blue Canoe includes games to provide users more means to learn the language in a different way. This program marks each day and sets goals for users to improve participation and engagements. However, it does not have an interface that students and teachers can both work together for the same game. Kahoot! provides more features for educators and all users to increase interaction in class and at home. Moreover, there is no cost to use Kahoot! for the basic plan which covers most features.

Zoom

All of the above three have their own advantages and disadvantages. For example, Teams has a lot of advantages like a special channel for communication, but does not allow us to see who removed us or muted us. However, it does have the attendee and presenter feature. Another thing is it consumes a lot of internet. Google Meet has an instant meet option and several other factors, but we still felt other than the security issue Zoom was enough for us.

Because the Basic licenses are completely free, and because it's very easy to configure and install Zoom, and because anyone can join Zoom from a link without needing an account, scaling is a Breeze. There are absolutely no roadblocks. My company keeps adding more Zoom Pro license every week since it's so in demand. We were able to convert users from several different platforms onto Zoom with no trouble at all.

Return on Investment

Kahoot!

  • Kahoot! has changed the definition of learning from a tedious task to a fun and friendly competition.
  • Students and staff have shown a higher rate of retention when we use Kahoot! regularly with the content, we want them to know and retain.
  • The variety of question types, music, and uses of Kahoot! help to keep the "same ole same ole" attitude by users at bay.
Laura Steinbrink | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoom

  • Zoom has really helped our travel costs! Zoom's technology has made it possible for us to have a wonderful uninterrupted high-quality experience. With such a high standard met for video conferencing, the need for meeting in person or traveling for meetings has shrunk significantly, which has also helped shrink our carbon footprint.
  • Zoom has helped us significantly increase our productivity. Most of our information users weren't using our previous tech because the experience just wasn't there. With Zoom, they feel more confident in the video tech, and that has increased engagement during meetings ten-fold.
