Overall Satisfaction with Kahoot!

We are using Kahoot! in our department to engage youth and college students and test their knowledge on subject areas in a fun way. We use it with the youth and college students individually and in a team format. Although we are using it, I believe that many others in departments across the university are also using it in their classroom settings. I know this from informal conversations, but we don't have a university-wide license. Most of us are using the free education model.
  • Engages learners
  • Keeps it fun
  • Provides instant feedback
  • Is easy to use
  • 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.
  • We use the free version so there is definitely ROI for us.
  • It provides easy access to a quiz feature without having to use complicated software.
  • So many people are using it now that some students seem to be getting a little "over it."
We've used Qualtrics in the past to collect the information, but it really isn't designed to be used as a "quiz" feature. We have to export each student's answer individually and that's a tedious process. There's also no automatic feedback. We've also used Quizziz a few times recently instead of Kahoot! and actually like that software a lot too. It has some additional features that aren't available in Kahoot!.
It's fun, easy to use, and we have access to a free version.
I would love to be able to get an activation code ahead of time and load it into my presentation so it's ready to go.

Do you think Kahoot! delivers good value for the price?

Would you buy Kahoot! again?


Kahoot! is fun, the students like it, and it engages them with the activity. You can make it a group or individual activity and they test their knowledge without too much pressure. The game does all the scoring for you and provides updates after every question. It's really easy to use and provides interaction in the middle or end of a presentation.
