How to Kahoot! Remotely

Using Kahoot! In a classroom setting is a breeze, and there are two easy ways to run Kahoot! quizzes for distance learning. 

We put together this guide that explains how you can use Kahoot! with online learning.

Host live through video conferencing

If you’re set up for teaching classes with live video, you’re already half way there. Participants use Kahoot! with an online video conferencing tool (with screen sharing capability) to facilitate a virtual classroom session.

  1. Open the Kahoot! link
  2. Connect to your video conferencing tool of choice – for example, Google Hangouts Meet, Skype, or Zoom – make sure your webcam, microphone, and speaker are turned on.
  3. Click Play and Host live to launch the kahoot, so the lobby is showing with the game PIN.
  4. Share your screen, so students joining can all see the game PIN. They will need a screen to see the questions and a second device to join the game.
  5. Host the kahoot as usual, taking care to not speak over the music that plays during the timer countdown – you can either:
      ▸ Wait until the final answer responses are shown to talk
      ▸ Mute your speaker to talk over the game music
  6. Have fun!

Share the link

All Kahoot! games can be played at any time, so you can add a direct link to the Kahoot! game to your Google Classroom notes, or email it to your students.

You can offer your students to play the Kahoot! in their own time, or to call up a friend and play together.

Note that while sharing the link directly allows students to self-test at their own pace, you won’t be able to see the classroom stats and ranking for the Kahoot! game.
