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.
- Open the Kahoot! link
- 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.
- Click Play and Host live to launch the kahoot, so the lobby is showing with the game PIN.
- 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.
- 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
- Have fun!
