We call this way of playing “connected Kahoot!’ing.”
In essence, it means playing a live game of Kahoot!, but with students or whole classes in another location – home, different campus, even a different country.
Participants use Kahoot! with an online video conferencing tool (with screen sharing capability) to facilitate this.
1. Log in to your Kahoot! account and find your kahoot to host.
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 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.
