I wanted to take a little time to introduce and discuss Kahoot (https://getkahoot.com/)! This is a new Web 2.0 tool that was introduced during our last course by a classmate. To access Kahoot visit https://getkahoot.com/. Kahoot is a game based classroom response system that allows account holders to create questions, quizzes, discussions and surveys. Accounts are free and require a username, e-mail address and password. Kahoot can be accessed using any web browser on tablets, laptops and mobile devices.
Select a style of Kahoot (quiz/survey/discussion) then begin by following the prompts to title the project. Questions then can be created with possible answers. Kahoot also has an option to imbed pictures and videos. After creating the questions, the creator adds the possible answers. The correct answer is identified by clicking on the red "incorrect" button so now the correct answer is identified. A tool bar at the bottom of the page offers the creator options to create more questions, cancel the question or move onto the next step which is settings. Next Kahoot gives the creator an option to add a cover image. Once the creator has completed the quiz, survey or discussion a code is generated to allow individuals to access the Kahoot.
