Oslo-based learning and engagement platform company, Kahoot has announced the launch of their Kahoot! add-on for Google Classroom.
This new add-on will make it possible for educators and learners around the world to discover, create, assign and host interactive learning sessions without ever leaving Google Classroom. As a Google Classroom add-on early access partner, Kahoot! is one of the first digital learning platforms to be available as a Google Classroom add-on.
The announcement was shared on the Google for Education blog, “Add-ons provide a better end-to-end experience to not only save time for educators, but also simplify the digital classroom experience for students, too.”
Through the add-on, teachers can search for or create their own kahoots, as well as discover the millions of ready-to-use learning sessions on Kahoot!, which educators can then assign for students to complete directly within Google Classroom. The Kahoot! EDU offering for schools and school districts also enables educators to access a school library of kahoots, where they can find and share learning content with other teachers throughout the school or district.
This integration marks Kahoot!’s latest collaboration with Google, beginning in 2019 when Kahoot! was selected to become a Google for Education Partner, followed by working together to launch Google Search Practice Problems and integration with the upcoming live sharing feature on Google Meet.
