The Teaching Commons is pleased to announce that Lakehead University will pilot KahootPro starting May 2019. Kahoot is an online game-based interactive response application that instructors can use pose questions, facilitate discussions, collect data, and much more.  

KahootPro is free to students, faculty, and staff.  Instructors can request a pro license by sending an email to Leslie Malcolm (lmalcolm@lakeheadu.ca).

Some features of KahootPro include:

  • sharing and co-creating Kahoots within the university's team space.
  • access to customizable game templates.
  • free use of an extensive image library.
  • a teaching and learning support blog.
  • advanced reporting.

Kahoot offers the following game types:

  • Quiz – multiple-choice game where participants select the correct response from two to four answer options using the shape/colour tile.  
  • Jumble – sorting game where players place the four answer options (coloured tiles) in the correct order. 
  • Survey – similar to a quiz but without correct or incorrect answers.
