Kahoot

Principal function(s): Poll and survey creatorsQuiz/exercise makers

Kahoot is a gamified platform that allows the creation of interactive activities in four different formats: quizzes, discussions, surveys, or jumbles. Evaluation: Kahoot is a valuable and engaging tool to add an interactive twist to classroom activities. It requires that both teachers and students have a device (computer, smartphone, tablet...) in order to use the games in the classroom and a data projector or screen to share the results. It becomes an easy-to-use tool after some practice.

Cost: Free without registration for players, with registration for Kahoot creators + paid premium features
