  1. More agressive anti-hack / anti-bot development.

    I had a pretty large-scale hack/spam attack during a big lecture today! My students (around 150 real players) managed to beat the 250-300 bots(faster more right answers). But If more bots had (e.g. 1000) joined the game we couldn't have played.
    Next time I will use the two-point acces option, but I can see that serveral "hackers"/students are working on developing ways around that!

    You need to be on top of this! This could be the end of kahoot if you dont manage to stay on top of this! That would be such a shame, I would really like to…

      • Data Information

        There should be a way to record student answers to access at a later time to inform instruction and as a way of collecting data. Which would also go along with student accounts so they could "join" a class.

        • A widget/app that would let you embed Kahoot questions into powerpoints or google doc presentations

          Then, rather than having one event of a game, you could have a running "check-in" as you present content. Essentially do what clickers do, but better! (because Kahoot is better).

            Hi all!

            For Power Point 2016 users, there’s actually a handy trick you can read more about here:
            http://www.ispringsolutions.com/blog/how-to-embed-an-iframe-in-a-powerpoint-presentation/

            For Power Point pre-2016 and Google Slide Users, embedding web content is not a feature they offer. This is not something within our control.

            But we are looking into ways to embed kahoots! If the medium you’re using allows embedding web-content, you should be able to do something similar to the trick linked above until we come up with more streamlined methods.

          • Autosave drafts!

            I spent almost 2 hours making an awesome quiz and the page refreshed somehow and I lost it all. Such a heartbreaking waste of time. Can you make a feature that auto-saves drafts?

            • Copy and paste questions/answers from MULTIPLE quizzes to make my own quiz.

              I would love to have a button next to each question when I view quizzes that would automatically copy that question/answers into my own quiz. I would be able to pull lots of questions from multiple quizzes to make a quiz perfect for me.

              • Optional "power-ups" to shake things up

                Power-ups are given out at certain points in the quiz or when certain conditions are met (perhaps players can even spend points on power-ups for a risk-reward dynamic). All power-ups are lost after one use, and are activated at will, unless otherwise specified. There are different kinds of power-ups that work in different ways:

                Point Doubler: Doubles the amount of points you get from your next correct answer. The power-up is lost if you get two wrong answers after its acquisition.

                Point Tripler: Same as Point Doubler, but triples points, and is lost if you get even one answer wrong.

                • "Student accounts" so that I can have greater control over nicknames, students have access to past answers, etc.

                  If students had accounts I could manage who had access to my quizzes, manage nicknames more effectively, and students could have records of performance in past quizzes, and perhaps even review those past quizzes in order to study.

                    • Bonus points for each correct answer in a row

                      I know many students just answer the fast as they can, almost without looking at the alternatives. And for students with trouble reading, they always answer last, and that's not fair.

                      What I want is, 1 point (or 1000 etc.) for the right answer and 0 for the wrong one. And instead of more points for fast answers, what about bonus points for each correct answer in a row?

                      Or have a difficulty level on each questions, som if it is a "hard" question, you get more points than if the question was a easy one.

                      • Use Google Account for log in rather than letting students enter random nicknames.

                        Make students log in with Google Drive for better management over who is who.

                          • Image Reveal

                            Please add an image reveal option that would allow a photo to be revealed as time counts down during a quiz. This would add another layer of excitement and engagement for participants. If participants can spot what object is being revealed sooner, they get more points.

                            Currently people are creating this reveal effect by creating animated GIF files. I know many teachers that use your product. These teachers do not have the time needed to create their own GIF files. It would be great if this feature was built into your product.

                            • Leaderbord on/off

                              I love Kahoot. But I don't like that the leaderboard is shown between all the questions. Wouldn't it be great when I could turn on or off the leaderboard between the questions. I think I would put in on after 5 questions for example. But maybe it is possible to ad a button after each question with "show leaderbord yes/no"

                                • Question Navigation when Starting a Quiz

                                  I often make Kahoot quizzes that I use over multiple days (easier to make one long one instead of multiple shorter ones) but when I come back the next day I have to go question by question to get to where I left off. There should be a navigation option when you start a quiz to either: 1) Start at the beginning or 2) Pick a question to start from

                                        • How about addin Chromecast Support?

                                          Would be awesome if my Chromecast stick would show The quiz on any HDMI Device.
