Best Practices for Creating Kahoot

Updated

We know that you use Kahoot a lot for classes and meetings. It would be a best practice to start using Poll Everywhere and we have a lot more article on Poll Everywhere which can be found here Poll Everywhere. Another pro for changing to this best practice is that we can have meeting with Poll Everywhere to talk about any issues that are being encountered with the software including adding more accessibility feature into it. These are not able to be done with Kahoot.

Best Practice is to Add Alternative Text (Alt. Text) to Images

Select the i icon which will allow a pop-up to add the alt. text. You can find more information about what information should be included in the alt. text text box from this article How to create Alternative Text.

A Screen Steps article for the best practice of adding alt. text to images inside of a Kahoot can be found How to Add Alternative Text (Alt. Text) to Kahoot.

Imbed YouTube Videos

By utilizing this best practice of imbedding YouTube videos, you can use their captions to make sure that videos are accessible to all students. You can upload you own YouTube video or chose a YouTube video already uploaded to utilize the closed captions. 

An article on uploading a YouTube video, adding captions, and changing them to make the closed captions correct can be found How to Upload a Video to YouTube, Add Closed Captions, and Change Closed Captions
