Team space

A team space is designed to boost collaboration at scale by helping an organization create a centralized library of learning material. It’s ready-made for organizations that want to retain full oversight and ownership of their content while providing colleagues with a secure, one-stop-shop of high-quality kahoots.

Groups

Groups provide greater flexibility for sharing and collaborating as any Kahoot! user can set up a group and invite individuals of their choosing – from within their organization or from an external group. Unlike a team space, where members create one centralized library of content, Groups let Kahoot! users build curated banks of content that are targeted to specific use cases and individuals – saving time and ensuring relevant resources find the right hosts.
