    Can students join challenges from a web browser yet? That isn't addressed in this article. The SOLE reason I've never assigned a challenge is because students need the app, which means they can't access it from our school's chromebooks.

    Is there a max number of students that can play the challenge?

    Is there a help page I can use to show my students what to expect when they do a challenge at home?

    What if there is no challenge button available? Not next to it and not under the options bubbles.

    I tried for hours but I think I figured it out. Are you logging into an account that has premium access? It’s normal something you pay for but they are offering it free right now. If you are not signed up for premium access the challenge button is hidden. Once you sign up it appears

    How many times can they play the challenge? Only one or can they repeat if results have not been good?

    There's a bug! I have created a challenge and some of my students cannot access the challenge from the website. It tells them they need the app. I tried it on my computer. It told me the same thing both in the Edge browser and Chrome browser. I had the "learn from mistakes" whatever it is called option clicked...Thinking that might be it because it was the first time I used that option, I created a new Kahoot and it worked for me but some students it still didn't work.

    I tried a challenge with my class of 25 students this morning and it was a complete disaster. Many of them were ejected of the game after 3 questions and couldn't access the test again. Some of them had a black screen with no questions at all. Yet, they are all computer science students and are well equipped with laptops or PC. So in theory Kahoot Challenge looks great but when you really try it with your class it doesn't work. This was the only way for me to test them remotely, but I think I'll go back to the good old word document and a time limit! I love Kahoot and I've been using it for many years and will continue to do so, but it works better in the classroom.

    The challenge tool is really helpful. However, I have found out that after setting a challenge, the modifications in that kahoot are not updated in the kahoot that students practice whend doing the challenge. So in the end I have to to a duplicate, modify, set a new challenge and delete the original. Is there an easier way to do this?

    This helped immensely!!  I just did not know to click on the PLAY button to get to the Challenge option!  This was critical information that is not intuitive.  Thank you for this great article.  I wasted a LOT of time trying to figure it out before reading this! :-)

    Is there a way to change the deadline once the challenge has been created?

    Is there any way someone from Kahoot can write a detailed step - action plan for Kahoot Challenge when using Chromebook?  Teacher version and student version would be very helpful.

    Am I right in that the only way for a student to see the questions AND be able to select the answers on the same screen = through Challenge?

    Am I right that if we use Kahoot live, the Ss have to read the teacher's "meet | hangout" screen that is being presented to them on their Chromebooks and then, really really fast, tab over to the Kahoot.it screen to enter the answer?

    Kahoot = terrific for the classroom.  Just trying to make distance learning with it as streamlined as possible.

    Thanks!

    This is from a student, and I have had the issue with one or two from each class.  
    "It's still says the username is already taken and won't let me in."

    From a student:  "It's not letting me join the game. It says after I put in my nickname, that the name has already been chosen and asks me to pick another one, no matter what name I put in."

    As far as I know, you will have to modify your name a bit if you already used your name for a first time in the challange. So, for example, after using "John" next time if you red it again use "John 2" and so on.
