OSLO – Kahoot!, the global learning and engagement platform company, is announcing today the launch of its web platform and mobile apps in Korean. With this launch, Kahoot! is expanding and personalizing the user experience of its products across Asia, providing millions of lifelong learners with premium content and meaningful learning experiences in their own language.
The addition of Korean marks a new milestone for Kahoot!, now supporting 16 languages in the web platform and mobile apps. Korean is the fourth Asian language available in Kahoot! after the launch of Japanese, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese.
“South Korea owns one of the most remarkable digital infrastructures in the world with a top-performing education system at all levels. The blend of these two elements, in combination with the popularity and usage of Kahoot!, make it a great time for us to accelerate the adoption of digital learning tools at scale among schools, universities, and businesses of all sizes across South Korea,” said Eilert Hanoa, CEO, Kahoot!.
In the last year, over 9 million teachers globally hosted a Kahoot session in K-12 and higher education classrooms to create interactive lessons while fostering creativity among their students. Moreover, hundreds of global organizations including 97% of Fortune 500 companies, use Kahoot! to energize their employees facilitating communication, training sessions, presentations, meetings, and events at the workplace.

Earlier this year, Kahoot! announced a partnership with CLASSUM, the South Korean education technology company that enhances online and offline communication in the classroom and the workplace through digital learning spaces. CLASSUM and Kahoot! have a unified vision of increasing learning engagement through social interaction, friendly competition, and gamified experiences for learners of all ages.
“Our partnership with CLASSUM is a strong foundation in our strategy to expand our presence in the Asian market, and offer easier access to multi-user Kahoot! licensing across Korean schools, universities and corporations of all sizes,” said Hanoa.
Youjin Choi, CEO of CLASSUM said, “I want to congratulate Kahoot! on the launch of their apps and web platform in Korean.

With the launch of Kahoot! in Korean, CLASSUM can further spread social learning, a culture in which people learn together. CLASSUM has also recently released its 4.0 update to break down the boundaries between educators and learners and facilitate communication-centered growth.
