Kahoot! introduces a groundbreaking storytelling format to boost engagement and make online training more effective
In response to the growing demand for engaging and effective corporate learning solutions, Kahoot!, the global learning and engagement platform, has unveiled its innovative storytelling format, “Story.” This new feature, designed as part of Kahoot! 360, the company’s offering for business professionals, aims to address the widespread disengagement and boredom experienced by corporate workers during online training.
The Need for Engaging Corporate Learning
A recent survey commissioned by Kahoot!, the 2022 Workplace Culture Report, highlighted the challenges faced by companies in delivering effective online training:
- 87% of workers feel bored at work, mostly due to ineffective online training and virtual presentations
- Only 14% of employees are actively listening and paying attention to online training for the whole time
- 46% said the content of online training and virtual presentations is not personally relevant to them
These findings reveal the pressing need for a modern online training experience that engages employees and addresses the challenges posed by remote and hybrid work environments.
Kahoot!’s “Story” is a mobile-first, interactive storytelling format designed to make online knowledge sharing with Kahoot! Courses even easier and more engaging. It combines various content formats, such as video, Kahoot! sessions, and documents, into a single, cohesive learning experience.
With plans to integrate generative AI content creation tools into Story later in 2023, Kahoot! is set to revolutionize how companies turn dry documents and presentations into engaging learning experiences or create courses from scratch in minutes.
James Micklethwait, VP, Kahoot! at Work, said, “We’re super excited to launch ‘Story’ – an interactive storytelling content format which will make Kahoot! Courses even better. When combined with the famous Kahoot! quiz, these two world-class formats create a truly unique learning experience and allow enterprises to deliver engaging asynchronous corporate learning at scale.”
Reinventing the Training Experience for Modern Workplaces
As conventional online training tools struggle to maintain engagement, especially with Gen Z employees, Learning and Development (L&D) professionals must adopt new strategies to meet future goals. Kahoot!’s “Story” is designed to address this need by offering an easy-to-use content creator tool with a built-in premium image library and video integrations.
The mobile-first, microlearning format of Story allows for content consumption in less than seven minutes, avoiding content dumping and enabling employees to retain more information. Additionally, Story promotes knowledge sharing among peers outside conventional meeting spaces.
Availability and Success Stories
The new Kahoot! Story format is now available as part of Kahoot! 360 Spirit, Kahoot!’s flagship plan for corporate learning and employee engagement. Leading brands in financial services, retail, and technology have already successfully adopted the Story format in Europe.

Empowering Enterprises to Drive Behavioral Change
In a world where technology is driving change, automation is displacing jobs, and the challenges of hybrid and remote work are making it harder to develop and retain talent, the need for effective corporate training has never been more urgent. Kahoot! is doubling down on engagement as a means to drive behavioral change in the corporate arena, helping companies reskill their employees and upgrade their L&D initiatives.
With 75% of senior managers dissatisfied with their L&D initiatives, according to Harvard Business Review, and Gartner reporting that 70% of employees feel they lack the skills required to do their jobs, the introduction of Kahoot!’s “Story” could be a game-changer.
The Future of Corporate Learning
As Kahoot! continues to innovate and expand its offerings, the company is poised to reshape the future of corporate learning. By integrating generative AI content creation tools into its Story format, Kahoot! is laying the groundwork for a new era of engaging, effective, and scalable learning experiences that cater to the unique needs of today’s workforce.
With the launch of “Story,” Kahoot! reaffirms its commitment to helping organizations build engaging, interactive learning experiences that foster employee development and drive organizational success. By leveraging the power of storytelling, Kahoot! is set to revolutionize corporate training and position itself as the leading learning platform for the modern workforce.
