Oslo-based edtech company Kahoot! has announced that it has reached one billion players on its game-based learning platform.

Kahoot! allows users to create quizzes for users of any age and in different languages.

The company is celebrating one billion cumulative players but as of now, it has 40 million monthly active users (MAUs). This is up 60% from the same time last year, it said, and 67% of these users are based in the US, including two million K-12 teachers that have signed up.

“Our highest purpose is to help learners realize their deepest potential, both inside and outside of classrooms, and to create the most relevant global learning brand for today’s learners,” commented CEO Erik Harrell. “With that in mind, we are investing in the development of additional game formats, our mobile application, and in new features for brands, publishers and audiences in the Kahoot! game space.”

The company raised $10 million in funding last year and will be exhibiting at SXSWedu this week in Austin.
