    I often recommend Kahoot! as a tool to get students excited about study material and for classes who like to have fun together. The leaderboard is a great way to infuse some healthy competition. I also love that you can make your quizzes available afterwards as study material for students who want to play again later in “Ghost Mode”. They can even try to beat their previous scores which is really neat.
