Gimkit was created by high school students and is similar to Kahoot! and Quizizz, except the students play for “money” instead of points. The free version allows you to have 5 Kits (games) in your account. The paid version allows for unlimited Kits and edits and includes other features. The Pro version is $59.88 a year or $7.99 per month. School and bulk discounts are available. Wa5ch for changes in the pricing structure in the near future.
Gimkit includes a library of Kits from users. You can create your own Kit by typing in the questions and answers or you can upload questions from Quizlet or a CSV file.
