Oslo-based Kahoot, a gaming learning platform, announced the acquisition of Clever Inc., a California-based company that is one of the most widely used digital learning platforms by U.S. K-12 schools. The partnership between the two companies comes as learning opportunities grow in the U.S. amid the outbreak of COVID-19.


Clever is a startup that has built a single-sign-on portal for educators, students and their families to build and engage in digital learning classrooms, and is currently used by about 65% of all U.S. K-12 schools. The deal gives Clever an enterprise value of between $435 million and $500 million.

Although Kahoot will own Clever upon closing of the transaction, it will remain an open platform and continue to operate under the Clever brand.
