Nearpod is a classroom engagement tool that allows for multiple ways of engaging students, including quizzing, collaboration, polls and open-ended questions. Students can also draw on an image as a response. PowerPoint presentations can be uploaded to Nearpod and activities embedded throughout. Sessions can be student paced or presenter paced. Students enter a unique code for each session.
There is a maximum of 40 participants in a single session for the free version and 75 users are the maximum for the $349 per year.
Use your device to control the presentation with the professor station signed in as a "student."
Sometimes using it in Chrome or Firefox and trying to save seems temperamental. Internet Explorer seems to be the preferred browser.
Presenters can get a report of engagement and answers.
Only a name and email address required to set up a free educator user account. Students are not required to set up an account and only need to enter educator provided code to participate. Students can use nicknames, first names or initials if they need to be uniquely identified during the session. Platform permits students to submit voice recordings and photos but publication is controlled by educator user and feature is optional.
