Description: This passage is mainly about nearpod student login. In this passage, the writer introduces a few basic features which are necessary for Nearpod users to use.
Now we have briefly discussed an introduction into Nearpod, I would like to introduce a few basic features which are necessary for Nearpod users, once you log into Nearpod, you will come to this page that provides several options, such as my library, explore, join, create and reports.
Let’s begin by looking into these features, I am going to skip my library for now, because if this is the first time to use Nearpod, there is nothing there, let’s start with the explore button, it is where we will spend the majority of our time, as you scroll through the page, you will probably see familiar names such as Common Sense Media read works and many more.
There is a section for top lessons, and save Nearpod vr and authors and publishers, let’s take a look at the top free section, first here you will find hundreds of lessons that can be used in the classroom, as you view all of the lessons to choose from, you will notice important information located in a frame around every lesson, the frame includes the subject, author, grade level, title, price and views.
All of the lessons on our page will be listed as free, because we are in the top free section, let’s click on a lesson, once you click on a lesson, you gain more information, now I can see that the lesson has 32 slides, a short description of the lesson and other lessons related to the content.
If you look in the bottom right corner, you will see a button that says add to my library, I always add anything that catches my attention to my library, because it can easily be removed later on, before we visit our library, let’s take a look at what is inside a lesson.
As we scroll through, you will see that there is a page giving credit to the company author, and other people are involved in creating the lesson, now let’s look at all of the features available in a Nearpod lesson, first we come to a YouTube video, after viewing the video, there is a one-question quiz to check for understanding.
There are so many features that we will discuss later in the article, now let’s move on to the next button in our menu, simply click on the house in the top left corner, once you are back to the home menu, click on the joint button, this is an easy way to join a lesson, you do not have to join a lesson to view it, you only join if you want to participate in the lesson.
We will quickly look at the create button, we will not spend much time on create, because we will go deeper into making Nearpod lessons in a later article, when you come to the create page, you will see all of the lessons that you are working on or have completed, but as you can see, I have not created any of my own lessons, but you will drag and drop any file to begin creating a lesson.
Many features can be added to make a Nearpod lesson, which is much more than a presentation, as we return to the home page, let’s skip down to the report button, report is an area where teachers can collect data from quizzes, and other features are embedded in the lessons, we will talk more about reports in a later article.
I am back on the home page, I would like to look at the my library page, now here you can see that all of the lessons that have been added to my library, as you hover over a lesson, you can see that, there are two ways to deliver a lesson, live lesson or student paste, which is a premium feature, and it can only be accessed through a paid account, the delivery is very self-explanatory.
Live lessons are controlled by the teacher and students’ pace, it allows the students to move at their own pace, we will choose a live lesson, then give a code that students will use to access the lesson, as mentioned in a previous article, students can receive the code through email, direct link, social media or several learning management systems.
Students can also login to the lesson by directly typing in the code that the teacher has projected on the board, now this lesson has been added to my library, I can adapt the lesson, and make it mine, click on the add activity button in the top right corner.I can add a web resource or an open-ended question.
One other thing that I would like to point out is that it is located at the bottom of the screen, once you share the lesson code, you will see the number of students in the lesson as well as their names, thank you for joining in, next time we will discuss how to create our own Nearpod lessons.
