How do I import existing lessons (Powerpoint, Google Slides) into Nearpod?

Nearpod allows you to import your existing presentations into the platform.

You can drag and drop existing files under 10MB (JPG, PDF, PPT, PPTX) into a Nearpod lesson. You can import these files as multiple slides (one Nearpod slide for every slide in your file) or as a slideshow feature (where all slides will appear as one Nearpod slide and students will be able to scroll through them at their own pace within a lesson).

Importing as multiple slides allows you to add interactive activities in between the slides.

• From your Nearpod Library, select the lesson you want to edit or create a new lesson.
• Open up the folder containing the file in your computer. (This could be your desktop, too).
• Click, hold, and drag the file onto the presentation window.  Alternatively, you can use the UPLOAD FILES option to browse from your local computer.
• Wait until it uploads.

You can also import the files as an individual slideshow feature. This way the PowerPoint will appear as one slide.

• From your Nearpod Library, select the presentation you want to edit.
• Select “Add Slide”, “Add content” choose slideshow.
• Open up the folder containing the file in your computer.
• Click, hold, and drag the file onto the presentation window.
• Wait until it uploads.

 

 

If you use Google Slides on Chrome, you can use the Nearpodize extension.

• To install it, first search “Nearpodize” at the Chrome Store.
• Open the link and select “Add to Chrome”.
• Then, select “Add extension”. You will now see the Nearpodize extension to the right of the address bar in your browser.
• In order to use it, open the Google Slides file you want to convert to a Nearpod lesson.
• Click the Nearpodize icon in the top-right corner of the browser.
• Sign in to Nearpod by following the prompt that appears if you aren’t already signed in to your Nearpod account.
• Add interactive activities and multimedia to your new Nearpod lesson!
