If you wish to create a homework assignment for your students, you can launch a Student-paced lesson. Instead of launching your lesson as a live lesson, where you navigate the slides on your device and that is reflected on the student's, you can let your students view slides at their own pace.
In your Library, go over the lesson you would like to launch. The options “Live Lesson” and “Student-paced” will appear. Select the “Student-paced” mode. You will automatically see a pop-up with a code. Share that code with your students. They can type it onto nearpod.com/student from anywhere and do their homework. Note: Let them know they need to hit “Send” when they finish an activity.
