Students can join a Nearpod lesson from any device with a browser. There's also an iOS app and an Android app to make it even easier for students to join! You can also push out a lesson through your learning management system, Google Classroom, Teams, or simply by sharing a web link. Students don't need any login information besides the five letter code.
This article explains how you can launch the lesson with your students.
Joining with a code
Students should navigate to nearpod.com/student, or open the Android or iOS app, and enter the five character code provided by the teacher.
Entering the lesson
Once students enter the code or click on a link to join a lesson, they'll see the screen below and enter their name to join the lesson.
Note: If you turn on student name validation, students will be prompted to join via Google or Microsoft Single Sign-On
Joining from a link or an LMS
If your students are joining from an LMS, like Canvas or Schoology, Google Classroom, or Teams, or if a link is shared in another way, students will simply click on the link and be brought into the lesson.
