The shared School Library is a common repository of Nearpod lessons, videos, and activities curated to make Nearpod supplemental content easily available to all users in a school. A shared School Library allows all Nearpod teachers or users to access the same content an administrator or users have added into a set of shared folders.
With a shared School Library administrators can:
- Strengthen instructional consistency and collaboration with centralized sharing of Nearpod lessons, videos, and activities
- Drive instructional consistency with shared Nearpod lessons, videos, and activities across grade levels, subjects, PLCs, faculty meetings, whole-child initiatives, and more
