How to use Nearpod with Microsoft Teams

As a teacher, your school or district may have a platform you use to communicate 

and collaborate with other teachers, or use a platform for virtual lessons with students.

with students. One of those platforms may be Microsoft Teams. 

 

If this is the case then it's great to know that Nearpod can integrate lessons with Microsoft teams.

Here is how to get started

**If a user would like to take advantage of connecting their Nearpod account using Single Sign-on (SSO) they will need to add the Nearpod app to Teams using the web-based version of Teams and not the Teams application.  Once the app has been added to Teams it will appear in both the Teams web-based instance and Teams application.**

 

1. In Microsoft Teams, select the 3 dot icon (...)on the left side of page. This will open the "More added apps" tab
