Minor bug fixes
Ratings and Reviews
For classrooms with access to iPads, iPhones, or Macs, Nearpod is a terrific way for a teacher to manage what everyone sees on their screen. With this invaluable app, an instructor can give a presentation as students follow along on their individual device or computer, or track pupils’ progress if they’re watching separately. To keep lessons engaging, educators can include fun activities like creating drawings related to the subject at hand, and even incorporate polls and quizzes that record students’ responses.
Website good, mobile website and app inconvenient
I love the program for its engagement and integration. However, one of the best website features is nowhere to be found on the mobile website or app... the student reports?!
If I pay for a subscription, then I want the features to be available across all interfaces. I want to be able to call a parent, pull open the app, and give the parent a reporting on their child’s progress and engagement. I don’t want to be constrained to a desktop computer or lug around a laptop to do this useful feature. It’s really annoying. From other reviews I’m not alone in my thoughts. Come on app developers, get on this.
Frustrating U.I. & Glitches
I am a student, and am pretty familiar with Nearpod, especially now with virtual learning being very prominent, and even still, there has been no recent significant update. There is a lot of drawing, typing, and video watching incorporated into the lessons my teachers assign me; however, drawing is a hassle, as there seems to be no zoom-in option, making it even more difficult to be precise. The video interface is very outdated and only allows you to do three things: pause, play, and pan through the video (even then, this option is very limited and outdated). The text box freaks out when you try to expand it. And, additionally, there's an issue with text/drawings being erased when moving to another slide without pressing the "Submit" button first. This is very troublesome, as, even when you do press "Submit," this means everything you drew (even accidentally) is now stuck there and can no longer be erased, making the drawing feature a very irritating experience to say the least. Please, please, please, implement some kind of update that will resolve these issues that, not only I, but others are experiencing, as well. These are only a few of the issues I experience DAILY as a student (there's too many to name). C'mon, guys, it's 2021 — time to join the virtual world. 🤦♀️
