Positive Nearpod Evaluation Outcome!

We are pleased to announce the continued support for Nearpod in 2015/16

During 2014/15 the eLearning team have been conducting a pilot of a mobile enabled presentation and interaction tool called Nearpod. We had 9 pilots running in a number of schools semester 1 and gathered feedback from both staff and students to gauge the impact on both staff and students involved. More details of the pilot can be seen in the following post:  Nearpod Pilot Applications

The pilot sought to investigate the suitability of Nearpod as an institution wide tool to support changes in the model of teaching as well as the ‘Switch it on’ policy, based on the evaluation of 4 key criteria:
1.    Functionality
2.    Usability and accessibility
3.    Technical and support
4.    Impact and engagement

Details of the pilot report can be found below –

    Thanks for sharing your detailed report about the Nearpod pilot within the University of Brigthon. We will be sending lots of our Higher Ed inquiries to this blog post and to your report.

    Despite the fact that we are still quite focused on K-12 (US), we’re seeing more and more usage among instructors in higher education and the feedback is very positive. It is super hard to keep a class of 200 or 300 students engaged and mobile+social media is making it even harder as Students get distracted more easily than before. We’ve made a huge progress supporting large classes. We still have some more work to do to streamline this aspect of the platform. In particular, we are working to be more reliable in campuses where the wi-fi coverage is not excellent.
    Thanks again for your sharing your deep analyisis. We were proud to see that your instructors are so engaged with our platform and that 100% of the pilot participants would recommend to others.
    Warm regards,
    CEO, Nearpod
