san rafael – WEBWIRE

Today, Nearpod, the edtech platform that lets K-12 teachers find, create and distribute digital learning experiences, announces that its platform now integrates with Canvas by Instructure, a leading learning management system.

Through this integration, Nearpod teachers with Gold, School or District Licenses have the ability to access Nearpod’s Learning Tool Interoperability for Canvas (LTI for Canvas) and Nearpod Self-Paced Lessons, an effective way for teachers to easily launch asynchronous presentations for students to move at their own pace.  

“This partnership is in direct response to listening to our teacher community who wanted an easier way to work with both Nearpod and Canvas,” said Guido Kovalskys, CEO and cofounder of Nearpod. “Teachers have the hardest job in the world, and we want to make it not only easier for them, but also more engaging for students.”

With Nearpod’s LTI for Canvas, teachers can add Nearpod content to Canvas modules and access an analytics dashboard that provides insight into student content-mastery. In addition, teachers can assign Nearpod Self-Paced Lessons or lessons that students can access and navigate at their own pace.

“Nearpod’s interactive lesson plans are a model for the future of education,” said Melissa Loble,VP, Platform & Partnerships at Instructure. “Nearpod is pushing the boundaries in education by pioneering the use of virtual reality in classrooms and we’re excited to bring their powerful pedagogical platform to Canvas.”

The news follows a series of recent announcements from Nearpod. The company recently raised a $9.2 million Series A funding round led by Reach Capital and unveiled the finalists of a grant program where 50 schools across the world received high-quality Nearpod VR headsets, more than 25 VR-based lesson plans, professional development, dedicated one-on-one support as well as a Nearpod license for their school.
