It combines presentation, collaboration, and real-time assessment tools into one integrated solution. Nearpod requires one Tablet or PC/MAC and at least one other device (tablets, smartphones, Chrome books, PC/MAC), both running Nearpod. All devices should be connected to the Internet. The pricing varies, the SILVER Edition (FREE) provides up to 50MB of storage space, up to 20MB of presentations and up to 30 students per live session, web & Twitter support options, PDF reporting. Upgrading to Nearpod GOLD, offers more storage space (up to 3GB), larger file uploads (up to 40MB), more students per session (up to 50),  additional interactive features (add audio slides, add twitter timeline, and insert web pages in your presentation), and student self-paced feature (Nearpod homework.)


Teachers use Nearpod to share content with their students and to manage the flow of the lecture. Students use Nearpod on their mobile devices to receive multimedia content and to participate in engaging assessment and collaboration activities.
