Our district has purchased Nearpod since it is supposed to integrate with Canvas so well. HOWEVER, a HUGE, ESSENTIAL feature is missing: the ability to observe my students in LIVE TIME! Apparently this needs to be fixed on the Canvas end- NOT on Nearpod's end of the integration relationship.
"Thank you for contacting Nearpod Customer Support. Viewing progress is not available when assigned in the Canvas External tool, this is a canvas limitation and not a Nearpod one. You can create a code and post to canvas to view progress but the reports would Not show up in speedgrader."
This is a necessary feature as I need to be able to determine if my students are drawing models or solving problems correctly IN THE MOMENT-LIVE---- not after the fact.
Is it possible to get this feature enabled in Canvas so that I can monitor student progress WHILE they are engaging in the Nearpod lesson!? Why would Canvas integrate with Nearpod and leave this feature out- it's imperative in this online learning environment that we, as teachers, are able to take advantage of these features.
