Anyone has the idea if Canvas can acts as Nearpod or integrate with Nearpod ?
Get engaged with Nearpod! - YouTube
I don't know of Nearpod, but my first thought would be to use the redirect tool app to link the entire Nearpod page to your course.
I have also found another solution from an off-community blog by someone who has linked Nearpod and Canvas (Nearpod Blog), which basically embeds an iframe into a page How do I embed iFrame videos using the Rich Content Editor?
Hope this helps,
Nearpod now integrates with Canvas!
This is such a new integration, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of information on the setup process just yet. On the blog post others have mentioned, I did notice a setup guide created by Nearpod, which can be found HERE. This should be the right info to at least get you started, but I'm sure we will see more info/resources here in the Community before too long.
You will need a premium Nearpod account. We configured the LTI at the account level using the provided key and secret. The URL was listed in the setup guide created by Nearpod. Teachers go to Modules and choose add an External tool and then scroll to select Nearpod. You can decide to have the presentation open within the Canvas page or load as a new Tab.
Checked with Nearpod Support, you need a School or District Account. You can copy key and secrete password for LTI APP "NEARPOD" in Canvas.
Paste these when you apply the NEARPOD LTI in your setting.
Add "External Tool" to a new item for a module or unit, select "Nearpod". Then you log in Nearpod within this environment and have to choose the "Lesson" that you want.
You can choose "Live Lesson"or "Student Pace" for interactive classes or students' revision. Then you can collect report as if you are using NEARPOD log in (only in School or District modes).
You can embed link of the lesson and paste to any page at HTML mode. However, only Preview for students' reference can be approached and no report can be generated.
One issue is still unsolved: if you prepared a Canvas Nearpod Live Lesson, for instance, and added other teachers to this course, your colleagues may not be able to use Nearpod in their lessons because the key is different.
I used an android phone to watch Nearpod Live Lesson and Nearpod Self Paced Lesson. Both showed error message, either.
Still need to fix these new issues.
However, the complementary functions of Canvas and Nearpod brings light to a complete solution for e Learning.
It works in ios.
For android, may need to wait for future improvement.
