Title: Using Nearpod to engage students and conduct formative assessment in online teaching


Nearpod is a powerful online teaching tool for conducting online lessons. It enables the lecturer to design interactive lessons containing various activities such as Quizzes, Polls, Videos, Collaborate Boards, Line-Drawings, and Open-Ended Questions. In addition, it is easy for students to complete interactive tasks via Nearpod. Student feedback shows that doing Nearpod tasks is one of their most enjoyable part in experiencing online teaching. From the lecturer’s viewpoint, conducting online teaching via Nearpod helps the lecturer monitor students’ learning progress, assess them formatively, and understand their motivation and needs.
