LessonUp as alternative to Nearpod

Jan-Wolter Smit

Head of Education

Nowadays there are a variety of online tools available for teachers. And they all focus on something slightly different. So we can imagine that you can be a bit overwhelmed in the selection of the right product. So what to choose? We often get the question: what is the difference between LessonUp and Nearpod and why should we choose LessonUp? Even though the products have a lot of similarities, they have distinct differences as well.

      I was originally a Nearpod user, but I didn't like that students couldn't get instant feedback unless I was doing a live lesson. I don't like live mode where all the kids work at the same pace because some kids need extra time. I needed something that could be self paced and give instant feedback.
