Frustrating U.I. & Glitches
I am a student, and am pretty familiar with Nearpod, especially now with virtual learning being very prominent, and even still, there has been no recent significant update. There is a lot of drawing, typing, and video watching incorporated into the lessons my teachers assign me; however, drawing is a hassle, as there seems to be no zoom-in option, making it even more difficult to be precise. The video interface is very outdated and only allows you to do three things: pause, play, and pan through the video (even then, this option is very limited and outdated). The text box freaks out when you try to expand it. And, additionally, there's an issue with text/drawings being erased when moving to another slide without pressing the "Submit" button first. This is very troublesome, as, even when you do press "Submit," this means everything you drew (even accidentally) is now stuck there and can no longer be erased, making the drawing feature a very irritating experience to say the least. Please, please, please, implement some kind of update that will resolve these issues that, not only I, but others are experiencing, as well. These are only a few of the issues I experience DAILY as a student (there's too many to name). C'mon, guys, it's 2021 — time to join the virtual world. 🤦♀️
