Joinpd.com is essentially a code entry platform where users simply enter a code or login with an email address to view and interact with presentations powered by Pear Deck.
In this article, I’m going to explain how the entire joinpd.com login process works from A to Z.
As a student, you can log in to an ongoing presentation on Joinpd.com using one of three options: a five-letter membership code, a membership code plus an email address or a membership link. More about all this below.
But before we get into the meat and potatoes of this guide, let’s take a quick look at what Pear Deck Slides are all about.
What is Pear Deck?
Pear Deck is a web-based educational application that helps educators more effectively engage students and provide formative assessments no matter what class or subject they teach.
Pear Deck is similar to Kahoot, Quizzizz, and other formative assessment tools in that it provides educators with an advanced, yet easy-to-use, educational platform where they can remotely assess their students’ knowledge, progress, and understanding of key concepts in a fun and engaging way .
The great thing about Pear Deck Slides is its simplicity and ease of use. It takes slides created with Microsoft PowerPoint Online or Google Slides and makes them interactive with just a few clicks, allowing students to respond directly to their screens to questions or directions from teachers.
Imagine taking any Google slide you’ve ever created and turning it into a powerful learning experience by simply adding a few interactive elements to your presentation. Just think about it. The possibilities are endless.
Not only does Pear Deck provide an ideal virtual environment for answering questions displayed on a screen, but it also allows teachers to create customized and interesting content that is both specific and tailored to the needs of their students.
Pear Deck allows formative assessment to be performed in six different ways, including multiple choice questions, text answers, numbers-only answers, drawing, dragging marks, and browsing the web. Each presentation can be made unique and each presentation can be used to assess student performance in a number of areas.
Basically, Pear Deck, along with its sister site joinpd.com, lets teachers create engaging, active learning environments where students learn through interactive slides, informational slides, games, quizzes, and more.
Tools like these increase student engagement and provide powerful learning moments that are fully student-centered.
How to log in to Joinpd.com?
As mentioned above, Joinpd is a Pear Deck powered platform that allows you to log into a presentation with an email address and password, or a five letter join code shared by the user who created the session.
After you’ve been invited to participate in a presentation, follow these steps to interact with your teachers and classmates online.
In a web browser of your choice, navigate to Joinpd.comwhere you log in by entering a user-generated code, or a code followed by your email details, including username and password.
While students don’t need to create an account to join an ongoing presentation, they may need a Google or Microsoft Office 365 account to join a Pear Deck presentation if the teacher requires it in their session settings. In other words, joining a session varies depending on how the teacher sets up the presentation.
When a teacher starts a Pear Deck Session, he or she can get a Join Link or a Join Code to share with their students. If the teacher chooses the Join code instead of the Join link, the student will see nothing but a search box in the middle of the screen when they get to the joinpd.com login page. (See image below)
Once students arrive at the website, they must enter the unique five-letter participation code sent by their teacher to log in to the session and join the virtual class.
For better understanding, let’s briefly summarize how the whole Joinpd login process works from start to finish.
The teacher starts a PD session and gets the Join Link or a Join Code to share with their students. The student clicks on the Join Link and logs in automatically, or the student goes to joinpd.com and enters the Join Code.
If the teacher has required email login, the student will be prompted to choose their email account before joining the session. After being prompted to choose their email account, the student must enter their email address and password to login.
It’s worth noting that virtual classes can also be accessed via mobile devices such as iPad, Android phones, and iOS phones, so students can continue learning even on the go.
Rounding things up
In all fairness, Pear Deck Slides is a great grading tool that any teacher can use to turn any presentation slide into an engaging, entertaining, and enriching learning experience for students of all ages.
The best part? It is free to use. However, you can also choose to upgrade to a premium account to access more advanced features that take your students’ learning to the next level.
This is how you log in to a presentation on Pear Deck. If this Joinpd guide was helpful to you, be sure to bookmark it or add it to your documentation. Let us know if we can help you in any way.
