We don't replace your LMS.
We integrate directly within it.

Nectir acts as a collaborative layer embedded within your LMS class page. Once an instructor adds Nectir as a new module, it will auto-create their class channel, auto-add their class roster, and embed the window as seen here.
Integrates with any LMS via LTI 1.3.

How To Create Your Classroom Community Backchannel

Classroom backchannels facilitate real-time digital conversations that complement live lectures, enabling students to actively engage, clarify doubts, and collaborate with peers, even if they're hesitant to voice concerns aloud. For educators, backchannels offer immediate feedback on student comprehension, reduce repetitive query addressing, and foster a more interactive and inclusive learning environment, making them a crucial tool for modern education.
