We learn better together.
By harnessing the power of community using instant chat, we’ll help you create a more modern, student-centered experience that boosts student success. Nectir is built on the Protege Effect to take students from rote learning to meaningful learning in every class.
A community in every class.
Research shows that students are more likely to persist when they have a strong sense of belonging and community. Foster peer-to-peer collaboration to maximize student retention, reduce faculty stress, and create a more accessible classroom + campus for everyone.
Prepare your students for the workforce.
To prepare students for the newly-remote workforce, they need access to modern collaboration tools in every class. Nectir teaches your students how to thrive in virtual spaces, work with peers to solve problems, and become self-starters.
Track engagement in real-time.
We provide user-friendly analytics dashboards in every Nectir channel so that you can track and identify students that need help the moment they disengage. Reach out to at-risk students within Nectir itself to bring them back into the classroom community instantly.

Nectir began when we were at our own critical juncture in our college careers. After feeling isolated and disengaged with a learning experience that was costing us a fortune, we decided we had two options: either drop out or attempt to fix our own problem. Determined to make a difference, we founded Nectir, a platform that creates a campus-wide network to foster a community in every class.
Digital Citizenship: The Key to Delivering a Modern Education
Welcome to the fully digital age, where higher education institutions are facing the Herculean task of preparing students for a virtual world that changes faster than you can say "floppy disk" (remember those?).
