Nectir has been a game changer for me as an instructor and online course designer!

For years I was unsatisfied with the disconnected formality of online course interactions in discussion forums and emails. Nectir’s ability to embed private channels directly into the course website, automatically pull students into it, and send mobile notifications makes it so easy for students to collaborate, ask quick questions, and help each other - which builds class community.

Nectir helped me foster community.

Nectir staff enthusiastically helped me set up the Nectir platform so my students can network with each other. The Nectir folks believe in their product and know how to use it to maximum benefit. They've given me invaluable assistance to get the program up and running, helping me foster a classroom community which benefits each student by facilitating communication with classmates and teacher.

Nectir gave me peace of mind knowing that I was able to communicate with all my students at once.

The use of Nectir created a sense of community among my students who felt suddenly confused, isolated and distant from their academic setting during the sudden transfer to remote-only classes. Now, more than one year later, we have returned to in-person classes, and I am still using Nectir as an integrated platform in all of my courses.

Created by students, for students.

As students at UC Santa Barbara, we were in classes with hundreds of students with no easy way to get help in our courses. We built Nectir to empower classrooms to build their own communities so that they can help their students succeed.
