Do you consider yourself an educator? Has lock-down affected your conventional way of teaching?
Well, Pedagogue is an online platform that offers social interaction between teachers and students with robust features such as live streaming, video conferencing, and on-demand chat rooms for sharing resources in virtual classrooms.
Think of it as Facebook with a virtual classroom and teaching tools for the tutors and their students.
Founded by Dr. Mathew Lynch, one of the best Edtech influencers according to the Mimio Educator, The Pedagogue offers teachers, mentors, influencers, and anyone that refers to themselves as a tutor a place to create, host and market their training material.
Online teaching is becoming an integral part of the education sector, especially now that most countries have imposed lockdown among citizens making it difficult for teachers and students to have a one on one interaction in the physical classroom.
But with platforms offering creators a way of sharing their knowledge without students having to be present, the hassle is, of course, mitigated.
Why Use Pedagogue?
While there are several other platforms for tutors to share educational resources with their students, Pedagogue remains unmatched with its unique features and ease of use.
The most significant selling point for the platform is that it’s free.
As a tutor, you can start your virtual classroom that is not limited to live streaming but can also be used as a medium for sharing educational resources like PDF books and multimedia such as video, audio, and photo.
Other features include;
- User-friendly interface
- Ability to connect with other educators
- Ability to create special groups dedicated to specific topics
- Ability to cast your screen to other users
