New Features From Nepris for the New School Year

Posted by on September 12, 2016

I’ve written about Nepris before–a transformative cloud-based platform that connects STEAM subject experts with teachers and classes. This month, they’re offering a great group of back-to-school tools that will help you organize your expert presentations and share out the details:

Share an update in your activity feed right from your teacher dashboard by typing it into the box at the top of your screen.



Filter videos and sessions by career cluster and grade level, so you don’t waste any time finding what you’re looking for!






Get immediate guidance navigating the new website by logging in and clicking on “Take a Tour” on the bottom right of your dashboard. For more support, access Help Videos on every page.
