How Students Join a Pear Deck Session
When you ‘re done creating your interactional Pear Deck Slides, launch your presentation to start a new Session. Students must join your school term to see your slides and react to your interactional questions on their screens. Below, you can find a Quick Guide for Students to join a Session, and a Login Settings Guide for Teachers .
Quick Guide for Students
Students do n’t need to create a Pear Deck history to join Sessions, but they may need a Google or Microsoft Office 365 account to join a Pear Deck Session if the teacher requires it in their Settings ( see the next section ) .
- The teacher starts a Pear Deck Session and gets the Join Link or Join Code to share with students.
- The student either:
- Clicks on the link OR
- Goes to joinpd.com and types in the Join Code
- If the presenter has required email login, the student will be automatically logged in with, or prompted to choose, their email account before entering the Session.
- Now the student is in the Student View, where they can see the presentation slides and respond to interactive questions.
Login Settings Guide for Teachers
As the teacher ( donor ) you get to determine whether students join your Sessions with an e-mail account or anonymously. Login settings are held for all future Sessions. If you turn OFF student login and let students join anonymously, you will not be able to retrieve their names or email addresses from any Sessions you present going ahead . Turn ON student login anytime to start collecting e-mail addresses and names again. Keep reading to learn more :

Turn on Email Login so Students Join with an Email Address
When you require students to join with an e-mail address, they must enter or select their electronic mail account after submitting the Join Code at joinpd.com or clicking on the Session Join Link. Their e-mail addresses and names are automatically saved along with their responses ( but never displayed on the Projector View ). You can easily review students ‘ exploit and see who left each reception in the Dashboard, Takeaways™, or by exporting responses to a Google Sheet ( Takeaways™ and spreadsheet exports are available with Google ). There are two places from which to determine login settings :
Require email login if you want to see who submitted responses for any reason, during or after the Session. It’s the only way to collect their names!

- Go to the Require Student Logins section. Click ON. Then, choose the account type you want students to use to join your Sessions. When you require login, you can only allow one email account type to join your Session. Going forward, when you present your lesson and students go to joinpd.com, they will be prompted to join with an email account after entering the Session Join Code or clicking the Join Link. This setting applies to all further Sessions until you change it.

Let Students Join Anonymously
When you let users join anonymously, they are not prompted to enter electronic mail report information. rather, an avatar and dub is assigned to each scholar. Participants can respond to your synergistic slides, but you wo n’t see their names. Turn OFF scholar login on the Settings page and in your Pear Deck sidebar menu ( see the steps above ) to make login anonymous .
When you turn off scholar login and let students join anonymously, you will not be able to retrieve their names from any Sessions you present going forward. Turn the setting back ON to collect scholar login information again from future Sessions.
