Students: Install and Get Started With Ponder


Ponder is a lightweight browser extension and iOS app that you will be using in class to share excerpts of your reading and watching, and to interact with your classmates' responses. Ponder will also provide your instructor with data that measures your reading on sites that are in your Reading List and Course Packet

To get started, you must first click the link provided to you in an email from your instructor. This will take you to a form in which you can create your account. 



If you aren't sure about Student ID, ask your instructor

Once you create an account, you will be prompted to install the Ponder client in your browser (either Chrome or Firefox). You may also download the iOS app to your iPhone or iPad. 


After you click install, approve installation in your browser:

That's it! You are ready to start reading and critiquing excerpts on any text you highlight in your browser or any video.

Take a moment to review the Reading List and Course Packet for your groups by clicking "Settings" in the top right corner of your activity feed.

Those sites and documents your teacher has chosen, as those are the only documents on which Ponder will keep track of your reading.
