Slido Today we are launching Slido for Education, a package of integrations and features tailored specifically to the needs of lecturers. The aim of Slido for Education is to help lecturers stay connected with their students by powering two-way interactions during their virtual or live classes. We planned to announce our new offering at SXSW EDU this week and we are very sorry that such a great event had to be canceled last minute due to COVID-19. Many schools are facing similar challenges now, being forced to cancel classes or move them online. We hope Slido for Education will help teachers maintain the connection with their students and deliver engaging lectures despite the challenging circumstances.
