We believe that Slido can play an essential part in education by facilitating interaction during lectures and virtual classes. That’s why we created special plans for schools and universities and have designed a package for educators that includes integrations with PowerPoint, Google Slides, Zoom Video, and improved Slido Quizzes.

With Slido, you can test knowledge of your students, collect their questions, and ask for their feedback to improve the learning experience.

Good afternoon,  It is time for me to renew my slido, and according to your blog post, I qualify for an education plan.  When I click on the pricing page, I don't see that as an option.  Is there any way for me to be able to utilize this plan?  Liz

Let me know if you need anything else!

I am a full time faculty member at a university. I created an account through my university email, and when I click "Buy now" to sign up for an EDU plan, I get the following message

Request an EDU plan
Please note that our EDU plans are designed for use in classrooms at schools and universitie

I submitted my response to this message, but I still cannot purchase. No matter how many times I press "Buy now", I still get the same message as before. I hope you can help me because I want to upgrade as soon as possible for the new semester's lectures. Thank you in advance.
