Edpuzzle empowers teachers to make any video their lesson with a combination of simple video-editing tools and powerful analytics about their students’ progress. Teachers can finally take a video and make it personal, engaging and effective for their specific classroom.
Edpuzzle provides teachers with a great way to edit videos to keep students fully engaged during their lessons in any content area. The easy-to-use features can be mastered in only a short time, and students can greatly benefit from the enhanced lesson videos created by their teachers.
With EDpuzzle you can crop any YouTube, Khan Academy, Learn Zillion, Vimeo or other video, insert your own audio notes, narrate over the video, and best of all insert questions at any point in the video to create quizzes multiple choice or short answer quizzes. You can even use some of the video-lessons created by other teachers from EDpuzzle’s amazing video collection.
You can then assign such edited videos and collect data as your students interact with the videos. Students can watch the videos over and over again until they feel comfortable that they can answer the questions correctly.
Another option for using EDpuzzle is to project the edited videos on the Promethean or Smart Board for whole group viewing and having students complete the questions on paper. Teachers can then use the EDpuzzle videos as lecture videos in the classroom. Students can take turns coming to the board and answering the built in questions.
Track how your students learn through your videos – with just one click! Assign a video to your class and let them watch the lesson. Get meaningful data and insights about your students while they watch the video lesson or after they have completed it as homework. See at a glance how they are answering the quizzes and where in the video they are struggling to understand the concepts.
Gain valuable insights about who or who didn’t watch the video and their answers to your questions.
A very useful function EDpuzzle offers is a Chrome extension. Once it is downloaded on the computer, every time one opens a YouTube video, there is an option to “edit with EDpuzzle.” A teacher can then decide to crop it, insert notes, record over the entire video, and/or insert questions for students to answer. The video is then saved on EDpuzzle and ready to be assigned to different classes, which are easily created by providing students with a join code. This allows teachers to receive their students’ results for grading.
If you use videos in the classroom, EDpuzzle is a must have.
