EdPuzzle

What does it do?

EdPuzzle allows you to edit videos and assign them to your class. You can crop the videos, insert questions to check understanding and prevent skipping when the students watch the video. The content comes from a variety of sources, including YouTube, Khan Academy and National Geographic.

Why?

EdPuzzle gives you more control over setting videos for use in class or at home. For flipped and blended learning EdPuzzle also allows you to get feedback on learning, using questions during the video, making videos a lot less passive and more active for the learner.

Key Features

  • Imports classes and assigns to Google Classroom. 
  • Free to use.
