Wow! Have you tried EDpuzzle?
Are you looking for a way to incorporate educational videos into your classroom? Maybe, you find a great movie, and only want your students to see a small part of the video. EDpuzzle is the answer!
Would you like your students to utilize 21st century skills…such as video editing? Project-based learning? Check out EDpuzzle!
EDpuzzle is a Chrome app, but will work on other browsers as well.
Teachers simply create a FREE account, choose a video from YouTube, Khan Academy, Vimeo, LearnZillion, Crash Course, TED, and more!
Find a 15 minute video with 5 minutes of solid, relevant content? EDpuzzle provides EXTREMELY easy, step-by-step instructions for editing your video.
Make your video interactive by including questions at certain important points! This is a really cool feature…when the video advances to the question, the question pops up to the side of the video. Awesome! Add voice instructions or introductions with help from the concise instructional videos provided on the site.
When you “assign” the video to your students, EDpuzzle will provide a code. Simply give the code to your students and (after they have registered) they can view the video, answer questions, and you can track their progress!
EDpuzzle really is an amazing tool for all classrooms, but would be extremely beneficial to teachers who have flipped their classroom.
This is my plan for using EDpuzzle next year…
- I’ll create screencast using the wonderful Explain Everything app on my iPad. This will allow me to annotate and narrate the screen, and include a “picture in picture” on the screencast.
- Then, I’ll upload my screencasted video to Vimeo.
- Next, I’ll open EDpuzzle, and copy and paste my video URL into the program
- I can edit and include questions for students to answer in the video
- Voila! Instant awesome lesson
