WELCOME TO EDPUZZLE!
STUDENTS, IT'S TIME TO COMPLETE YOUR EDPUZZLE ASSIGNMENT.
- Click on the EDpuzzle icon above.
- You are a STUDENT today, so create a STUDENT account login using your school Google account.
- You will need the class code to login. Your class code is aQoLpL.
- Once logged in to Edpuzzle as a student in my class, please wait for further instruction.
- Normally students will view the video in Edpuzzle independently with earphones and work at their own pace responding to questions that are embedded in the video. Please mute the sound on your computer. We will view and listen to the video together through the LCD projector, yet everyone will play the video at the same time on individual computers and respond to the questions.
- After you complete the Edpuzzle video assignment, you will see how teachers can view student answers through Edpuzzle. You are the students right now, so your answers will be displayed in front of this class! We will also spend a few minutes learning how to use the Edpuzzle site and its features.
TEACHERS, IT'S TIME FOR YOU TO CREATE AN EDPUZZLE ASSIGNMENT. IT IS TIME TO PLEARN - PLAY AND LEARN!
- Logout as a student, and create a teacher account in EDpuzzle. You may use your school Google account login.
- Once logged in, create a class by clicking the MY CLASSES tab at the top of the EDpuzzle screen. Click ADD CLASS and follow the steps. Just as you needed a class code to enter into my Professional Development class, your students will need a code to access your class in EDpuzzle. EDpuzzle creates the code, and the code is always visible under your account on your class page.
- Click on the MY CONTENT tab at the top of the Edpuzzle page. Click the CREATE button.
- Notice the menu on the left. You can search EDPuzzle for lessons previously created by other educators. You can save those to your class and edit them. You can also search for videos from the other free video sites by clicking on them in the menu (You Tube, Khan Academy, and so on). EDpuzzle will not pull all videos from these sites, only those deemed educational. You can also paste a URL in the search box. Not all video links may be compatible with EDpuzzle, but give it a try. QUICKLY choose a video for your class.
- Embed questions into your video: Pause the video. Click the question mark icon. A text box will appear on the right side of your screen. Type your question in the text box. Click the green SAVE button above your question (not the one at the very top of the screen). Click the blue CONTINUE button. (Repeat to add more questions.)
- Once you have finished embedding questions, click the green DONE button at the top of the screen. A series of questions will prompt you for information about the video, including assigning it to your class.
- Use this time to play with and learn the tools in EDpuzzle. You can always come back later and make edits to your EDpuzzle if you plan to use it in your class.
