Who: Teachers looking to create blended or flipped lessons.
How: Teachers create an account on edpuzzle.com. Teachers then create lessons with questions, voice, and notes in the video itself. Videos can come from a variety of streaming video websites. Teachers can add multiple choice, extended response, or just have a comment at any point in the video. To distribute, the teacher can create classes with student accounts or share a link or use the embed code to post it to the web. When assigning a video to a class, teachers have the options to disable skipping ahead.
When: Useful options include blended/flipped lessons, snow day work, etc. Another great use is as a bell-ringer while the teacher takes attendance.
This tool is easy to use. In a matter of a few minutes, a teacher can have a lesson based off a youtube video ready for students to view. The system makes it easy to get to the embed code for teachers to add the lesson to their LMS of choice. Below is a lesson I made off of a video made by Calvert Catholic Schools.
