EDpuzzle is a video editing tool that allows you to customize preexisting video files. It allows you to cut down/crop a video, add audio or narration to a video, insert quiz questions to evaluate student learning, and monitor student viewer history.​

Challenges

  • EDpuzzle as a tool

    Reflect on the various ways that EDpuzzle could be used in the educational, training, or personal learning environments. From your selected perspective, describe two different examples where EDpuzzle could be integrated and used. In both cases, explain why EDpuzzle could positively impact learning.

    Use the open text area to submit your reflective response. As a suggestion, you may want to first compose your response in a word processed document, check for all editing that needs to be completed, save your response so that you can access it later, if needed, and then copy and paste your response in the open text area for this challenge.

    Teachers can use this to teach content. I have enjoyed this tool. It is great to use with music!!! I can see this really benefiting a foreign language class. The ability to pause and give instruction or to check for understanding is revolutionary. I wonder if teachers could use this to give feedback! I think of a coach uploading a video of a dancer, athlete or even a singer! They could give feedback or use the narration tool! I love this idea.

    Teachers can also use this for assessments. The quiz tool and the ability to assign it to students allows for teachers to create a new assessment to check for understanding. This would eliminate a basic quiz. Once again I think this would be great for foreign language! Students could listen and then type the response.
