EDpuzzle to the rescue

5 04 2014

As we endeavour to develop independent learners within our classroom, I am challenged to keep every student productively on task without skipping any components of the lesson and how to most efficiently achieve this.
EDpuzzle meets the requirements. It is a free website which accesses many sources for videos such as Khan Academy, TED, National Geographic, You Tube and Vimeo. Your own videos are accessible by uploading to You Tube or Vimeo.
It is then possible to crop the source to access the section you want to use and add your own narration or use the original. The gem component is the ability to add questions throughout the video. This aspect ensures the students are viewing the videos included in one’s lessons and engaging with the content. The questions can be multiple choice and automatically marked or open and teacher marked.
All these aspects combine to create a more progressive learning environment for our students.

Following marking of the open questions, there is a clear summary of the performance of each participant.
