Edpuzzle is a site that lets users select videos from YouTube to edit and customize for your students. Once you have the video you want for your class, add text and images to the video to for enrichment opportunities and add questions to assess your students' knowledge.
If you want to flip your classroom or you just want to use videos in your classroom in a more meaningful way, Edpuzzle is the tech tool for you. Once your students create Edpuzzle accounts and join your class, it becomes very easy to push out a video for bell work or an exit ticket for students to complete. Once the videos is complete you can get information on your students' performance. - ChrisTuckerEdu
"I believe this app is a jewel in a digital learning age! I like that it is simple to set up with very intuitive controls, and best of all it's free!!! This app enables me to assess student's learning when viewing digital instruction via videos I have made or found. This has been a time saver for me as I no longer have to re-teach what I have made a video for in the first place." - Graphite review from Ryan W.
"This is a fantastic tool. As I always say, it is only as effective as the teacher makes it. For learning support, a different video could be created with a different set of questions. The ability for students to play back segments of the videos as needed is great for special needs as well as ELLs. The visual context of video is obviously helpful, as well. By the same token, advanced students can finish quickly and move on to something else, or you could even make a separate set of questions targeting those advanced students. " -Graphite review from Rachel M.
