Add Your own Question Sets to Any Video? For Free? Yup. EdPuzzle.
So here we are, No. 10 in our series on varied approaches to creating flipped and blended learning content. Before moving forward, let’s take a quick look back at the myriad approaches we’ve written about over the last few months:
- The perennially popular technique of screencasting
- Narrating over PowerPoint
- The low-tech FIZZ method
- The web app mysimpleshow
- The high tech (but probably not as challenging as you might think) approach of using a light board
- The use of Blendspace as a tool for assembling digital content for flipped or blended lessons
- The rather unique approach of using Adobe Connect
- The powerful ed.ted.com platform
- In our last post, we discussed the use of the Learning Management or Course Management system as a vehicle for flipped or blended lessons
In this post, we’ll introduce a tool that educators across the world have embraced: EdPuzzle. This web app enables you (at no cost) to build questions into pretty much any video, and get viewing stats and question results for your students. That’s powerful stuff … like the old Guiness commercial used to say: “Brilliant!”
Being able to embed your own questions into any video allows you to turn it into your own lesson AND ensure student engagement with the content. And the viewing stats and quiz results combine to make this tool an absolute “home run”!
Here – take a look for yourself. Earlier this year I created this “Three Minute TOOL-torial” that introduces EdPuzzle:
