How do I search for videos?

There are a number of ways to find a video for your next lesson on Edpuzzle. 

My Content

Select “My Content” from the left-hand menu to search through videos you've already stored in your account.

To upload new content, click the blue “Add Content” button at the top of your screen. Then choose “Upload video” to upload a video file from your computer or Google Drive, or “Record video” to use the screen recording function provided by the Edpuzzle for Chrome extension.

Edpuzzle Originals

Edpuzzle has developed a collection of high-quality, professionally-made, ready-to-use video lessons, called Edpuzzle Originals, organized by subject and grade level. These videos are a huge time-saver and a great jumping-off point since you can always modify the embedded questions after you’ve copied a video to your Content.

With new videos being developed all the time, you’ll be sure to find an engaging video lesson that meets your needs.

My School/My Network

This is where you can view and copy lessons that other teachers in your school or district have stored. 

There are two ways to access this content:

  • If you’re looking for content saved by a specific colleague, select “My School”/”My Network” from the left-hand menu and click on that teacher’s name from the list provided. If you’re part of a larger network of schools, first select that colleague’s school, and then you’ll find a list of teachers at that school to choose from.
  • If you just want to browse content created by all teachers in your school/district, or filter by subject and grade level, Select “Discover” from the left-hand menu and then choose the “My School”/”My Network” tab. 

Discover

Select “Discover” from the left-hand menu to search through all videos on Edpuzzle.
The “Community” tab will show you video lessons that other teachers on Edpuzzle have created.

Type your keywords into the search bar at the top of your page, and Edpuzzle will display the top results. Not finding what you're looking for? Feel free to get more specific with your search terms or use the “Subjects,” “Grade levels,” “Country,” and “Source” filters to customize your findings.

Select the “YouTube” tab to browse videos only from YouTube, and use the channel filters at the top of the page to find content created by popular educational channels like Khan Academy, National Geographic, Crash Course, and more.

Finding videos directly on YouTube

You don’t have to exclusively search the channels on Edpuzzle to find your favorite YouTube videos to use as Edpuzzle lessons. Just copy the URL of the YouTube video you want and paste it into the Edpuzzle search bar to start editing.

If you're browsing YouTube and come across a video you'd like to share with your students, you'll definitely want to install the Edpuzzle for Chrome extension so that you can quickly and easily import the video directly from YouTube to your Edpuzzle library.

If you find a video you want to use with your students through any of these avenues, you can copy it to your Content and, if needed, edit it to make the video and/or questions more relevant to what you're teaching.

Here’s a quick video tutorial to walk you through the above options:
