How do I invite new students?

Once you’ve created your class, you’re ready to invite your students! You can do this by sharing either your Class Code or a direct class link with them. If you use Google Classroom, you can also import your students directly from Google Classroom.

Using your Class Code

Each class you create is associated with a unique Class Code that connects your students to the class. If a student doesn’t yet have an Edpuzzle account, they will be prompted to create one in order to join the class. Here’s how to invite your students:

  1. Click the “My Classes” tab in the top right corner, and choose the class that you want to invite students to.
  2. Click the blue “Invite students” button.
  3. A pop-up window will appear with your Class Code as well as a link you can share. Once you send this information with your students, they can add themselves to your class (after registering for an account).

Note: If you can’t find your class code and you’re missing the blue “Invite more students” button, you have already connected your class to Google Classroom.

Importing from Google Classroom

You can also import your students from Google Classroom:

  1. Click the “My Classes” tab in the top right corner, and choose the class that you want to invite students to.
  2. Click the “Import from Google Classroom” button at the bottom left corner.
  3. Select which class you want to connect to, and click “Import classes”.

Young Students

If your students are too young to manage Edpuzzle by themselves or do not have email addresses, here are some recommended options:

  1. Engage the parents. Assign videos to watch at home and let parents manage the students’ accounts. We have seen a significant impact on student learning and behavior in class when teachers use this technique. Parents are also more aligned with the teacher, and students understand the lessons better.
  2. Easy usernames. Edpuzzle students can create accounts with a username & password -- they do not need an email to sign up. With students who might struggle memorizing these, we recommend using simple login information. For example, having the same password as the username or “firstnamelastname” “123456”.
  3. Watch the video together. Having 5 minutes to watch a lesson and answer questions together is a great way to use Edpuzzle. With this technique, there is no need to create accounts and the students can stop and answer questions in teams or individually.
