With open classes, your students aren't required to have an Edpuzzle account, which means they won't need to create a username or password. For more information, check out our article on how open classes work.
On the other hand, if you'd like to record your students' progress on an assignment, then students must have an Edpuzzle account. However, if you're simply sharing your content with a colleague or don't need to record their grades, then the person you're sending the link to does not need an account.
To track your students' progress on a video assignment, they will need an Edpuzzle account. When they complete assignments through their account, you’ll be able to see whether they’ve watched the video, their quiz responses and more. See the article on how to invite new students for instructions on how to add students to your Edpuzzle class.
If you don’t need to track progress, you can share a link to your video that anyone can access, even without an account. You can do this by opening the video and clicking on "Share preview." From here, you can share a direct link to the video or embed the assignment on a site. When somebody opens a preview link, they can watch the entire video and view questions, but their progress and grades won't be recorded.
