Edpuzzle has several features that empower teachers to hold their students accountable and make sure that they watch their assignments and understand the content.
Allow or Prevent Skipping
Edpuzzle’s "Prevent Skipping" feature is a great tool to make sure your students watch the whole video you've assigned them.
To use this feature, check the “Prevent Skipping” slider when you assign the video. Now, when your student needs to finish watching a video later, they can go back to where they last left off but no further.
You can also check the progress of each student on the videos you assigned them. To do this:
1. Select a class from the list under “My Classes” on the left-hand side of your screen.
2. Click on the assignment you want to track.
The assignment dashboard has two tabs: "Students" and "Questions." In the "Students" tab, you have an overview of how much every student has watched of the video, when they were last watching the video, and when they turned in the assignment. Clicking on a student's name will provide individual data. In the "Questions" tab you can see an overview of all questions embedded in the video and quickly see how many students answered correctly. Click on a question to see which students got it right or wrong.
Automatic Video Pause
When your students start playing a video on Edpuzzle and switch tabs in their browser, the video will automatically pause until they go back to the Edpuzzle tab. This way, students must watch the video in order to complete the assignment and are not able to do other activities in their browser while the video is running.
