What is live mode?

With Edpuzzle's Live Mode feature, you can project your video live in front of the whole class while students answer in real time on their own devices!

To start a live assignment, select a video from your content and assign it to a class. Then, from the assignment screen, click the blue “Go live!” button.

To enter your live assignment, your students just need to log in to their Edpuzzle accounts and go to your class. This will automatically take them to your live assignment. When all your students are ready, click the blue “Start!” button and the video will play on your projector screen.

The questions will appear on your students’ screens as well as on the projector screen. You’ll see how many students have answered the question so you can decide when to move on.

When you click on “Continue,” students will see any feedback you’ve included for the questions on their screen and the correct answer for multiple-choice questions. On the main screen, you can click on “Show responses” to display the results in percentages for the whole class. Names won’t be shared so your students won’t be embarrassed if they get a question wrong. You decide when time’s up and when to move to the next question.

To finish the assignment, click “Exit live.” You can also quit the assignment at any moment. (You'll be automatically exited from live mode after 3 hours if you forget to click "Exit live.")

You can access your student’s grades by clicking on the assignment or from the gradebook.

Note: At the moment, live mode isn't compatible with the Android app. If your students are using smartphones or tablets, they should use the web version on their devices rather than the mobile app.
