If you want to reduce the length of a video you can use the crop feature, that way you will be able adjust the duration of the video to your necessities. We recommend the shorter the better!

Playlist of videos. Merge two videos.
Unfortunately, this is not possible at the moment, we are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause you. Therefore, we recommend changing the title and adding: (Part 1 of 3, Part 2...). This way, the students will know how many videos they have to watch "per assignment".

Download my EDpuzzle video-lesson
Unfortunately it is not possible to download EDpuzzle videos at the moment. There's no video player out there that supports neither our audio notes nor our quizzes. However in the future we will work hard to see if this is an option for our users.
Enable closed captions to your video-lesson
When a user watches a video-lesson from any Youtube video that is originally closed captioned, a CC button will appear to enable/disable the subtitles:
Please note that some videos may seem closed captioned from Youtube, but most of them use a speech recognition
technology to automatically generate closed captions on the fly, which unfortunately doesn't work on other sites - like ours.
I want my students to create their own video-lessons in EDpuzzle
That is an excellent idea. Here is an old video that explains how students can create their own video lessons. To get started you just need to go to My Content > Create > Student Project and assign it to your class:
Edit the Name of a Video
If you want to edit the title of the video, you will have to go to MyContent > Click on the video > Edit > Change the title on the top-left corner. This is useful if you want to organize your content.
- Organize "My Content" in Folders
- Embed Images, PDFs or Formulas
Embed a Link to your questions
A great way to add more value to your questions or comments is by connecting them to another website or document.
When you embed a question, there is a link button that enables you to hyperlink any word to another website.
Here is a video that might be useful:
- Embed Image in Question
- Include Feedback in Video Questions
Move questions from one point to another
If you missed the right spot to put the questions, don't worry, you can move the question by dragging and dropping it to the right spot.
Here is a video that might be useful:
All answers are correct in my multiple choice questions.
We do not offer the "Poll question" option. So if you embed a multiple choice question and you select more than one answer as correct, the students will have to select all the right answers in order to get full credit. We suggest you create an open ended question, maybe offering some answer ideas, so your students can give you some feedback without having bad grades.
If you have some troubles grading your students or you're afraid it can be difficult, please follow this article to learn how easy it can be!
