    How to delete or lock a classroom

    If you'd like to get a better control of your class, you can lock it to prevent other students from joining it, even with the class code. Another useful tip is to delete it, for example, when you're starting a new semester and you want to delete the old classes to avoid mixing them.

    In order to do any of the mentioned options, please follow these steps:

    1. Go to "My Classes"
    2. Select the class you'd like to lock or delete
    3. Go to "Members"

    - Delete a class:

    • Click the "Remove Class" option at the right, below the Locking access.
    • Confirm the deletion by selecting 'yes'

    Here's a quick video that might help.      

     

    - Lock a class:

    • Click the "Lock access" option at the right.

    How to archive a classroom

    Unfortunately archiving classes is not available for the moment, even though we are considering it for newer versions of Edpuzzle, right now we do not have this feature. Although we strongly recommend that teachers delete and create new classes every year.

     

  • Change student password, name or remove / Class members

    1) Go to the class that the student is enrolled in and then click on the tab titled "Members".

    2) There you will see your entire roster of students who have been invited to that class and you can click on the links "Edit Name", "Reset Password", or "Remove". EDpuzzle.png

  • Set the Due date.

    Due Date

    The "due date" is used to set a starting and a finish date. Students will be able to watch the videos even after the due date has passed (for example to review before an exam). However, you will always hold your students accountable and if someone completed the task after the due date, you will be notified of the progress report. 

    You can set a due date directly when assigning video or once assigned:

    1. Press the following buttons under "My Classes" to:

    EDpuzzle.png

    It is important to remark that if you set a future start date, the assignment will appear under the "Upcoming" section and your students will not be able to watch it until the start date arrives.

    Organize Assignments

    The due date is, right now, the only way to organize the content for your students, which by default is organized by last assigned on top. We are aware that we need to improve the user experience by adding more organization tools, we will work on it.

     

     

     

     

  • Create a new classroom

    If you do not use Google Classroom, there are two ways you can create a new Edpuzzle classroom. The first one after editing your video and the second one directly from the "My Classes" page. If you are a Google Classroom user please check this article to see how to import a new classroom.

  • How to Sort Students Alphabetically in "Progress"

    Currently, we sort student progress reports by grade. This way you can quickly segment who in your class needs additional instruction or didn't understand the concept in the video. 

    However, if you would like to sort your progress report in alphabetical order by the Last Name, here is how to do so: 

    1. Go to "My Classes"
    2. Select the "Progress" button of the assignment you want to check
    3. Then click on the title "Student Name" to sort them alphabetically

    Screen_Shot_2017-07-17_at_3_38_48_PM.jpg

     

    You can only sort them alphabetically by the Last Name if the students have written their names as "Last Name, First Name" in their profile. If they have not, you can ask them to change their names by visiting the profile page, or you can easily change it yourself:

    1. Go to "My Classes"
    2. Select the "Members" tab, at the top right corner
    3. Click on the "Edit Name" text on the student you want to modify
    4. Change the name so it meets the "Last Name, First Name" criteria
    5. Then you will be able to order them correctly on the Progress page

    The co-teacher option is something that isn't possible now, unfortunately. Sharing a login account is the only alternative as of now, we hope that can work for you. 

    We appreciate your patience on this as we are a small but hard working team, building all things teachers tell us one at a time :)

  • How to Archive Assignments

    1) When you archive an assignment that has already been completed in one of your classes, it will move from the "Due Soon" tab at the top of the page, down to the archived tab which is labeled by the month and the year.

     

    2) In your class, under the "Assignments" tab,  scroll down and click on the "Month, Year" tab and you will see your archived videos from that month. Students will still have access to the videos that have been archived, it will just allow your "My Classes" view to be organized more clearly by the date the assignments were due.

     

    3) If you would like to unarchive your videos, on the far right there is a button with an arrow that you can click on to unarchive the content. (Here's a picture so you can see it).

     

     

    Once you unarchive it, it will move the assignment back up to your "Due Soon" section!
