• How do I invite new students to my class?

    Once you’ve created your class, you’re ready to invite your students! You can do this by sharing either your class code or a direct class link with them. If you use Google Classroom, you can also import your students directly from Google Classroom. 

    Using your class code

    Note: Scroll down to the "Importing new students from Google Classroom" of this article if you're using Google Classroom.

    Each class you create is associated with a unique class code that connects your students to the class. If a student doesn’t have an Edpuzzle account yet, they'll be prompted to create one in order to join the class. Here’s how to invite your students:

    1. Click the “My Classes” tab in the top right corner.

    2. Select the class you'd like to invite your students to.

    3. Click on the "Students" tab and then the blue “Invite students” button.

    Note: If you can’t find your class code and you’re missing the blue “Invite students” button, you already connected your class to Google Classroom. 

    Importing new students from Google Classroom

    When you connect your Google Classroom to Edpuzzle, the roster is automatically imported.
     
    However, once a classroom has been connected to Google Classroom, the only way to add more students is to add the students to the Google Classroom course and then import them to Edpuzzle.
     
    Here's how you can import your Google Classroom roster to Edpuzzle:
     

    1. Check your Google Classroom to make sure the student is on the roster for the same Google Classroom connected class to Edpuzzle. If not, you'll need to add them to the Google Classroom before proceeding.

    2. In Edpuzzle, click the "My Classes" tab at the top right.

    arrow_to_my_content_tab_template_copy.png

    3. Select the class you've connected to Google Classroom.

    sync_students03.png

    4. Click the "Students tab" and on the right-hand side, you'll see the "Import students" button. Click it, and you're ready to go! 

    Any new students who joined the Google Classroom course after it was originally imported will be enrolled in the Edpuzzle classroom. The student will have to log in to Edpuzzle with their Google Classroom account and be on the Google Classroom roster as well.
     

    Young students 

    If your students are too young to manage Edpuzzle by themselves or don't have email addresses, here are some options:

    1. Engage the parents. Assign videos to watch at home and let parents manage the students’ accounts. We've seen a significant impact on student learning and behavior in class when teachers use this technique. Parents are also more aligned with the teacher, and students understand the lessons better.
    2. Easy usernames. Edpuzzle students can create accounts with a username and password – they don't need an email to sign up. With students who might struggle to memorize these, we recommend using simple login information, like something fun, memorable, and secure for your students!
    3. Watch the video together. Having five minutes to watch a lesson and answer questions together is a great way to use Edpuzzle. With this technique, there's no need to create accounts and the students can stop and answer questions in teams or individually.
  • How do I remove a student from a class?

    If you need to delete a student from your Edpuzzle class, you'll need to follow these steps:

    1. Click the “My Classes” tab in the top right corner.    
    2. Select the class with the student you'd like to delete.
    3. Select the “Students” tab.
    4. Find the student account you want to remove and click the ellipsis button (...) to the right of their name.
    5. Click the “Remove from class” option from the drop-down menu.
    6. Confirm your removal(s) and you’re done! 

    If you need to remove multiple students at once, check the boxes to the left of the students' names and select "Remove from class" from the bar at the bottom.

    Removing students is helpful if they've created an extra account by mistake. However, doing so will delete that student's data from that class so be careful when deleting students!

    Lock a class

    1. Click the “My Classes” tab in the top right corner.
    2. Select the class you would like to lock.
    3. Select the “Students” tab.

  • Do my students need an Edpuzzle account?

    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 from the "Assign" window by clicking on the "Public links: tab. You can share the video lesson link or embed the assignment. When somebody opens a publicly shared link, they can view and complete the video assignment, but their answers and progress will not be recorded.

    To sum up, students need an Edpuzzle account if you want to track their progress. Otherwise, they can simply view the assignment through a public link. Happy teaching!

  • How do I create a new class?

    There are two ways you can create a new Edpuzzle class: directly from "My Classes" or after editing a video lesson.

    Create a new class from “My Classes”

    1. Click the “My Classes” tab in the top right corner.
    2. If this is your first class, you'll be prompted to click the “Create a new class” button. Otherwise, click the “Add new class” button in the left sidebar.
    3. Set a name for your class.
    4. Click “Add class.”

    Create a new class after editing your video

    1. Once you’re done editing your video, click the blue “Finish” button at the top right corner of the page. A pop-up window will appear.
    2. Select the “Add class” option.
    3. Set a name for your class.
    4. Click the check mark. Your new class will be created, and the video lesson will be assigned.

    Your new class is now ready to go!

  • How can I sort my students?

    In your class roster, students are automatically sorted alphabetically by last name, from A-Z.

    When you're viewing student data from an assignment, you can sort by any of the listed headings:

    1. Alphabetically by student name
    2. How much of the video they’ve watched
    3. Grade received
    4. The last date they watched the video on Edpuzzle
    5. Whether they’ve turned in the assignment

    Click on the heading of your choice to sort, and click on it again to reverse the order.
