• How do I remove a student from a class?

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

    1. Click the “My Classes” tab in the top right corner.
    2. Select the class that the extra student is in.
    3. Select the “Class students” tab.
    4. Choose the student account you would like to remove by checking the box next to their name. You can check multiple boxes at once if necessary.
    5. Click the “Remove from class” option that appears below.
    6. Confirm your removal(s) and you’re done!

     

    Removing students is helpful if they have created an extra account by mistake. However, doing so will delete that student's data from that class.

     

  • How can I sort my students?

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

    When you are 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. Date last seen on Edpuzzle
    5. Whether they’ve turned in the assignment

     

    Click on your desired heading to sort, and click again to flip the order.

     

  • How do I change student passwords and names?

    If one of your students has forgotten their password, or if you need to change their name in Edpuzzle, you can make these changes easily! Here’s how:

     

    Reset password

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

  • How do I delete, lock, or edit a class?

    After you've created your class, you'll have several options to manage it. This article will show you how to delete, lock, and edit your classes.

    Delete a class

    If you’d like to delete a class when you’re starting a new semester or when you no longer need it, you can follow the steps below. However, once you delete a class, the class data will be lost.

    1. Click the “My Classes” tab in the top right corner.
    2. Select the class you would like to delete.
    3. Click the “Class options” button on the right side of your class, and a drop-down menu will appear. {screenshot 01}
    4. Click the “Delete class” option.
    5. Confirm the deletion and you’re good to go!

    Lock a class

    To get better control of your class, you can lock it to prevent other students from joining it, even if they have the class code. This will lock access so that no new students can add themselves and re-take assignments. Here’s how:

    1. Click the “My Classes” tab in the top right corner.
    2. Select the class you would like to lock.
    3. Select the “Class students” tab.
    4. Click the “Lock classroom” button on the right side of the page. {screenshot 02}

    Edit a class

    Once you’ve created your class, you can still edit the class name. Follow these instructions:

    1. Click the “My Classes” tab in the top right corner.
    2. Select the class you would like to edit.
    3. Click the “Class options” button on the right side of the class, and a drop-down menu will appear. {screenshot 03}
    4. Click the “Edit class name” button.
    5. Type in the new title of your class.

  • How to move a student to another classroom?

    If you’d like to re-organize your students between your classes, you’ll need to remove them from one class and invite them to the other. However, this will lose the students' progress from their original class.

    Follow these steps: 

    1. Click the “My Classes” tab in the top right corner
    2. Select the class of the student you'd like to move
    3. Select “Class students”
    4. Remove the student from the class
    5. Navigate to the new class. Click the blue “Invite students” button on the right side of the page. {screenshot}
    6. Give the new class code or link to the student you want to add to that class.

     

    This can be done to multiple student accounts at once, by checking more than one name and sending the class code to as many students as you need to. Once the students have joined the new class, you’ve successfully transferred them from one class to another!

     

  • 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 will be prompted to click the “Create a new class” button. Otherwise, click the “Add new class” button on the left sidebar.
    3. Set a name for your class.
    4. Press “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 do I invite new students?

    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

    Each class you create is associated with a unique Class Code that connects your students to the class. If a student doesn’t yet have an Edpuzzle account, they will 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, and choose the class that you want to invite students to.
    2. Click the blue “Invite students” button.
    3. A pop-up window will appear with your Class Code as well as a link you can share. Once you send this information with your students, they can add themselves to your class (after registering for an account).

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

    Importing from Google Classroom

    You can also import your students from Google Classroom:

    1. Click the “My Classes” tab in the top right corner, and choose the class that you want to invite students to.
    2. Click the “Import from Google Classroom” button at the bottom left corner.
    3. Select which class you want to connect to, and click “Import classes”.

    Young Students

    If your students are too young to manage Edpuzzle by themselves or do not have email addresses, here are some recommended options:

    1. Engage the parents. Assign videos to watch at home and let parents manage the students’ accounts. We have 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 & password -- they do not need an email to sign up. With students who might struggle memorizing these, we recommend using simple login information. For example, having the same password as the username or “firstnamelastname” “123456”.
    3. Watch the video together. Having 5 minutes to watch a lesson and answer questions together is a great way to use Edpuzzle. With this technique, there is no need to create accounts and the students can stop and answer questions in teams or individually.

  • Can I Embed an assignment into an LMS, Blog or Website?

    If you want to embed your lesson into your LMS or blog, this article should help. Your students can watch the video from one place, and you will collect the progress report and responses in Edpuzzle.

    To find the embed code, you just need to follow these steps:

    1. Go to the My Classes tab and select the class you shared the assignment with.
    2. Click on the specific assignment you want to embed.
    3. On the right you will see the second option "Share Assignment". If you click it, you will get the URL and the embed code.
    4. Click the "Copy Code" blue button.

    You can paste the embed code into 99% of the LMS in the market. For example: Schoology, Moodle, Blackboard, Canvas, Haiku, or Edmodo. If you need help embedding your lesson into your LMS, please let us know (support@edpuzzle.com).

  • How to sync my students from Google Classroom to my Edpuzzle Classes

    To import your students from Google Classroom into your Edpuzzle classes, you must first connect your Google Classroom account and Edpuzzle together.

    Once you've imported a Google Classroom to Edpuzzle, all the students from the Google Classroom are automatically imported.

  • 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 do not need to record their grades, then the person you're sending the link to does not need an account.

    If you want to track their progress on a video assignment, students 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 [how do I 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 without an account. You can do this through the "Share with anyone / publicly shared links" tab -- you can either directly share a link to the video, or embed the assignment. When somebody opens a publicly shared link, they can go through the video assignment, but their answers and progress will not be recorded.

    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!
