• 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, check out this article to learn more


    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 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, check out this article to learn more


    Open classes

    With open classes, your students can join a class and complete assignments without an Edpuzzle account! To invite students to the class, click on the "Invite students” button in the upper right-hand corner of the class page. You can either share the link or class code with your students. Students won’t be able to save their sessions, so if they leave your open class and then join again at a later time, they’ll be treated as a new user.

    In contrast with classic classes, open classes don’t have a “Student” tab. This is because each assignment will generate its own list of students as they join your open class.

  • 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!

  • Can I embed an assignment into an LMS, blog or website?

    With Edpuzzle, you can easily embed your video assignments on your website or LMS!

    How to use Edpuzzle with your favorite LMS

    If you use Canvas, Schoology, Moodle, Blackboard, Powerschool or Blackbaud, among others, you can enjoy all the benefits of Edpuzzle from within your LMS!

    With the Edpuzzle integration, you can share your video lessons with your LMS classes, and your students will be able to complete them right in your LMS. They don't even need to create an Edpuzzle account! 

    Check out these articles to guide you through the set-up process:

    If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out to us at support@edpuzzle.com for help! 

    Embed edpuzzles on your blog or website

    You can embed edpuzzles into virtually every website or blog. Your students can watch the video from one place, and you'll 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'll see the first option "Share assignment." Clicking on it will open a pop-up that gives you the URL and the embed code.

    4. Click the blue "Copy code" button.
      Embed_Code_for_Assignment.png

    You can paste the embed code into the majority of blogs and personal website platforms (i.e. Blogger, Google Sites, etc.). It will also work for virtually any LMS on the market (i.e. Haiku or Edmodo).

    If you're a WordPress user, you can share the assignment with a link which will redirect your students to Edpuzzle (the embed feature isn't currently supported). 

    Important note: Assignment links are class-specific, meaning if you've assigned a video to multiple classes, each class will have a unique assignment link which will only work for students in those classes.

    If you need help embedding your lesson into your LMS, please let us know by contacting us at support@edpuzzle.com.  

  • Do my students need an Edpuzzle account?

    With open classes, your students aren't required to have an Edpuzzle account, which means they won't need to create a username or password. For more information, check out our article on how open classes work.

    On the other hand, 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 by opening the video and clicking on "Share preview." From here, you can share a direct link to the video or embed the assignment on a site. When somebody opens a preview link, they can watch the entire video and view questions, but their progress and grades won't be recorded.

  • How do I move a student to another class?

    If you’d like to move a student to a different class, you’ll need to remove them from their current class and invite them to the new one. However, this will delete the student's progress from their original class, which won't be transferred to the new 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 “Students.”
    4. Remove the student from the class.
    5. Go to the new class. Click the blue “Invite students” button on the right side of the page. 
    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 change a student's password or name?

    To reset a student's password or edit a student's name on Edpuzzle, follow these steps:

    Reset password
