• How do I join a class?

    If you're trying to join a new class, there are a few ways to do it.

    If you’re logged into your Edpuzzle account and your teacher gave you a class code:

      1. Click the plus sign (+) next to “My Classes” in the menu on the left-hand side of your page. 
      2. Enter the class code given to you by your teacher in the pop-up window that appears.
      3. Click "Find class."
      4. When your class's name appears, click the "Join class" button and you'll be enrolled.

    If you don’t have an Edpuzzle account and your teacher is using an open class:

      1. Head to edpuzzle.com.
      2. Click “Open class” at the top of your page.
      3. Enter the class code provided by your teacher and then click the “Find class” button.
      4. Enter your name in the “Nickname” field and then click the “Join open class” button. Once you’ve joined the class you’ll see any assignments posted for you to complete.

    In either of the above circumstances, if your teacher has given you a link to join the class, rather than a class code, simply follow that link to join their class.

    If your teacher uses Google Classroom to connect to Edpuzzle:

    You don't need a class code. Instead, you'll be enrolled automatically, as long as you're logged into Edpuzzle using the same email that's connected to your Google Classroom account.

     

    Note: If your teacher uses another Learning Management System (LMS), like Canvas or Schoology, you will always access your Edpuzzle assignments from that LMS and not by joining a class on edpuzzle.com. If you’re not sure where to find your assignments, ask your teacher for help!



  • How do I find my class code?

    If you don't know your class code for Edpuzzle, don’t worry! There are two ways to get into the class:

    1. If your teacher shared a link or an embedded video with you, simply click on it and click the “Join” button when the pop-up window opens.
    2. If you don't have a link or video, you’ll need to ask your teacher or a classmate for the class code. Here’s where that code can be found:
      • Teachers: By clicking the blue "Invite Students" button on the “Class members” tab for the class.
      • Classmates: When viewing the class in Edpuzzle, in the upper right-hand corner.

    Note: If your teacher uses Google Classroom, Microsoft Teams, or Clever with Edpuzzle, you won't need a class code because you’ll be automatically enrolled in their Edpuzzle class from that LMS. If you’re being prompted for a class code, double-check that you are logging into Edpuzzle with the same email address you use for your LMS.

  • How does an open class work?

    When your teacher uses an open class it means that you can join the class and access their assignments without having to create your own Edpuzzle account.

    To invite you to their open class, your teacher will give you a class code or link.

    When you have a class code:

      1. Head to edpuzzle.com.
      2. Click “Open class” at the top of your page.
      3. Enter the class code provided by your teacher and then click the “Find class” button.
      4. Enter your name in the “Nickname” field and then click the “Join open class” button. Once you’ve joined the class you’ll see any assignments posted for you to complete.

    When you have a class link:

      1. Follow that link to find the class.
      2. Enter your name in the “Nickname” field and then click the “Join open class” button.
        Once you’ve joined the class you’ll see any assignments posted for you to complete.

    Unless your teacher instructs you to do otherwise, make sure to use your real name when asked for a nickname. This is so that your teacher can identify who has completed their assignments and so that you can get the appropriate credit for your work.

    To leave the class, click the “Leave Class” button at the top of your page. Keep in mind that because you’re not creating an Edpuzzle account, each time you exit and then re-enter the same class you will be entering fresh. This means that if you leave the class in the middle of an assignment you will not be able to pick up where you left off if you need to return later.

  • What does it mean when a class is archived?

    When a class is archived, this will tuck it away in a separate section of your “My Classes” menu so that you can focus only on your current, active classes. 

    A class being archived also means that you can view assignments from within that class, but you will no longer be able to complete those assignments or submit responses for any assignments you hadn’t finished.

    Classes can only be archived by the teacher of that class. If a class has ended and you don’t wish to have the class visible within your active classes, talk to your teacher about the possibility of archiving it. If they need some help, they can find instructions for arching classes here.

  • I'm a student. How do I leave a class?

    If you're in the wrong class or you want to leave a class that's not active anymore, you'll need to ask the teacher of that particular class to help you with this.
