• How are my assignments organized?

    For students, assignments are grouped into two categories:

    Assignments

    This tab shows assignments that are currently active or due in the future. 

    There are two sections that fall under this category:

    • "In Progress" shows assignments that are currently active. It also shows assignments you haven't completed yet but whose due dates have passed.
    • "Upcoming Assignments" shows assignments that have start dates in the future. You can't access these videos before the start date.

    You’ll also be able to filter assignments by whether or not they have a due date. This will help you determine which assignments are the highest priority. To do this, click the buttons for “All,” “Due Date,” or “No Due Date.”

    Completed

    This tab shows the assignments that you've finished. You can go back and rewatch completed assignments at any time.

  • Can I complete an assignment in multiple sittings?

    If you need to take a break or maybe you ran out of time in class and need to complete your assignment later, you can!

    Edpuzzle will automatically save your progress and any submitted responses for your assignments, so if you need to exit the video and come back to it, you can pick up right where you left off each time you return.

    If you aren’t able to complete an assignment until after its due date, make sure to check with your teacher to see if they will accept the assignment late. Even if you’re able to continue watching the video and submit responses after the due date, your teacher’s policy on late work will decide whether or not they choose to give you full credit for the assignment.

  • How do I record an audio response?

    When answering an open-ended question, you may have the opportunity to record an audio response, rather than or in addition to a written response. 

    To do this:

      1. Click the microphone icon next to “Answer with audio” beneath the response text box.
        If your browser does not already have permission to use your computer’s microphone, you’ll need to grant it permission at this point. You’ll receive a prompt at the top of your browser if access needs to be granted. Follow the prompt to allow the use of your microphone.
      2. As soon as you click the microphone icon, your recording will begin. 
      3. To stop recording, click the red, blinking box.
      4. You can play back your audio response by clicking the play button to the left of your recording.
      5. If you aren’t happy with your response, click the trashcan icon on the right to delete it and then record a new response by clicking the microphone again.
      6. Once you’re done recording and satisfied with your answer, click “Submit” to move on in the video.

    Your teacher will decide whether or not to allow audio responses for each open-ended question. If you feel that responding with audio is a necessary accommodation for you, talk to your teacher about enabling this option.

    If you’re not sure if you should submit an audio response, a written response, or both, check with your teacher for instructions!

  • How do I turn on closed captioning or subtitles?

    Some videos on YouTube have subtitles or closed captions. If your video assignment has closed captions, you can enable them on Edpuzzle.

    To enable closed captions, follow these easy steps:

    1. Go to the video lesson you want to watch.

    2. Start playing the video.

    3. Click on the "CC" button to enable subtitles. Some videos have closed captions in multiple languages, so you can select the language of your choice.

    Note: Not all YouTube videos have closed captions or subtitles, which is why the "CC" button won't appear if these aren't available.

    If you need closed captions, ask your teacher to use YouTube's advanced search to filter videos with closed captions when they search for class videos.

  • How can I redo my assignment?

    At the moment, you can only have one attempt at the questions during a video lesson, but we do offer an option for teachers to reset your progress at any point before or after you’ve completed the assignment.

    If you'd like to redo the assignment, you can ask your teacher if they would reset your progress. Resetting your progress will erase your initial attempt at the assignment so that you can try again. 

    If you want to change your answer to an open-ended question or include more detail in any of your responses, check with your teacher to see how they would like to handle this situation. Progress can only be reset for an entire assignment and not for individual questions within a video.

    Once your progress is reset, we can’t recover the grade or responses from your first attempt so make sure that you’re ready to rewatch all of the video and answer all questions again before asking your teacher about this.

    If your teacher needs help resetting your progress, they can find instructions here.

  • How do I view my teacher's comments?

    In Edpuzzle, your teacher can comment on your response to any question in order to provide clarifying information, feedback, or helpful tips to move your learning forward.

    To view your teacher’s comments:

    1.  Go to the assignment again.
      - If you log into Edpuzzle directly to complete your assignments, log into your account as usual, locate the correct class from the list of classes on the left-hand side of your page, go to the “Completed” tab, and then select the assignment.
      - If you access your assignments from an LMS (like Canvas, Schoology, Blackboard, etc.) access the assignment again from the LMS, as you would normally.
    2. Click the blue “Show Results” button.
    3. Scroll down to view all questions and submitted responses.
    4. Your teacher’s comments on a question will appear right below it with their name and a timestamp.
    5. If you’d like to respond to their feedback, just click the word “Comment” below your teacher’s comment. They will be able to see your comment right from their Edpuzzle account.

     

    Note: Comments cannot be edited or deleted. So, make sure that you’re careful about what you write here before submitting a comment to your teacher.

     

  • How do I complete a student project?

    Student projects are an opportunity to create your own Edpuzzle video lesson. When your teacher assigns a student project it will appear with all your other assignments for that class. When you view the assignment, you’ll see the project goal, special instructions from your teacher, and the start and due dates (if any).

    When you’re ready to start the project, click the “Start project” button. Then choose where to find the video you want to use from the options provided. You can search our library of videos or copy and paste a specific YouTube video link into the search bar at the top of the page.

    Here’s how to create your project using either option:

      1. Browse through the videos provided or copy and paste a specific video link from YouTube into the search bar at the top of the page. 
      2. To choose a video for your project, click on the video to view it and then click “Use for this project” in the bottom right-hand corner.
      3. Use the editor to cut the video as needed and add questions and/or notes.
      4. When you’re done, click the “Finished” button at the top of your page. 
      5. To submit the project, click the “Turn in” button at the bottom of the page. 
      6. If you need to make any final changes before submitting, click the “Edit” button to continue working.

    Once you’ve turned in your project your teacher will grade your work.

  • How does Live Mode work?

    With Edpuzzle's Live Mode feature, your teacher can project a video lesson live in front of the whole class while you and your classmates answer the questions in real-time on your own devices.

    To enter a Live Mode session, log in to your Edpuzzle account and go to your class. This will automatically take you to your Live assignment. (If you access your Edpuzzle assignments from an LMS like Canvas, Schoology, Blackboard, etc. just go to the assignment as you would normally.) 

    You’ll be in a holding space until all of your classmates have joined and your teacher starts the video, then the video will play on the projector screen. You will not be able to join after your teacher has started the video so make sure that you join when instructed and communicate with your teacher right away if you’re having any trouble.

    The questions will appear on your screen as well as on the projector screen. Answer the questions when prompted. When all students have answered a question, your teacher will decide when to move forward. 

    When the assignment is over, or your teacher has decided to stop the lesson, they will close the Live session for the whole class.

    When a Live session is ended before the video is complete, you can continue on your own later by accessing the assignment as you would normally. All of the progress you made watching the video as a group will be saved so you can pick up where you left off. Make sure to check with your teacher to see if you should complete the assignment on your own time or if they have other plans!

    Note: At the moment, Live Mode isn't compatible with the Android app. If you’re using a smartphone or tablet, try using a mobile web browser rather than the Edpuzzle app for Live sessions.

  • I can't find my assignment.

    If you already have an Edpuzzle account and it's your first time completing an assignment, follow these steps:
