Learning Management Systems
What is a Learning Management System (LMS)?
You may see the acronym “LMS” mentioned within our Help Center and in many other places throughout your education, particularly now with the rise of digital learning.
LMS stands for Learning Management System. Learning Management Systems are tools that schools use to administer, monitor, and track courses, lessons, grades, and more. Some of the most popular LMSs include Google Classroom, Microsoft Teams, Canvas, Schoology, Blackboard, and Moodle.
Edpuzzle offers integrations with several LMSs in order to help you and your teachers save time and effort when it comes to using Edpuzzle. What this means is that your teacher can connect their LMS to Edpuzzle to post assignments easily. It also means that you don’t need to leave your LMS (in most cases) to watch your assigned video lessons.
Edpuzzle currently integrates with the following:
- Google Classroom
- Microsoft Teams
Many of the above LMSs don’t require you to create an Edpuzzle account to view your lessons. Instead, you’ll watch your assigned videos right from your LMS, making it super easy for you to complete your assignments.
If you’re not sure where to find your Edpuzzle video lessons or how to complete them, ask your teacher for help!
Using Edpuzzle with your LMS
Edpuzzle offers integrations with several Learning Management Systems (LMSs) in order to help you and your teachers save time and effort when it comes to using Edpuzzle.
When your teacher has connected their LMS to Edpuzzle, video lessons will be posted to and viewed directly from the LMS.
To access the video lessons:
- Head to the assignment posting in your LMS.
- Open the assignment provided.
- Click the play button to start the video.
If you need to complete the assignment over multiple sessions or if you want to rewatch the video for review purposes, all you need to do is find the assignment again. Your progress and responses will be saved if you need to finish the assignment at a later time and after you’ve completed the assignment you can rewatch it as many times as you like.
