Why Use Edpuzzle?

Some things to consider before using this tool, rationale and reasoning for use.

How can using Edpuzzle benefit your classroom of online instruction?

Rationale 1:

Allowing students to learn at their pace by pausing and rewinding the lesson at their speed. 

Rationale 2:

Students answer questions along the way set by the instructor to check for understanding of the material.

Rationale 3:

Multiple Modalities is incorporated so that students may listen to the lesson or watch a demonstration.

Rationale 4:

The use of Edpuzzle incorporates the use of Universal Design for Learning by allowing students ease of access to materials on most devices and gives the instructor the ability to incorporate accommodations in the recording process. 

What does Edpuzzle do?


  • Edpuzzle allows instructors to record lectures, example videos, video tutorials and step by step examples of lesson content for all content areas. 

  • Instructors can upload a prerecorded lesson of their own into Edpuzzle to assign to students using the Flipped Classroom model.

  • Instructors can choose a YouTube video on their topic and insert it into Edpuzzle for students to engage with. 


  • Students can take the lessons via an Learning Management System (LMS), or Website at their leisure within perimeters set by their instructors. 

  • Students can create their own Edpuzzles as projects assigned by their instructors. 

Pro's and Con's to use.


  • Show students time on task.

  • Allow students to move at their own pace.

  • Validates share video content with questions.

  • Gives the ability to use and check answers for students understanding of the content. 


  • There is nothing to prevent students accessing shared content of instructors.

  • As there is a shuffle option for question answers, it is limited to only answers and not able to change questions per student. 

As the Con's allow students to possibly see the content, this should not be used as formal assessment, but as a checking for understanding assignment.
