Create Interactive Lessons Using EDpuzzle

“If you build it, they will come.” Will they, really? Now that you have created or curated great online lessons, how do you know your students understand the lessons or even watch them? EDpuzzle can help!

This easy and free tool promotes active learning by making any video interactive, whether you created it or found it online (think TEDtalks or any of the thousands of online resources). Instructors can incorporate questions and comments that students respond to at strategic points in the video lesson.  You can also track your students’ progress through the gradebook feature and give them feedback. EDpuzzle is a simple-to-use tool to increase accountability, engagement, and learning.


Progress Summary

Have your students ever asked, "Can I still pass this course?" and expect you to calculate the math for them?  Good news! Brightspace will do that for you.  Click User Progress in the NavBar, then click on any student's name.  You'll see their current average and their maximum and minimum possible average, if all remaining scores were 100% or 0% respectively.
