ED Puzzle

An interesting sounding free app for teachers -

If you use videos in your classroom yet would like to shorten them or make them a bit more specific to your class and needs, Edpuzzle might be a good resource for you.

This app helps you edit/crop videos to the segment you need; add your own voice-over to them so you can point out something that you might want to emphasize to your class; and you can even set up little quizzes that will give you data as to what individuals in your class are understanding, or not, from the presentation.

EDpuzzle also has a library of video offerings from other teachers that you might find useful to draw from.

Check out EDpuzzle and see how it works for you in your classroom.
