Last week I attended the 2015 Midwest Education Technology Conference and learned a lot! More than I have really had time to process, honestly. But one of the cool technology tools that I learned about was EDpuzzle, a tool that can be used to manipulate videos and make them into interactive lessons.
You can use EDpuzzle in 3 main ways:
- Crop a video to get right to the point and show only the part you want.
- Record over the existing video in your own voice.
- Embed questions into the video. The video will pause and give the students time to answer, then continue to let the students view and answer at their own pace.
All of the features of EDpuzzle are cool, but I found this last feature to be really amazing. Below is an example of a video I cropped (from 3:30 to 1:28) and added 2 questions to.
Here are some video directions for using EDpuzzle, OR shoot me an email and I will come and help you get started using it one-on-one.
