Additional Details and Research:
- “EDpuzzle is a site that allows users to select a video and customize it by editing, cropping, recording audio, and adding questions to make an engaging presentation or lesson.” (www.techlearning.com/news/0002).
- “You can crop any YouTube, Khan Academy, Learn Zillion, Vimeo or other video, insert your own audio notes, narrate over the video, and best of all, insert questions at any point in the video to create quizzes multiple choice or short answer quizzes” (Valle, EdTechReview, Jan. 2015).
- Some additional Edpuzzle testimony from Ruth Valle, a high school Spanish teacher: “In my classes I can now assign students to watch edited videos and collect data. My students can watch the videos over and over again until they feel comfortable that they can answer the questions correctly.

- A very useful function EDpuzzle offers is a Chrome extension. Once it is downloaded on the computer, every time one opens a YouTube video, there is an option to “edit with EDpuzzle.” A teacher can then decide to crop it, insert notes, record over the entire video, and/or insert questions for students to answer. The video is then saved on EDpuzzle and ready to be assigned to different classes, which are easily created by providing students with a join code. This allows teachers to receive their students’ results for grading…”
