Video Quizzes

Videos are a great tool for teaching but if not used properly they can be a waste of time. These days if there is a video I really want students to see and learn from I do not show it in class,  instead I assign it as homework. How can I do this? It is due to a great free tool I discovered at the EdSurge Summit. The tool is called EdPuzzle and it allows you to upload your videos or search for a video (youtube etc...) and customize it. You can edit the length, add captions and add questions/quizzes. It also tracks who viewed the video, and you can choose to block fast forwarding.  It then creates great reports for each video. It is easy to set up and to add your students via a class code (they need to create an account but emails are not required).
