EdPuzzle is a great platform to test for knowledge while students watch a video and learn remotely. We will be releasing new EdPuzzle videos regularly here on the blog so that your students can answer questions that are directly embedded within engaging videos. 

Note: You do NOT need to create an account to ACCESS EdPuzzle videos. But if you do create free teacher and student accounts, you will then be able to capture and save student responses. For more tips and tricks on how to best implement these videos in your classroom, check out NGPF Fellow James Redelsheimer’s blog post or Amanda Volz's Tech Tip video.
