There is no shortage of video in the world. According to YouTube, there is more that 100 hours of video uploaded to the platform ever single minute. With this huge amount of video out there, it seems like this would be an excellent source for educators. However, the huge amount of video is both a huge resource and a huge problem at the same time. It is difficult to weed through, much less make use of the huge mountain of content. That’s where EDpuzzle comes in. We had a chance to ask the team a few questions about their product:
What is EDpuzzle?
EDpuzzle is a YouTube for the classroom. We combine simple video-editing tools with powerful analytics so that a teacher can take a video and make it personal, engaging and effective.
Who is the platform for?
Educators. Any person that want to use videos as a pedagogical tool can use EDpuzzle. We have a wide spectrum of users, from kindergarden teachers, MBA professors or even doctors in hospitals.
What makes Edpuzzle different than what is currently available?
We are a video-platform 100% focused on education. We offer content flexibility with the video-editing tools. Teachers can make any video their lesson. Besides, we offer beautiful and powerful analytics to track each student in the classroom.
Why did you get involved in the Ed-Tech space?
For several years I was a Math teacher in Barcelona. I flipped my classroom with more than 300 video lessons. Thanks to the precious help of my co-founders we decided to build a hassle free platform for teachers that want to use videos in the classroom (just like me).
