Edpuzzle opens up Youtube to schools


EDpuzzle.com has opened up their program so that embedded Youtube video will not be filtered out by school filters as long as Edpuzzle.com is whitelisted by your IT department.

According to an email from cofounder Quim Sabrià’s, “EDpuzzle empower teachers to use YouTube videos in their schools even if it’s blocked. The reason behind is that if a teacher considers a video appropriate, that lesson shouldn’t be blocked. Teachers know what is best for their students.”

This is welcome news as many of the video I attempted to embed assessment in by using Edpuzzle were blocked by my district.  Try out Edpuzzle.com , just sign–in with your G+ account and in no time you will have a fun new video/assessment tool for your classroom.
