A Powerful Tool
Online learning was definitely challenging, and we all hope our in-person interactions continue to make up the majority of our days with students. By the same token, teaching online had us fully appreciate the power of video as an instructional tool, both for direct teaching and for flipped classroom approaches.

A tool like Edpuzzle allows you to enhance the learning experience by ensuring that students are interacting with the video content you selected or created as they go, and not just passively watching it. You can even prevent skipping!

Bonus: Using Edpuzzle is a dream with Google Classroom! You can easily create interactive video lessons for your students and integrate right into it; here is how.
