Schoology has been undergoing a lot of changes recently, integrating with more apps, and partnering with other companies (some for better or worse, but we’ll get to that later). Edpuzzle has always been able to be embedded as an assignment material in Schoology by using the embed code. But now, there is an Edpuzzle LTI app that can be installed and linked to your Edpuzzle account so that all of your Edpuzzle classes and videos can be assigned to your Schoology classes. Pretty cool! It does take some steps to set up, but once you do, you won’t have to do it again.
Here’s how to do this. First, go to the app center in Schoology –>
–> then scroll down and locate the Edpuzzle app –> click on the app and then click to “install app” –> you will be prompted to agree or disagree to allowing Edpuzzle to connect with your Schoology account (this is OK) –> on the proceeding window checkmark every class you would like to attach this feature to then scroll to the bottom and click “install”.
Ok, so now that we installed the app across our classes the Edpuzzle icon should appear in your left navigation of each course. Next, you’ll need to go to Edpuzzle (open a new tab but leave the Schoology one open) and sign-in to your account –> Click on your profile in the upper right corner –> then click on your name –> click the “school” tab –> then scroll to the bottom and click on the LMS integration dropdown button and select “Schoology”.
Two codes will open: 1 called the Consumer Key and 1 called the Shared Secret. Leave this window open and return back to Schoology.
Go to one of your Schoology courses –> under your course image click “course options” –> select “external tool providers” –> you should see 2 Edpuzzle integrations in the list, select the one with the greyed out “x”. In the window the opens, you’ll need to enter the consumer key and shared secret from your Edpuzzle window that we left open in another tab then click submit.
Once you do this, you’ll want to follow this procedure for each of your courses. After that you are set to use the tool. Here’s how:
Click to “add material” –> select Edpuzzle from the right side of the window that opens –> it should locate all your videos –> select a video to “watch” –> then after the video opens click “assign”. The assignment will appear in Schoology!
You can now track student completion, see question responses, edit video settings, go LIVE, and add grades to your Edpuzzle assignments.
