Who we are

Edpuzzle is the easiest way for teachers to engage their students with videos. Over 15 million teachers and students around the world have already trusted us to help them in their classroom. We are a small team of very talented people distributed between San Francisco and Barcelona. We started over 4 years ago at ImagineK12, the first education incubator in the USA and now part of Y Combinator (where Airbnb and Dropbox were born). We are grateful for the support our teachers and investors give us every day.

What we do

We empower teachers to make any video their lesson with a combination of our simple video-editing tools and powerful analytics about their students' progress. Teachers can turn any video into an engaging and effective lesson with just a few clicks, adding questions, audio comments, etc. along the video. Finally, teachers can at all times know which students understand that lesson, who needs help, if there are any misconceptions about the material, etc. thanks to our automatically gathered insights about their students.
