About Edpuzzle

Who we are

Do you love learning? Does the idea of working for an EdTech company that was born in Silicon Valley and has offices in Barcelona and San Francisco excite you? Then Edpuzzle might just be your perfect fit.

Used in over 80% of schools in the USA, Edpuzzle makes it easy for teachers to engage their students with interactive video lessons.

We’re a small team of talented creatives (many of us former teachers) who got our start back in 2013 at ImagineK12, the first education incubator in the USA and now part of Y Combinator, where Airbnb and Dropbox were born. We have fantastic support from our teachers and investors, who allow us to continue growing our Edpuzzle community every day.

What we do

We empower teachers to make any video their lesson with our easy-to-use video editing tools and beautiful, hassle-free analytics showing students’ results. In just a few clicks, teachers can turn any video into an engaging and effective lesson, and then see in real time which students understood the lesson and who needs help, thanks to the insightful student data Edpuzzle gathers.

Why we do it

We dream of a day where every teacher and student will be just a click away from an excellent online education, and we’re working to turn it into a reality. Together with the teachers in our Edpuzzle community, we’re creating a pool of incredible quality, inspiring video lessons for the classroom.
