Edpuzzle- Another Video Assessment Option

Edpuzzle is a site that allows you to select a video and customize it by editing, adding questions/comments, and recording audio. Free and easy to use. Students would need to create an account to access videos. It seems to work easily on an iPad for creating a video assessment. Thanks to Janet for mentioning this great tool!
