With more than 8,000 edtech products in use throughout K-12 schools (LearnPlatform Top 40 Report, 2021), differentiating products claiming to be research-based from those who can demonstrate their methods is essential. Since 2020, fewer than 1% have earned the Digital Promise Research-Based Design Product Certification. This third-party nonprofit seal of approval highlights edtech companies that have integrated research into the design and function of their products.
Edpuzzle is a digital platform that empowers educators to drive student engagement through video lessons and accompanying teacher-assigned tasks. Recently, they applied for their Digital Promise Research-Based Design Product Certification with the support and expertise of LXD Research behind them. We are mutually elated to confirm that Edpuzzle has earned its certification! We congratulate Edpuzzle, their team, and our LXD contributors whose efforts combined to achieve this milestone.
Edpuzzle sought LXD Research because of our team’s experience and rich perspectives, particularly regarding conducting an empirical evaluation of EdTech product design. Earning this certification required the submission of evidence demonstrating an alignment between the Science of Learning and principles integral to the design and classroom utility of Edpuzzle. Supporting research proved the importance of harnessing the power, fun, and support in video-based learning. An additional requirement of the certification process was ensuring that Edpuzzle’s research artifacts were published in a way that was easily accessible to the public.
