Puzzel.org - Self-made Interactive Puzzles

If you always wanted to make your online modules more awesome and interactive, then the Puzzel.org LTI app is the app for your needs! :)

crossword puzzle

word search puzzle

It grants you the possibility to embed puzzles as assignments and provides an easy way to submit the puzzles by saving the puzzle as an image and then allow the students to upload it as a image file.

Improving the Puzzel.org flow

To improve the Puzzel.org interaction even more, it is possible to share a developer key/secret for your LMS environment with Puzzel.org, allowing it to submit assignments on behalf of the students. If you are interested in this, please contact me: daan@puzzel.org
