More Information

PlayPosit takes the passive experience of simply watching a video, and adds active learning components to make the same video an interactive experience. As the creator you will use the PlayPosit platform with integrated video streaming services such as Panopto, Youtube or Vimeo to add points of interaction to the videos you use in your course. These interactions will take the form of multiple choice or true/false questions, reflective pauses, polls, discussions and more. A “Bulb” is PlayPosit’s term for the interactive video you create.
