Task 1: Class Creation and Best Practice for Adding Students

Go to Playposit and login through Office 365
Create a class and discuss adding students to the class

--Class Code – students sign in and search for class through a code

--Class URL – students sign in and are added to the class

  • Easiest way is to share a video and enable auto-enroll Learners to this class
  • Must Have a Class Created and share from within that class
  • When students sign in they are enrolled in your class
  • Future videos can just be assigned to the class

Task 2: Exploring Pre-Made Bulbs and Feedback

Explore the pre-made bulbs and copy one to your class

  • Bulbs in My Community are created by members of your school
  • Copied bulbs can be edited

View the feedback from the Playposit demo bulb you completed at the start

--Analysis (Monitor) 2 ways to get there

  • My Bulbs click on the 3 dots and choose Monitor
  • Click on your class and then the chart icon located next to each bulb
Monitor – shows feedback for the bulbs completed in your class

Explore the data from a completed bulb

Task 3: Bulb Creation

Find a video from Youtube and copy the link

Create a bulb in playposit and see where to paste that link

---You can also upload your own video content

---(PlayPosit Chrome Extension lets you pull video directly from many sources and even create video directly in PlayPosit)

Examine the process of adding questions to a video

  • Add at least 3 different types of questions

Task 4: Explore Bulb Settings and Sharing

Explore bulb settings – 3 dots in upper right-hand corner

  • Allow viewers to rewind during questions?
  • Retake the activity?

Discuss Share and Assign for activities

  • Once students are in a class you can share the bulb with them through a link
  • You can also just assign the bulb and they will see it when they log in

What does the student see when they log in?

Task 5: Install the Chrome PlayPosit extension

In a Chrome browser, go to and click the Add to Chrome button

Click Add to Chrome on the next screen and the PlayPosit icon will appear in your Chrome toolbar

This extension will allow you to add a video from ANYWHERE online, not just YouTube (Khan Academy, TEDEd, LearnZillion, etc.)

Navigate to a site that you use for instructional videos, like one of the ones listed above, and find a video that would go in one of the units you created in Task 1.

The PlayPosit icon will appear in the corner of the video. Click on the icon and PlayPosit will automatically move the video into PlayPosit. You must click the Upload icon at the top of the screen.

Task 6: Copy a Bulb from "My Community"

Find a video from "My Community" under "PreMade Bulbs"

Click on the Title and Copy bulb to your own

Go back to your own Bulbs

Click on the Three Dots to edit the already created bulb.

  • Click on the Title to rename it for your purpose.
