What is PlayPosit?

Syracuse University has a university license for PlayPosit, a tool for adding rich content and dynamic interactions to video. With it instructors can overlay video content hosted in YouTube, Vimeo, and Kaltura with a variety of tools for understanding viewer engagement and assessing viewer learning. You can see a short overview about it on YouTube. Additional documentation about PlayPosit at Syracuse is available on Answers
