What is PlayPosit?

PlayPosit is an online software program that is built into Syracuse's Blackboard learning management service (LMS).

By integrating Youtube, Vimeo, and Syracuse's integration with Ensemble, this program helps create interactive videos that monitor student's understanding as they watch through questions, discussion boards, polls, and more. Facilitators and instructors can monitor interactions and participation and gather insightful feedback.

Why Do Instructors Use PlayPosit?

Interactive video is three times as effective as standard video - learners explore and apply new material at their own pace in a digital setting.

  • Effortless authorship - Our editing platform allows instructors to enrich video content with a variety of powerful interactions ranging from multiple-choice questions to graded fill-in-the-blanks.

  • Learner engagement - Interactive features mirror the traditional classroom experience and learners receive feedback to increase long-term retention, tripling learning efficacy over standard video.

  • Accountable tracking - Receive immediate, accessible data (both performance and behavior-based) to effectively remediate concepts, automatically assign grades, and address deficiencies.

  • Seamless workflow - Sync rosters, create and assign impactful video experiences, enrich your flipped classroom, and streamline tedious grading
