Creating Interactive Videos/Bulbs

PlayPosit takes a passive experience, that of watching a video, and adds active learning components. Using the PlayPosit platform and a video streaming service like Panopto, Youtube, or Vimeo, a creator adds points of engagement to the video. These engagements can take the form of multiple choice or true/false questions, reflective pauses, polls, and discussions. An interactive video in PlayPosit terms is a "Bulb".
