PlayPosit for Students
PlayPosit takes a passive experience, like watching a video, and makes it more interactive for you as the learner! The interaction is created throughout the video and varies from multiple choice questions, true/false statements, reflective pauses, polls, and discussions. It gives you an opportunity to engage in the video, while reflecting on your gained knowledge from the lesson.

Where is PlayPosit found?
If your course is using PlayPosit, bulbs should be found in the D2L course site either embeded in content or directly linking to PlayPoist. It is recommended that you access PlayPosit through D2L or the link provided by the instructor.
Try a bulb and see how your instructor might use it in class!
Completion of the bulb
At the end of bulb, you will see a "Review and Submit" box on the right-side of the bulb window. If you do NOT see this window, you have not completed the bulb and its entirety. There may be multiple videos in one bulb, or questions that you skipped or didn't answer.
Depending on the question type, some questions are graded immediately upon answering, while some may require the instructor to review it and give points. Questions that are not auto-graded may appear as "0" in the "Review and Submit" pop-up and/or in the D2L gradebook.
Refer to the chart below to see what question types are automatically graded and which ones are not.

Fun Extra Knowledge about PlayPosit as a Learner
Print out the Questions and Responses
After completing a bulb, you have the ability to view a pdf of all the questions and your responses. You may save and/or print out the pdf to use as reviewing material for the course.
After answering questions, you may go back to that question and explain your choice in the explanation box found underneath the question on the left-side window. Any text written in the explanation box will be seen by the instructor and also saved into the "View PDF" mode.
It is recommended to have 1 to 2 Mbps for ideal streaming, even though, YouTube only requires 0.5 Mbps for streaming. A slower connection speed may cause the bulb to seem buggy.
