Do you want your video content to actively support your teaching? Are you looking for a way to track student engagement with video assignments? Would you like be able to structure video lessons to improve student learning?
This interactive video tool allows you to customize the student experience by layering your own custom lesson (quiz questions, text prompts, images, etc.) over video content. Using video from YouTube, Kaltura or other sources, you can add images, text, or a variety of quiz questions, share the lesson with your students for completion, and then monitor student activity and engagement through the analytics collected by the platform. PlayPosit also allows you to incorporate feedback and can be an excellent platform for formative assessment.
As more courses employ flipped tutorials and other online video content for instruction and assessment, our campus will increasingly need a tool to easily create interactive video lessons and gather data regarding student activity and engagement. CU Boulder’s Massive Open Online Courses can harness a proprietary in-video quiz software from Coursera, but that technology is not available to our campus at large. While OIT’s VoiceThread service meets some of these needs, VoiceThread is better suited for highly interactive and open-ended verbal discussions around various media and is less suited for use with video.

In Fall 2015, the ATDT began an isolated pilot of one promising interactive video tool, Zaption, in the redesign of Introduction to Engineering (COEN 1500), an 800 student hybrid course. Based on our successes, we expanded this pilot in Spring 2016 to include a large (800 student) BCOR course out of Leeds School of Business taught by Mike Willis as well as PSYC 2145 (94 students) and PSYC 2606 (15 students) taught by Shaw Ketels. While the Spring 2016 pilots were successful, that specific tool is no longer available to educators. We are now excited to further explore PlayPosit as a solution for the CU Boulder campus.
