David Paradis, a faculty member in the History department, used PlayPosit in his online and face-to-face courses, using both Canvas and D2L. David used in-video quizzing to present lecture materials asynchronously before class to better understand what concepts the students find confusing and to create more time within the class for students to engage in active learning. David pre-recorded his lectures as screencasts; layered reflective pause, text response, and multiple-choice questions upon the video lectures for the student to complete; and students watched the video lectures and completed the in-video quizzes before the class. Students discussed the content in small groups in class as well as through online discussions.
Chris Koehler used PlayPosit in Desire2Learn for his ASEN 1969 Pathway to Space course, made up of roughly 170 students. PlayPosit allowed him to remove lectures from the in-class experience and allow for more active learning activities. The main content for this course was presented by 28 experts in their fields. These experts recorded topical video lectures, called 'Video Capsules", with predominantly multiple choice and text response question types layered upon the lectures. Before each class period, students were responsible for watching the guest lecturers' video capsules and completing the in-video quizzes. After class, all in-video quiz responses were graded and the score were passed back to D2L Grade Items.
Cheryl Pinzone's EBIO 1210-300E: General Biology 1 course was taught through Continuing Education. Cheryl used videos with captions to present content. Then layered questions upon videos to reinforce main concepts and as a check in to see if the students understood each lesson. She used the analytics captured through the PlayPosit interface to see which concepts the students were struggling with, developed asynchronous discussion forums based on concepts that needed review, and then held synchronous Zoom meetings to discuss points of confusion among her students.
