Questions & Answers
Q: If I assume a PlayPosit activity but don’t want to make it an ‘assignment’ in canvas, can I find a list of who’s actually viewed it?
A: You are correct. You will always have access to our analytics page. Here is more information: https://knowledge.playposit.com/article/210-monitoring-bulbs-in-playposit-3-0
Q: If we need information about how to get started from the very beginning do we need to contact TechConnect?
A: Great question! You can always visit https://ccctechconnect.zendesk.com/ or email email@example.com if you have any questions about getting started. I would also suggest talking to your Canvas admin.
Q: What is the relationship between PlayPosit and TechConnect?
A: PlayPosit and TechConnect have established a partnership through a grant from the Chancellor’s Office.
Q: Some of us have combined sections in Canvas. Is there a way, without creating multiple separate PlayPosit videos, for each section to respond with notes or comments without seeing students from other sections? This is a FERPA issue and Canvas Studio itself can’t be made section-specific in combined sections.
A: Great question! You will be able to assign bulbs to multiple separate sections. Student notes are private between an instructor and student. Here is more information about student notes: https://knowledge.playposit.com/article/212-the-student-experience-3-0
