Upcoming PlayPosit and Canvas Workshops for Faculty

With the end of the semester coming up fast, we are offering two short workshops to help you wrap up your courses for the term. The first workshop focuses on getting the most out of PlayPosit by repurposing your current content for future courses. The second workshop concentrates on getting everything ready in Canvas for an easy transition to my.SMU.


PlayPosit: Repurpose, Reuse, & Upcycle Video Content

Repurpose existing content for a new use in your course (e.g., broadcast it!), Reuse video content already created, and Upcycle (modify it!) the resulting learning objects you’ve established to scale your impact and engage your learners.

PlayPosit is the ultimate instructional design studio to create an active learning experience by layering activities, websites, feedback, videos, questions, and more on top of video, audio, and text. After deployed, PlayPosit boasts jaw-dropping learning analytics to improve instruction and student success.
