In this article

PlayPosit 3.0 introduces a streamlined navigation sidebar that contains all of a user's functions, whether instructor, admin, or student. 

My Bulbs

Create new bulbs, or edit, assign, share, monitor, copy, or delete existing bulbs. If users have bulbs in the previous environment, also known as Classic View, they may also copy their bulbs from the previous environment to PlayPosit 3.0.


Create or delete classes, upload student rosters, share class enrollment links, and monitor student responses for bulbs assigned to those classes.

Click on:

  • Add New Class to create a new section and set a custom folder color
  • the Bulbs icon to see a list of all bulbs assigned to a class
  • the Gradebook icon to see the overall student gradebook for a class
  • the Learners icon to see the list of students enrolled in a class
  • the triple dots icon to Edit or Archive an existing class.

Premade Bulbs

See bulbs built by other PlayPosit users! For Institutional clients, search for bulbs within your organization.

Select your institution (for institutional clients only) or All PlayPosit

Click Search and fill out the information you are looking for to narrow your search down. Search by Keyword, Creator Last Name, Tags, Target Audience, Subject, or YouTube URL. Once you have all the information you want to search for, click Filter

Note: The more filters you add, the less results you will see. If you don't see enough results, try clearing out some of the filters or search for a different keyword.

Once you find a bulb that you are looking for, click the triple dots and select  Preview to view the bulb, Export Worksheet to view all interactions within the bulb, or Copy to add the bulb into your library.

Take a look at this quick screencast to see a premade bulb search in action! 


In order to give users a way to quickly pull interesting and well-crafted bulbs from the rest of PlayPosit's user base, PlayPosit automatically calculates a bulb's rigor (between 1 and 5 stars) using the number and quality of interactions present in the bulb, views and copies made of the bulb, and a couple other factors.

Classic View

Users who have previously created content in Classic View will see the option to return there. For more information, please view this help article.

Administrator Dashboard

The admin dash is given to administrators who have an institutional license. The admin dash allows the admin to view all instructor accounts, the institution's media library, data, and much more. To learn more, click here
