How to assign a bulb to learners

Assigning a bulb to learners will save learner responses and data in the PlayPosit class to show engagement with the bulb content.

  1. Create a class by going to Classes, clicking Add New Class, and filling in the class name.
  2. You can then add learners to your class by following these instructions.
  3. Next, go to My Bulbs, click the bulb thumbnail or the triple dots icon next to the specific bulb and select Assign
  4. Set a due date and then click Link
  5. The default link will require learners to sign in to PlayPosit. If your learners are not already enrolled in your class, they will be automatically added to it.
  6. Click Copy if the default options are sufficient. 
  7. Otherwise, click Advanced Settings, select the toggles that you prefer (noticing the small changes in the link) and then click Copy:
  • Show Embed Code - gives HTML code you can use to embed the bulb on another site.
  • Assign for professional learning - If assigning professional learning bulbs outside of an LMS, you must toggle this on for teachers to take the bulb as a learner and for the data to save.
  • Do not require login - learners will not have to log in to PlayPosit to complete the bulb
  • Do not require learner name - learners will not have to enter their first and last name 
  • QR code - A QR code will be generated and shown on screen to share with learners. This QR code will change dynamically depending on what option toggles have been selected for the assignment. Click the image to copy the QR code into your clipboard for sharing.
