Accessing the administrator dashboard

The administrator dashboard must be activated by the PlayPosit team. Once activated, launch your PlayPosit account from your LMS or login directly on www.playposit.com and navigate to the ADMIN tab.

Setting up the administrator dashboard

By default, the name of your institution will appear on the left and all instructors will be added under one tab. Email the PlayPosit team if you would like to add multiple tabs and organize instructors into sub-groups (school site, grade level, department, etc.).

Uploading instructors

To affiliate instructors with your institution, click Manage Licenses and complete the table. 

  • All instructor accounts entered here will be upgraded to premium
  • You can copy/paste formatted roster (< 100 instructors at a time) into the uploader
  • If instructors will access PlayPosit from a LMS, enter a placeholder password
  • Creating a password here will not override existing instructor credentials

Removing instructors

To downgrade and disassociate an instructor account from your institution:

  1. Check the box next to the name(s)
  2. Click Actions and Disable License

Moving instructors between schools

At the end of an academic year, instructors may move from one school site to another. To update your Admin Dashboard, click Manage Licenses and complete the table with the new school site. This will transfer the instructor from the previous institution tab.

Transparency for educators

As an admin, you automatically have full access to instructor and student accounts. Click Instructor Login to access all content and student data. 

Admin analytics 

Navigate to the Admin Analytics tab to view overall instructor activity per month.

Scroll down to track instructor usage with number of Bulbs Created and Last Login.

(b) Assign PD lesson to instructors

On the lesson thumbnail, click Assign and set a due date next to the PD_1 course.
