PlayPosit for Employee Training: Management and Tracking
Transparently track usage and understand impact in real-time.
Cherry Creek is one of the highest-achieving districts in Colorado.
Assigning, managing and tracking federal and state compliance trainings for Cherry Creek’s 9,000+ employees was an exceedingly time intensive and complex process for their HR team—as it had been administered through emailing series of videos and online quizzes.
With PlayPosit, Cherry Creek is able to easily deliver one-click, single sign-on training assignments to each employee while leveraging our API to get comprehensive data on staff usage and completion into their HR System.
PlayPosit allows for staff trainings to be managed with a fraction of the effort while providing richer analytics that better validate completion and compliance.
written by Rachelle Dene Poth (@Rdene915) Over the past few years, I have looked for new, innovative ways for integrating technology into my classroom. I started by focusing on areas that I thought could improve the learning experiences and opportunities for my students. We took small steps together, slowly adding new tools. We started with a messaging app and an LMS to open up communication and bridge the “disconnect” that I felt was occurring. We then tried different assessment and presentation tools, to have more personalized learning and for students to have choices.

The D.C. based 1776 rewarded PlayPosit with $100K in investment for taking first prize in the education category. The very same week, the team travelled to Philadelphia for the Milken Penn GSE competition where they won the McGraw Hill Open Ed award and earned a $15,000 grant.
As the 1776 website describes, the competition aims to "identify the most promising start ups in the world tackling the biggest challenges" in the health, education, energy, and smart cities categories. Last week, the winners from cities all over the world convened in Washington D.C. to compete in the national and international finals for their respective categories. After winning the domestic category (and being guaranteed a 50K investment), PlayPosit went head to head against the Iraeli based Lingua.ly - an impressive language learning application with 130000 d…
How PlayPosit is Revolutionizing Online Courses
Why PlayPosit is becoming instructors’ go-to for their interactive video needs in distance learning courses
The way we see and absorb educational information is changing more now than it ever has before. Traditional 800-page textbooks are being swapped out for PDFs that students can access on their iPads or smartphones; homework now takes shape through online discussion posts rather than take-home worksheets; teachers gauge student engagement through text-in polls that show statistical breakdown of students’ comfort with a lesson’s content.
The list of technological innovations that are taking shape within -- and forever changing -- the traditional classroom goes on and on.
This is perhaps most true in online classrooms: the newer, more innovative learning environment that schools across the globe are readily implementing, especially at the higher education level. Instructors of distance learning classes are quickly turning to interactiv…
