Align Course Standards with Ease by Using PlayPosit

When building or reviewing a course, it can be difficult ensuring that all standards are covered.

At PlayPosit, we designed our platform with pedagogy at its core and because of this, using PlayPosit in your course aligns to several course standards.

To make things easier, we’ve created a table using the Open SUNY Course Quality Review Standards (OSCQR) and highlighted how each standard aligns to PlayPosit along with further documentation.
