Session Info:

Research supports the importance of student autonomy and intrinsic motivation to deep and transferable learning. Although many of us post videos in our online courses, we may be missing a valuable opportunity to engage students’ sense of wonder, curiosity, and autonomy through interactive video with an emphasis on ungraded interactions. In this session, I will show you how to take videos that are already in your courses such as instructor-created videos or OER content/videos you find on YouTube (Ted Talks, etc.), and add interactive elements, such as “Easter Egg” surprises, ungraded optional pop-ups, and inquiry-based pauses to increase learner engagement and spark inquiry. We will use PlayPosit, a tool embedded in Canvas that all California community college faculty have access to via a grant from CCC TechConnect. We will end the session with a goody bag from PlayPosit instructional designer Brady Venables, of easy-to-use step-by-step demonstrations to implement these ideas! All of the recommendations are available free of cost to CCC faculty.

Session Outcomes:

  • Apply principles of asynchronous learning and content-design related to student agency, inquiry, and sense of curiosity and wonder to interactive video learning objects.
  • Apply equitable grading assessment research to the creation of ungraded interactive video interactions.
  • Utilize supplied PlayPosit interactive video models and technical knowledge of the PlayPosit interactive video platform.
