PlayPosit – Create your Account

Rutgers MediaSpace, powered by Kaltura, and Kaltura integrated in Canvas are integrated into PlayPosit.  Users can create learning experiences around previously recorded videos from MediaSpace.

To create a PlayPosit account associated with the Rutgers license, course instructors will need to launch PlayPosit in Canvas first.  When you are creating a bulb and choose to add a Kaltura video to your bulb, you will see your Kaltura videos.
