Playlists: Creating and sharing playlists

CREATING AND SHARING PLAYLISTS

Create a "playlist" of tutorials that you plan to complete, or create a playlist to recommend to (share) with others.

1. Faculty can develop customized learning paths for their students by creating a "playlist" of videos and then can share course playlists with them in an email, as a link in D2L, or on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn. 

2. Students, faculty, and staff can create playlists for their own use.

3. Create and share playlists:

  • Go to the Profile dropdown near the top of the LyndaCampus window to select "My playlist." 
  • SPECIAL NOTE:  To allow OFF-CAMPUS access to a playlist, you MUST add this url to the front of the playlist's URL (with no spaces): http://www.ezproxy.dsu.edu:2048/login?url=    

For example:
http://www.ezproxy.dsu.edu:2048/login?url=http://www.lynda.com/SharedPlaylist/74933aad4dbb4297955be7aa18a0d098
