Playlist Support for Content Anytime

Prior to this enhancement, playlists were supported for Content Anytime via a manual process, so if Content Anytime subscribers wanted to use playlists, the playlists had to be uploaded to the system manually.

With this enhancement, playlists are now supported for Content Anytime by a reliable and automated solution, reducing content administration time and time-to-market. Playlists included in Content Anytime subscriptions will be automatically uploaded and updated within the system. Administrators can manage the visibility of these playlists using the Course Catalog, and learners can discover and interact with learning playlists as part of their learning journey within the learning management system (LMS).

Considerations

Playlists are delivered to the portal even if the portal does not currently utilize playlists. However, availability of playlists is configured by an administrator via the Course Catalog, allowing organizations to control whether learners can view and access playlists.

Implementation

This enhancement is automatically available for any portal with a Content Anytime subscription.
