Manage Playlists

Playlists are collections of learning content curated by users with permission to create playlists. Playlists allow curators to easily share their knowledge with learners in a path-like format. Playlists can be created and accessed from Learner Home, Learning Search, and users’ Manage Playlists page. The Manage Playlists page allows users to view and manage playlists they have created, or to quickly open playlists they are following.

Note: The Private toggle must be OFF in order for playlists to be searchable and visible to other users.

To access the Playlists page, go to: Learning > Playlists. This link must be added to navigation tabs and links by an administrator.

Important: Learner Home must be enabled in the portal in order for playlist and external content functionality to be available.
