Using Playlists


Playlists are online folders for gathering useful teaching resources, links, notes, photos, or other materials in one place. Unique to the person who creates it, a playlist can be used as anything from an ad-hoc lesson plan to a collection of bookmarks for a front-of-class ActiveBook



Playlists can be accessed from any part of ActiveLearn through the Plan menu.

When viewing a playlist, you can reorder added resources, upload your own, or add in links to useful websites.


Active playlists 

Setting a playlist as active will let you add resources directly to it from elsewhere in ActiveLearn.

Resources can be added to a playlist from Front-of-Class Search...


FOC Book Add to Playlist

The Playlists tool allows you to quickly scan through all of the linked resources in lesson plans, which are normally accessed through the Planner.
