How do I use playlists?

What is a playlist?

An Edpuzzle playlist is a collection of video lessons that are grouped together to create one assignment. 

Creating a playlist

    1. Click on the blue "+ Add Content" button at the top of your screen and select “Create playlist” from the drop-down menu that appears.
        • Alternatively, you can click on the “Create playlist” button towards the top of your screen when in your My Content library.
    2. Enter a name for your playlist in the “Playlist name” field.
    3. Click the “Next” button at the top of your page.
    4. Select the videos you want to add to the playlist by checking the box beneath each video thumbnail.
    5. Click the “Create playlist” button at the top of your page to confirm your selections.
    6. You can reorder the videos in the playlist by clicking the two lines to the left of the video and then dragging and dropping the video where desired.
    7. By default, the overall thumbnail for the playlist will be the thumbnail for the first video in the sequence. To change the playlist thumbnail to that of a different video in the playlist, click the ellipsis (...) to the right of the video thumbnail you’d like to use instead and select “Set as playlist thumbnail” from the drop-down that appears.

After a playlist has been created, you can assign it just as you would any other video lesson.

Using “Set order”

When creating an assignment that uses a playlist, you can decide whether or not you’d like your students to watch the videos in order.

When “Set order” is toggled “ON,” this means that students must watch the videos in this playlist in the order you’ve set. Students will not be able to advance to the next video in the sequence until they submit the video they’re currently viewing.

When “Set order” is toggled “OFF,” this means that students can watch the videos in this playlist in any order, but they are required to complete one video before moving on to another.

You can adjust the “Set order” setting for an assignment at any time by going to the assignment view and using the toggle switch on the right side of the screen.

Playlist grading

Grades for each video in an assigned playlist are combined and averaged to produce an overall grade for that playlist assignment (this is the grade you’ll see in your Gradebook). However, you can still drill down into the progress and grades for each video in the playlist by going to the “Videos” tab in the assignment view.
