How to Create and Subscribe to YouTube Playlists

Putting together collections of YouTube videos can be a good way to provide students with review material related to units of study in your classroom. The easiest way to do this is to create YouTube playlists that you then embed into the sidebar of your classroom blog. The video embedded below shows you how to create a YouTube playlist.

To embed a playlist into a blog or website open the Share menu associated with a playlist then copy the embed code provided.

If you are playing a video within a playlist on YouTube you can find the embed code for the playlist below the video that you are currently watching.

My playlist of Practical Ed Tech tips is embedded below.

An additional method for getting students to watch the playlists that you create for them is to ask them to subscribe to your YouTube channel. This option is only available if your students have YouTube accounts of their own.
