How and Why To Create a YouTube Playlist

What is a YouTube Playlist

“Do you have a group of videos that you like? Maybe it’s a gym mix that really gets you moving or the funniest clips of your favorite comedians. Put them in a playlist and you can watch them anywhere, whenever you want” (YouTube).

  • Viewer playlists – organise your favourite videos and share. No creation of videos is required, you are just grouping together useful resources to share.
  • Creator playlists – if you create videos it provides a way to organise videos into topics and for viewers to find them.
  • Organised into subject content, theme or whatever you choose.
  • Videos are organised in a legal format for yourself and others to view.
  • Can embed into a website or resource.
  • YouTube can provide analytics.

It’s basically a repository of resources you find helpful and interesting, that others may also find beneficial.
