We’ve just added a new playlist feature on lynda.com that lets members create multiple lists of courses. Members can now build as many as 10 playlists, with the queue acting as the primary playlist.
Use playlists to set and manage learning goals. For example, if you want to master Photoshop, you might create a playlist of Photoshop and design courses to help you reach that goal. Or, create multiple playlists to organize courses already in your queue.
To start, log in to your lynda.com account. Add a course to one or more of your playlists from the flyout menu on the + button. Create new playlists on the spot when you select add to a new playlist… from the flyout menu or select go to playlists to view and manage all of your playlists.
Once you’re logged in, access the courses in your playlists from the my courses area on the lynda.com homepage. If you have multiple playlists, the dropdown menu will show them all. Select a playlist, and you’ll see the first five courses in that playlist. Click view all to go the playlists page, which includes your queue and all your playlists. You can also navigate to the playlists page from my courses in the top navigation bar on any lynda.com page.
On the playlists page you can see all of your playlists, create a new playlist, and reorganize the courses in your playlists. To reprioritize the courses in a playlist, click on a course, drag it, and then drop it where you like. Or grab a course, drag it, and then drop it in to a different playlist.
To learn more and to see playlists in action, watch lynda.com author Garrick Chow demonstrate how to add, find, and manage your playlists in our how-to video:
Let us know what you think of playlists by posting in the comments section below, or contact us via the site feedback button in the bottom right corner of every lynda.com page.
