Now you can share playlists!

We hope you have had a chance to organize courses you want to watch into playlists. We’ve expanded this feature, and now you can share your playlists too (and create an unlimited number of playlists!). Give your playlist a name and description, and then email a link to your friends and colleagues or post it to Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn. Share playlists to help others follow the same path, recommend a list, or to show what you’ve accomplished.

Creating a playlist

Get started by creating a new playlist. Make sure you’re logged in to your account, and then add courses to a new or existing playlist 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.

Sharing a playlist

Go to your playlists page by selecting playlists from my courses in the black bar at the top of any lynda.com page. Choose which playlist you want to share, and then click edit near the playlist name to add an optional description for the people you’re sharing it with.

Check the box next to share and we’ll generate a unique public URL for your playlist.

Decide to share your playlist and generate a unique URL for it

Then choose how you want to share your playlists: use the email, link, Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn icon to share your playlist with your friends and colleagues.

Share your playlist in an email, with a link, or on your social network

Receiving a playlist

Click the playlist link, either from an email or a link posted on a social network. If you’re already a member of lynda.com, simply save this playlist or add some of the courses to a different playlist.

Save the playlist and start learning!

If you aren’t a lynda.com member, start a free trial to save the playlist and start learning right away.

You can find your saved playlists by selecting playlists from my courses in the black bar at the top of any lynda.com page.

Find you playlists in the my courses menu

Once you save a playlist, you can reprioritize the courses in that playlist, remove courses, and even add more courses. Check out this blog post for more information about managing your playlists.

Get started watching the courses in your playlists right away—and pass on the playlist to your friends and colleagues who might be interested in the same courses. Or, recommend a different playlist you’ve created.

To learn more about sharing playlists, watch Garrick Chow demonstrate how to share, receive, and save a playlist in the video Sharing your playlists from the How to use lynda.com course.
