Playlist Center: lynda.com made you a mixtape

Playlist_Center_Hero

Who doesn’t love getting a mixtape? It means someone cares about you. At lynda.com, we care about your learning—so we made you more than 100 mixtapes.

Check out the new lynda.com Playlist Center, where you’ll find carefully tailored playlists, or compilations of courses, that guide you through a variety of learning topics.

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.

Introducing lynda.com playlists

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.

Add courses to your playlists

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.

Accessing your playlists from the lynda.com home page

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.

Managing playlists

Managing playlists on lynda.com

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:
