  Creating Playlists

A Playlist is a customized list of segments and/or video titles that you create. Each playlist will create a specific URL which you can then play in class, email to your students, or add to e360. To create a playlist, first create a User Log In (see above). 

  • To add a video to the playlist, click on the .  Then name your playlist and Add.
  • You can add specific video segments or whole video titles to a playlist.
  • View your playlists by selecting the My Playlists tab at the top
  • Make sure to get the playlist URL located in the "Title URL" box located in the bottom, left of the screen if you are going to send it in an e-mail or add video URLs in e360. (Do not use the URL at the top of your browser.) Click here for a video on permalinks. 
  • If you are emailing the link, it is a good idea to email the link to yourself first. Then you can use your email client (Outlook, yahoo, gmail, etc.) to forward the link. This will enable you to use any of your contact lists and the sent email will appear in your sent items folder. 
  • If you are adding the URL link to e360, you may need to add the Proxy prefix to the beginning of the URL. If you see the prefix "http://proxy.cvtc.edu/login?url=in front of the URL, you can just copy and paste the link as is.

  • You will be prompted to either add to an existing folder, or create a new favorites folder.

  • On this tab, you can create folders, rename folders and delete folders.
