YouTube is full of handy little features that many people don’t notice or use. One of those features is the option to collaboratively create playlists of videos. In the video embedded below I demonstrate how to collaboratively create a playlist of videos.
Applications for Education
There a lot of great educational content on YouTube. The challenge that many teachers and students have is finding and keeping track of it all. Turn on the collaboration feature when you start a playlist and work with your colleagues to develop lists of educational videos for your students. Or, as I suggest in the video, have students collaborate to create a playlist of helpful videos.
At the EdTechTeacher.org Google Jamboree in Medfield, Massachusetts on December 5th I’ll be running a workshop all about the great features of YouTube that teachers can use.
