Create a Collaborative YouTube Playlist

[icon name="fa-cloud-upload"] STANDARD 3: model digital age work and learning

Today I want to show you a very simple way for a group of users to share a YouTube playlist. In a previous article, we looked at how to broadcast YouTube playlists on Apple TV. We wanted to find a solution to let our students quickly create a YouTube playlist as a team. This new skill will allow you to build a collaborative YouTube Playlist so students can add their own videos to a class project.

  3. At the top of the page, click on the button labeled “+ New playlist” to create a YouTube playlist.
