- Playlists are YouTube's way of allowing you to organize videos on the site: a playlist is a series of videos you put together - they don't have to be videos you uploaded, and you get to choose the order.
- When one video ends, the playlist plays the next video without offering 'related videos', thus creating a curated environment for your students.
- Therefore, by creating playlists of videos you can select which YouTube videos you want your students to view.
- Playlists live on your channel, are discoverable in search results (if you want them to be), and can be embedded on your blog or class site.
- Create a playlist of videos for each school unit so students can review them when looking to learn more about a topic or need to review for an upcoming assessment.

- Great playlists include videos that...
- Hook your students into a lesson.
- Provide real-world context for lessons.
- Help provide cultural relevance for your students.
- Provide remediation for concepts yet mastered.
- Provide alternative viewpoints.
- Provide visual context (chemical reactions, primary source videos).
- Review previously taught content.
