Playlists

Playlists are like 'mixtapes' that anyone—including you—can put together and share using materials on the Learning Portal.

You can handpick Learning Portal videos, sounds, images and pathways to create your own playlist on whatever theme you like. Playlists can be enjoyed on their own for fun or as educational resources.

If there is something you don’t see on the Learning Portal, ask to become a co-creator after creating your profile. We look forward to exchanging ideas with learners from all across the province.

Sustainable Agriculture

The exhibit we have created in the Royal BC Museum, and this playlist is about the importance of sustainable agriculture, not just for today, but for the future as well.
