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.

Make a Playlist:

  • Login at the Playlist Dashboard
  • To add content, click on any Learning Portal object with a blue plus button 
  • If you are a co-creator, select "Create New Entry" to upload your own files
