Create a Playlist

Playlists are a powerful way to organize groups videos inside the MarcoPolo for Educators portal. With Playlists, you can quickly reference videos with the click of a button. 

Some popular types of playlists include: 

  • Create a playlist for each day of the week as part of your weekly lesson planning
  • Create a playlist for a specific theme (like "Winter Wonderland") you're teaching

To create a Playlist, follow these steps: 

Note: Please note you can only create Playlists on the desktop or tablet version of MarcoPolo for Educators. You can't create new Playlists on mobile phones, however, you can view Playlists you've already created. 


1. When logged in, click on "Create Playlist" in the left-hand navigation



2. Set a Name and Description for your Playlist and click "Confirm"

FAQs about Playlists

How do I share a Playlist with students and their caregivers to watch at home?

Unfortunately, if you want to share a Playlist home you will need to create something called a "Share" rather than a Playlist. Please refer to this article. We recognize this is confusing and will be making an update to the overall user experience of Playlists and Share home in Summer 2024. Thank you for your patience! 

Can I create a Playlist with videos in Spanish?

You can create a Playlist using Spanish language videos by toggling to the Spanish version of the MarcoPolo for Educators portal. Once there, any playlists you create on the Spanish side will show on the English side. 

Can I share Playlists with other teachers or team members?

At this time, the Playlists that you create are unique to you and you alone. However, as part of our work in Summer 2024 to update the user experience of Playlists, we will be exploring the ability for you to share Playlists with other educators in your school or organization.
