  1. In your Canvas course, click on Media Gallery from the left-hand navigation menu.

  2. Click on the channel actions icon, then choose Create channel playlist from the menu.
    Media Gallery settings menu with Edit option highlighted
  3. In the Create Playlist window, add a title for the playlist, description, and tags (usually department abbreviation and number, i.e. ENGL 1010). Then, click Create.
