Playlists are a way for teachers to create one or more activities quickly and easily. Playlists act as list of activities and can consist of coding exercises, quizzes, unit test problems and more. As soon as a teacher creates an activity in a Playlist, that activity is visible to students and ready for them to take.
Custom Courses provide teachers with the ability to create their own modules, lessons, and activities using the same structure as standard CodeHS courses. Once a teacher has added a custom course, they can enroll or unenroll their sections in that course, allowing for added control over course visibility. Teachers can also use CodeHS' full set of teacher tools (such as Progress Tracking, Grading etc) with custom courses.
