In all my classes, I ask students to submit their favorite songs via online survey. For in-person classes, I create playlists on Spotify to play on shuffle in the classroom during lab time, group work, etc. When we switched to online-only distance learning, I modified this into a YouTube playlist, adding a random music video from the list to the end of the lecture recordings on Blackboard.
Students were allowed to submit multiple songs. If you submitted a song, but you don’t see it here, it might be because…
- You submitted a link, but it wasn’t a YouTube link, or your link was broken.
- Your video was no longer available by the time I tried to add it to the playlist.
- Your video was more explicit than I was comfortable to share in a classroom (even if it’s an online classroom).
In any case, these playlists represent a wide array of tastes and styles. Enjoy!
