Box of Broadcasts – curated playlists
How often have you thought, ‘Oh, I wish I’d see that programme’ when it had been broadcast?’, or ‘I’ve missed watching this other programme on catch-up’?
This is where Box of Broadcasts, fondly known as ‘BoB’, comes into its own. You can catch-up on programmes that have already been broadcast, as well as request recordings of programmes to be broadcast in the next 14 days.
Well, did you know that you can also create playlists within BoB?
Here are some examples of curated playlists created by academics around specific subject areas or modules:
- Literature and dance
- Women and theatre
- Classical music in film
- Jazz on BBC television
- Fashion, sustainability and beauty
Or you can consult the full list.
Are you a lecturer? Did you know that you can embed programmes and clips from BoB into Canvas? To embed a programme or clip, simply click the ‘share’ button under the player window, and copy and paste the link marked ‘embed’ into the relevant element within Canvas. You could also explore creating curated playlists for your modules.
