Multimedia playlist on H2O: Chris Bavitz

Many instructors use H2O’s database of court decisions to compile a playlist that mirrors a customary casebook; others have taken advantage of H2O being a web-based platform, such as  Harvard Law School instructor, Chris Bavitz. He has utilized H2O for his Music and Digital Media course. The Introduction section of his playlist demonstrates the range of items he draws on for this course:Screen Shot 2016-04-11 at 7.11.09 PM

In just this one section, Professor Bavitz has included a self-annotated case (Eldred v Ashcroft), sections of U.S. Copyright Law, a section of Larry Lessig’s text Remix, as well as links to articles on Huffington Post, New York Times, and Salon, as well as videos on YouTube and the PBS website.

Creating items to add to a playlist, such as the YouTube video used by Professor Bavitz, is very simple. After creating an account, you can click ‘Create,” select “video”:
