Tools to DIY (Do It Yourself):

  • Create a Personal Account on Music Online to place all MusicOnline and Naxos tracks, Grove Online and online journal articles, Petrucci and Classical Scores music, YouTube and other online videos—essentially anything that has a web address—on reserve.  Advantage: is accessible on all mobile devices.
  • JMUTube allows you to upload audio and video from your iTunes or other music software and create your own playlists.  Links to, or players themselves, can be placed in your Music Online account playlist (see above) or in your Blackboard course (see below), or in your Course Reserves in Leo.. Caveat:  uses flash so not compatible with Apple mobile devices like iPod, iPad, iPhone.
  • Blackboard Yes, your course is already there. You just need to add content.
  • Itunes sharing for very small classes or non-required listening you can simply share a playlist from you office computer (with or without password) and anyone in the building can connect.
