Congratulations to the winners of our competition to win BoB treats!
You may recall a UCL Library tweet (@UCLLibraries) in which we said the first online reading lists with links to BoB (Box of Broadcasts) would win some BoB treats. René Weis, Jonathan Kendall and Suzanne Jago were the creative academics to first use BoB in their teaching, and added links to their online reading lists. As René even has two BoB entries in one list, he is arguably the number one user of BoB in reading lists at UCL!
BoB is a broadcast service that UCL subscribes to. It allows educational use of TV and radio programmes:
- Share a link to a programme with your students, add a link to an online reading list or even tweet it
- Save clips from programmes and create playlists
- Programmes can be viewed by any BoB users, which includes all registered students and staff at UCL (only inside the UK).
- Using BoB in your teaching helps stay copyright compliant
To add a link to a BoB programme in your online reading list:
- Log in to BoB using your UCL sign in and password
- Navigate to the programme you wish to add to your reading list and click on its title
- Press the reading lists button ‘Add to My Bookmarks’
- Change Resource Type from ‘Webpage’ to ‘Audio-visual document’ and add new fields to enrich the data e.g. date, publisher, author
- Click ‘Create & Add to List’ to add reading to a particular list and also your bookmarks OR click ‘Create’ to just save the resource in your bookmarks to add to your list at a future date
- ‘Save draft’ or ‘Publish’ changes to your reading list. Saving a draft will mean that no one but you can see the changes. To enable students to see the updates, use ‘Publish’. This makes the changes available immediately.
