The word “playlist” brings to mind videos or songs, but it can also be applied in teaching. Leonel Morgado, professor at the Universidade Aberta in Portugal, teaches programming and virtual worlds as tools for learning and business. In order to help his students to better understand the content of upcoming lessons, he produces six-minutes long slideshows introducing the main course concepts, enhanced by a voice-narration to increase the level of authenticity. Apart from being used by his students, these slideshows are then shared with an open license through open-access digital platforms such as SlideShare, YouTube, to encourage public comments and wider dissemination.
