H2O is a free platform for creating, sharing and adapting open course materials. Use playlists to make an online syllabus or casebook, and use collages to highlight, edit and annotate cases.

H2O playlists (beta) are shared lists of readings and other content about a topic of intellectual interest. It is a simple yet powerful way to group and exchange useful links to information — online and offline.

H2O playlists are more than just a cool, sleek technology — they represent a new way of thinking about education online. An H2O Playlist is a series of links to books, articles, and other materials that collectively explore an idea or set the stage for a course, discussion, or current event.

H2O Playlists make it easy to:

  • transform traditional syllabi into interactive, global learning tools
  • share the reading lists of world-renowned scholars, organizations, and cultural leaders
  • let interested people subscribe to playlist updates and stay current on their fields
  • promote an exchange of ideas and expertise among professors, students, and researchers
  • communicate and aggregate knowledge — online and offline.

So, go on — check out existing playlists or create your own.
