Any comments to add about the resource or video? Potentially important things: what text/chapter does this align with? Is there anything in this video that is specific to your course or text (i.e., you ask students to look at p. 34 of your text or coursepack, and viewers won't be able to follow along unless they have that resource)? Do you use any terminology that's specific to your course?
3/14/2020 14:25:44Leigh VanHandellvh@msu.eduMichigan StateInvertible counterpoint introduction (identification/analysis)
I reference my students' coursepack, but all examples are shown on screen. I do give an "assignment" at the end for the last example shown but you can tell students to ignore that. When referring to voice exchanges, I refer to them as "groovy" voice exchanges because I've found that it helps students remember that "voice exchange" is the good one (as compared to "voice crossing" or "voice overlap," which are seductively similar!).

Artusi is a cloud based platform for music theory learning. Artusi allows students to complete assignments and exams remotely, while giving students infinite practice and real-time feedback as well as providing automatic grading for instructors. You can embed video, PDFs, images, etc within the platform, all of which is fully customizable for how you teach music theory. We cover Fundamentals through Theory 3, with some Theory 4 resources. We also include ear training exercises. And we are here to help!!

Music Literacy, Fundamentals (most videos are labeled by topic)
I'm the theory teacher at Liberty Park Music, an asynchronous video-based subscription music school. (I do the scripts/content, while others animate it all) Awhile ago I downloaded some of the finished videos to offer my IU fundamentals theory students as study aids. I got such positive feedback that I've kept offering them to each new class. This is not a complete set of videos but may be good for the real visual learners who don't have good enough wifi to follow along with a Zoom class, and the videos are almost all under 10 minutes.

3/16/2020 14:19:38Jennifer Shafershafer@udel.eduUniversity of DelawareFundamentals: Major and minor scales, intervals, and triads
A set of videos (used in a flipped classroom setting) and accompanying handouts are linked in the folder above; highly recommend the student following along with the worksheet, as the videos assume that you are doing so. The videos are (unfortunately) on the long side; something I planned to go back and re-make/edit sometime in the future. They are not course-specific in terms of a text, but are specific to the goals of my particular course, which is intended to remediate fundamentals knowledge for incoming music majors/minors and focuses on both knowledge and fluency. Each topic has two parts: presentation of information and discussion of strategies to build speed and fluency. In the first few videos (major scales/key signatures and two sets of minor scales/key signature videos) these are split into separate videos. Since the interval and triad videos rely on previous knowledge from the various scale videos, these are much shorter and thus both halves are included in one video.

Feel free to contact me should you have any questions.
