Unit 9- Youtube Genres


EDIT: UGH! Fixed it!

The assignment asks to either 1) add a video to an existing category or 2) develop a new category. The thing about that is, what I really want to do is to collapse like most of these categories and simplify the hell out of this list. It seems like DS106ers of future past might have not been paying really close attention to what was already up on the list when they were adding new categories, cause there is a ton of redundancy. Rather than deleting everybody else’s work on the google doc and reorganizing it in what I feel is the right way (which man I REALLY want to do and am still thinking about doing), I will list below the categories that I believe to exist on YouTube, including insofar as they are useful and relevant the categories that have been put forth by those who went before me.

So I added a few and deleted a few more, but I think I pretty much nailed it, just saying. I wish now I could just run through and restructure the whole thing but A) that would be rude and B) no, I have way too much other stuff to do that’s much more important. Like the next session of this unit! So.
