So my #bestpracticemonday for this week had to do with prepping your course for the next semester in that you should always check links and embeds for all external content.  Part of my post had the humorous tribute to Mr. Mister’s Broken Wings (one of my personal favorite bands of that era).  So the Tweet actually read:

@jspradlin #bestpracticemonday “Take..these broken links and learn to browse again..” Check links & embeds for external content prior 2 semester start.

Broken LinksAfter posting that tweet, I received numerous requests to post the rest of the song. As luck would have it I rounded up the members of my 80’s eLearning cover band, “Best Practice” (which was funny as we never really seemed to have time to rehearse) and we (okay it was just me as the rest of the members kept talking about how they missed their swatch watches and parachute pants) put together the Pedagogical sounds of a tribute.

So without further ado, here is Broken Links:


Song: Broken Links
Artist: Best Practice
Label: eLearning Records
Year: 1980 something

Maybe, you’ll understand
why we can just click on the links that we planned.
This time wont’ be the last I fear
cause websites seem to disappear
Where do they go? Ohhh…

Take these broken links
and learn to browse again
learn to surf so free
And when we find the web content
the links will open up again and let us in..

Take these broken links….

Maybe, I think today
we can take that youtube mashup
and make it play.

Or Maybe, it’s all I know, that the Voki I created
Just won’t show
Where did it go?

Take these broken links
and learn to browse again
learn to surf so free
And when we find the web content
the links will open up again and let us in..

Maybe, where can it be, that prezi from last semester
I just can’t see.
yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah.
Take these broken links
and learn to browse again
learn to surf so free
And when we find the web content
the links will open up again and let us in..

Take these broken links
and learn to browse again
learn to surf so free
And when we find the web content
the links will open up again and let us in..
