NBC Learn


From Dean Kendrick at UMass Online and Continuing Studies:

UMass Lowell just negotiated with UMass online and Blackboard to make over 16,000 video resources available through NBC Learn which is integrated into Blackboard in many subject areas.   These are professionally done documentaries that are part of the NBC archives and include close captioning.

We will be making these available to the faculty very shortly and we will also be featuring them in our upcoming Rich Media workshops this month.  If you are interested in learning more about NBC Learn please see this link.

What is NBC Learn?

For more than 80 years, NBC News has been documenting the people, places, and events that shape our world. NBC Learn, the educational arm of NBC News, is dedicated to making these historic stories, images and primary source documents available on-demand to teachers, students, and parents.

NBC Learn has already digitized more than 12,000 stories from the NBC News archives — one of the largest news archives in the world, dating back to the 1920s. In addition, collections are updated with current events every day, Monday through Friday, with stories from such celebrated programs as NBC Nightly News, the TODAY show, Meet the Press, Dateline NBC, as well as the networks of MSNBC, CNBC, and Telemundo.
