NBC Learn & Blackboard
You have direct access to NBC Learn videos right in Blackboard, simply go to any content area within your course: click Build Content > MashUps > select NBC Learn Content. You can search video collections and embed NBC Learn Cue Cards directly into your course.
Note: You can also access the video content and your playlist via the Tools area of your course. However, you will still need to embed the videos you want students to view.
Playlists on NBC Learn vs. Blackboard Learn:
Creating playlists on NBC Learn HigherEd allows for more versatility with categorizing and adding videos. Adding NBC Content through the Blackboard can be done two ways. Either method adds the video(s) to the Blackboard play list but this playlist cannot be edited or shared and is separate from the playlist you create with your NBC Learn account while on the NBC Learn website.
- Build Content > Mash-up adds the video to a playlist within Blackboard
- Users (all users, including students) are also able to add NBC Content in any text editor window using the Mash-up button. This allows students to include videos in their discussion posts or assignments - anywhere they have access to a text editor menu.
