The University of South Carolina is excited to announce a special partnership with NBC Learn, a collection of videos, documents, and images for classroom and online use.
If you are looking for a way to enliven your classes, introduce current events, or use real-world examples to bring subjects to life for your students, then NBC Learn will be the perfect tool.
University Technology Services has NBC Learn for a trial period until August 2011. Plans to keep NBC Learn will be based upon resources and popularity.
- Log into Blackboard with your USC Network Username and password.
- Choose Control Panel.
- Choose a Content Area (Course Information, Course Documents, External Links, Assignments) that is most appropriate.
- On the right side of the screen, Go to Select: and use the drop down menu and choose NBC Content. Click Go.
- You will be directed to the NBC Learn site. You can search for videos using Keywords in the search box or browse through a variety of subjects listed on the left navigation bar. There are both archived and new videos, as well as interesting documents, available through NBC Learn.
- Once you see a video you would like to add to your page, click on the video itself. At the bottom will be a Save / Embed / Print feature. Choose Embed and that will go directly into your Blackboard content page that you have selected.
