•  NBC Learn Enhances Experiences for UWA Online Students


    A massive video archive containing thousands of videos from all the decades of NBC broadcasts from the late 1930s through today, NBC LEARN is now available to UWA Division of Online Program students and instructors to enhance the online learning experience. The tool became available for UWA students and faculty with the onset of Fall 1 session.

    NBC LEARN is a collection of videos, documents, and images that students and faculty can access and use right in Blackboard. Faculty can take advantage of this tool to enliven classes, introduce current events, and use real-world examples to bring subjects to life!
    According to the NBC LEARN website, original videos and archival news stories from NBC are correlated to state standards and the Common Core, and aligned to more than 25 K-12 and 30 Higher Ed collections. Videos are generally short — less than six minutes in length — enabling instructors to engage and enlighten their students.

    To deliver stories in a collaborative online learning environment, NBC LEARN developed the most advanced media player in existence. Called a Cue Card™, the player supports videos, photographs, newspaper articles, primary source documents, and other media.
