Tech Tip Tuesday - Adding NBC Learn Content

Many times, especially in announcements, instructors like to add relative articles and news stories that make the topic of their course connect with the real world.

Here at Stevenson University we have purchased the access and rights to use a content collection called NBC Learn.  It is exactly what it sounds like.  It is video news stories from NBC that span a wide range of topics.

This weeks Tech Tip Tuesday video tutorial shows you how to add this content to your courses, especially in the announcement area.

The only downside I have found to adding this to an announcement is when the announcement is emailed out you can't view the NBC Learn content in the email but you can see it is there.  Only when the announcement is read within Blackboard can you also view the video.
