Embed NBC Learn Content Into Your Course

Embed NBC Learn Content in your Course

There are three ways to embed NBC Learn content into your course:

  1. Insert NBC Learn modules onto your course homepage. This will display a module that allows you and your students to browse through and watch relatively current content in categories such as business and finance and general news items.
  2. Embed content directly from the Build Content menu in a content area. This allows you to browse all NBC archives and embed content into a course item.
  3. Embed content through the mash-up tool in the visual text editor. This is the most flexible option, allowing you to bring content into any Blackboard component that allows access to the text editor.
