We are saddened to announce that NBC Learn is shutting down operations and service June 2020. See below for details.

""NBC Learn Higher Ed is a collection of more than 21,000 videos, documents, and images that can be incorporated into classroom lectures and online teaching materials. The stories on NBC Learn Higher Ed are two-to-six minutes in length and designed so that faculty can provide students access to digital content that is engaging, inspiring, and relevant to their daily lives. In addition to its rich collection of primary-source newscasts from the NBC archive, NBC Learn Higher Ed is updated daily with the latest and current events videos from NBC News and its portfolio. The resources enable faculty to use real-world case studies and keep students up-to-date on the latest developments in their fields. NBC Learn is integrated with the Canvas Learning Management System (LMS) to allow easy embedding of media anywhere the rich text editor is available in Canvas.

NBC Learn — End of Service

We have recently learned that NBC Learn is shutting down and will no longer offer their video library as a service.

When will this happen?

  • NBC Learn is shutting down effective June 2020
  • UAB eLearning removed the application on May 4th, 2020, to prevent users from using the technology in the future.
  • All information regarding NBC Learn on the UAB eLearning website will be removed at the end of June 2020.

How does this impact you?

  • Any videos embedded into Canvas or other resources from NBC Learn will no longer work.
  • Faculty and students can no longer access the NBC Learn library in or out of Canvas.

What should you do to prepare?

  • Instructors should review their course content and remove any NBC Learn videos. These videos will not work and will show an error code if left in the course content.
  • Locate other videos to replace the videos you were showing through NBC Learn. UAB Libraries has created a webpage about the video resources available at UAB.
