$35.00 + tax (Refund Policy)

With an increasing demand for streaming video collections to support teaching, especially with the growth in online programs, the National Broadcasting Company (NBC) Learn Higher Ed database can be considered as an educational resource for schools and libraries. The database contents include video collections as well as primary source documents covering broad subjects. Though the contents are continuously growing, they are very selective, and not comprehensive. The interface is user-friendly, disability compliant, and supports various browsers and platforms. The unique feature of this database is its media player Cue Card (aka video clip), which is interactive, easily shared, and seamlessly embedded into Blackboard learning management system. The cost of subscription for academic institutions is very high, being based on Full-Time Enrollment (FTE). The provider is flexible, however, and provides for discounted subscription pricing which includes unlimited simultaneous use.
