Teaching about an event in history and need to give the students a brief overview? Rather than having them read about it, they can view short vintage video clips on NBC Learn.

With over 21,000 resources across 40 disciplines, NBC Learn is a powerful tool that can increase engagement and relevancy in your course—no matter the subject. Our library features current events, archival, and original videos that are 2-6 minutes in length and can easily be embedded in your courses. For faculty at University of Arkansas, we offer complimentary curriculum alignments so you can determine the resources that best fit your course. Please email syllabi or other materials to to take advantage of this free service.

The NBC News archives are one of the largest news archives in the world, dating back to the 1920s. In addition, collections are updated with current events every day, Monday through Friday, with stories from such celebrated programs as NBC Nightly News, the TODAY show, Meet the Press, Dateline NBC, as well as the networks of MSNBC, CNBC, and Telemundo.

Tips Tip

It’s important to place each of your videos in a separate content item instead of putting several videos in one item.  If you don’t, it can cause it to break.
