One Response to “NBC Learn”

  1. Tami's rating and/or comments:

    NBC seems to be marketing or promoting this through instructional/academic technology departments on campuses (as an instructional aid for faculty), but we recently subscribed after a long trial, and our experience shows its value to be more of an information resource for student assignments. Students use this as a visual/multimedia counterpart to historical print news sources such as the NYT. Our librarians find it to be as well-constructed online resource as well.
