How To Start Your Free Trial
Sample email to faculty to solicit feedback
Dear Faculty,
At the request of the xyz Department, we have created a link in
Blackboard to the NBC News Archives on Demand.
NBC is providing us with a ninety (90) day free trial of this service which
will give you the ability to link your Blackboard sites to NBC videos
on a variety of topics.
This trial will expire in ninety (90) days. At the end of the trial period,
the links you create will remain but only the first fifteen seconds of
each video will play. The xyz department will then survey the faculty to see if the NBC News Archives are a
resource that you would like to have permanently available.
A short video clip about how to create the links is here:
