NBC Learn offers a state-of-the-art video streaming technology, an innovative patent-pending media player called the CueCard, and incorporates Web 2.0 collaboration tools that encourages media participation, personalization and sharing.
Due to our global caching infrastructure, which replicates the video content across 61,000 servers in 70 countries, institutions do not need to purchase any additional hardware or video servers to utilize this service.
Concerned about not having the Internet bandwidth for streaming video or unreliable classroom connectivity? Don't worry - you can download the NBC Learn CueCards right to your desktop and play them back without an Internet connection! Through an Adobe Air plugin, the Offline CueCard download player makes it easy and ensures that you always have access to the resources you need.
The offline player runs on both Mac and PC platforms and comes with an integrated digital rights management (DRM) system that protects property rights and manages the subscription service.
Once the offline player has been installed, users can download as many videos as they wish. Using the offline player makes it easy to embed a resource in a paper, presentation, lesson plan or share it with colleagues and friends.
For schools who restrict software downloads to individual computers, the NBC Learn offline player can be mass-distributed by the School Technology Staff.
