New! BoB – from Learning on Screen

bob-promo-slide

We now have access to a great new TV and radio resource, it’s the ultimate catch-up service for students – BoB (https://learningonscreen.ac.uk/ondemand).  Using BoB you will be able to view, record, create clips and share any broadcast programmes from nearly 65 TV and radio channels. That’s around 2,000,000 educational TV and radio programmes, and once programmes are recorded they are kept indefinitely!

The catch-up service on missed programmes will be available on and off-campus.  Login using your College email address and password.  You can schedule recordings in advance, edit programmes into clips and create playlists.  You will be able to search a growing archive of material and if you wish to use any for your studies a one-click citation reference is available allowing you to cite programmes easily in your bibliography.

Staff will be able to create playlists of programmes related to their topic and  link to their clips from iLearn. Using video and radio resources like these will bring lectures to life, creating engaging learning material.

You can even view content from BoB on your smartphone or iPad. Searching for relevant programmes is very quick and simple using keywords and you can even search through transcripts.

Take a look, be creative and make clips or a personal playlist to include in your reports.
