Canvas has a new tool: the NBCLearn Video Library. This tool allows you to embed videos directly to your course via the Text Editor Toolbar: in an Assignment Quiz, Page, the course Syllabus, and other areas. These videos include a transcript and English captioning, plus citations in MLA, APA or Chicago Style formats.

When you create or edit one of these course items in the Text Editor, you will see the NBC Peacock logo next to the DU Shield Course Media Button.

For professors at DU, NBCLearn provides complimentary syllabus review and video suggestions. The team will send you selected video links related to your course materialso you can determine the resources that best fit your course. Please email syllabi or other materials to to take advantage of this free service.


Clicking on the button opens a screen where you can browse or search for the video clips.
