The last day ended with Lester Holt, co-anchor of TODAY Weekend Edition and Anchor of NBC nightly News, Weekend Edition. A very recent partnership with Blackboard and NBC Learn (the educational arm of NBC). This partnership will offer colleges, universities, and K-12 schools the ability to enhance instruction with their incredible repository of digital news and supplemental content developed for educational use. The partnership will enable instructors and students to access audio, video and other news content within their e-learning platform to strengthen the learning experience.

News archives will be available from Franklin D. Roosevelt's election in 1932 to present day. Examples of footage that will always be important parts of our history include Neil Armstrong's first steps on the moon to the fall of the Berlin Wall. The video resources will span across various subject matter and include original audio, video, and third party content such as the Washington post's newspaper articles, and current material from NBC's Nightly News, and Meet the Press.
As Terry and I listen and see the potential for integration of these resources we'll also look for local news and if it will be made available for our learners in Hawaii. It's a very exciting time for bridging traditional news and journalism with education. This partnership hopefully will pave the way for new learning to take place online.
