It’s all about BOB

We had a lively discussion at the Coffee Club meeting yesterday around the Box of Broadcasts (BoB) service.  Marian Miller from the library led the discussions by giving us an overview of BoB, some of our GCU useage stats, the clipping, citation and transcript features.

Karla Benske has already written an excellent overview post (available here) of her mini love affair with BoB, and it is definitely worth a read.  One issue we did touch on yesterday was that this is very much a UK based service. Students not based in the UK can’t access the service due to the licence it operates out of. So that is definitely something to consider if using BoB for a flexible, online course.  That said the potential for our UK based students is very compelling, and it is a fantastic way to easily access some rich content.
