The University’s subscription to Box of Broadcasts (BoB) is now live!
BoB is an off-air recording and media archive service. Users can record and view broadcast TV and radio programmes for educational purposes, from over 50 free-to-air channels in the UK using BoB. Users can also search the archive of over 10,000 previous recordings. BoB is simple to use and maximises the potential offered by the University’s ERA Plus Licence from the Educational Recording Agency.
Bob can be accessed from: http://bobnational.net/. Just type in ‘Loughborough University’ and enter your usual user-name and password to activate your account.
BoB provides a set of video tutorials on YouTube which demonstrate how to use the system. These include:
