Box of Broadcasts
Box of Broadcasts, or BoB as it is affectionately known, is an on demand TV and radio service for education run by an organisation called Learning on Screen. It allows staff and students at subscribing institutions to record and watch programmes from over 60 free-to-air channels and search an archive of over 2 million broadcasts.
How to Access BoB
Content is accessible online, both on and off campus within the UK. When you arrive at the BoB homepage begin by clicking “Login”. Next Select Edinburgh Napier University from the “Where are you from?” drop-down box. You will need to register the first time you use BoB, but after that, you can simply log in with your university username & password.
Not only will you be able to access millions of broadcasts, including those from channels such as the BBC, CNN, and Channel 4, but you can make personal playlists and create clips.
BoB also provides helpful tutorials to get you started. There are also useful guides on how to use it in the classroom and curated playlists you can access from expert academics and researchers.
