Who We Are

You already know NBC Learn for its award-winning education products used in tens of thousands of K-12 and college-level classrooms around the world. You may not realize that in addition to providing current events from NBC News and historic reports from the NBC News Archives, NBC Learn is also a full-service production house that has created more than a thousand engaging, inspiring, and informative stories for foundations, corporations, educational publishers, and others.

NBC Learn Original Productions is staffed with writers, producers, senior producers, editors, graphic artists, archivists and rights and clearances managers from NBC News. With a collaborative production process, we are adept at meeting any partner’s budget, deadline, and needs.

Award-Winning Storytelling

NBC Learn Original Productions has won dozens of awards for its high quality, innovative stories designed for use in the classroom, including a 2011 Emmy award for "Science of the Olympic Winter Games" and "Science of NFL Football."

Examples

In-Depth Reporting

NBC Learn Original Productions has produced more than a dozen series that cover single topics in depth. These "all-original" productions are produced in close collaboration with partners.

Examples

  • "Sustainability: Water - The Water Cycle" - produced with the National Science Foundation, 6/26/2013
  • "Science of Innovation - Self-Driving Cars" - produced with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office and the National Science Foundation, 2/4/2013

Creative & Innovative

NBC Learn Original Productions has produced hundreds of stories for partners operating on a tighter budget. These stories still involve great story-telling, but rely on innovative field production, editing, and graphics to help stay on budget and on deadline.

Examples

Current Events & Historic Reports

As the educational arm of NBC News, NBC Learn Original Productions has access to truly "current" events, as well as access to the NBC News Archives, one of the largest news archives in the world.

Examples

Live Events

From live broadcasts on NBC News, MSNBC and the NBC News Affiliates, to "live-to-tape" productions distributed across the NBC News platforms, NBC Learn Original Productions has produced several town halls events with its partners.

Examples

Partners in Production

NBC Learn Original Productions has the proven ability to handle large projects that can take 6 months or longer to produce. Production includes researching topics, booking interviews, videotaping interviews and b-roll, writing, editing, and distributing. NBC Learn maintains editorial control, but works in a collaborative manner with its partners.
