Interactive Educational Media - NET produced multimedia projects, including the award-winning “Birds of Nebraska” CD for the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission and an online training program for UNL’s Custodial Services as well as two online courses for the Department of Labor for Career Readiness and Professional Development.

Community Engagement and Educational Outreach are the cornerstones of NET’s mission. Community engagement and outreach extends the impact of NET’s television and radio broadcasts by providing access to educational materials and collaborative activities. New projects and partnerships are helping us reach more people than ever across the state of Nebraska and beyond.

Teaching and Intern Programs - NET continued to supplement the academic preparation of 12 UNL students this year with practical work experience in audio, video and online production. Partners: UNL’s College of Journalism and Mass Communications, Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts and the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources.

NET Virtual Learning Library blends content with memorable visual images that support classrooms with supplemental materials, including suggested lesson plans, learning objectives and ties to state standards. The online library will let Nebraska teachers and students tap into more than 30,000 digital resources this year comprised of audio, video and interactive components.
