The Learning on Demand service lets institutional users (instructors, staff and students) upload, publish, share, stream and archive content to the repository. As all digital media objects can be actively integrated into Learning Management systems such as Canvas, Moodle, Blackboard etc. the service allows faculty to manage digital media into their courses and control access through an easy-to-use interface.
- Instant Uploads: NJVID users can easily upload video, audio, PDF and images without worrying about media conversion, formats from their personal devices.
- Bulk upload options: Institutions that already have a lot of content can quickly import their content to NJVID using bulk importing tools. This allows institutions to quickly bring up the service in production mode especially when they are migrating from other content service providers to the NJVID platform.
- Easy Content Share: One click share functionality lets users share content with institutional members as well as individual users, personalized groups and even make them public.
- Fine-grained object listing and visibility options: List content to specific users or groups based on user ID or role attributes.
- Extensive metadata options: Content uploaders have to option to provide exhaustive metadata to a resource to aid its searchability and discoverability.
- LMS Integration: NJVID’s integration with popular LMS platforms such as Canvas, Blackboard, Sakai, Moodle enables instructors and students to upload content as well and embed clips from within the LMS course. This content can be then accessed from within the course pages saving time as well as storage costs of hosting such content on LMS systems.
- Student upload functionality: Students can be given permissions to upload video and other media file formats in the system as well as in the LMS integration. This particular feature is very useful in courses where discussion forums or presentations is required and such media can exist within the confines of an institutional repository instead of third party sites.
- Multi track caption support: Users can upload multiple captions in more than one language improving accessibility.
- Create Clips and Playlists: Create custom clips from full length videos, as well as create personalized lists/playlists comprising of videos or even image galleries.
- Captions creator tool: Users can manually add captions to their videos using the NJVID caption creator tool. The tool can be accessed from both NJVID as well as the LMS course by the content owners and administrators.
- Integration with Lecture Capture Systems: NJVID can import videos created by other screen recording software such as Camtasia Relay and automatically associate ownership of the video files using the metadata generated by these third party applications. The system can also detect captions and import them to the system.
- Fine grained administrative controls: The administrative hierarchy and permissions are designed to fit the needs of higher education. Group administrators can exist at the department level to independently handle the needs of their department and create a distributed system of support for the service within the organizations
- Reporting and Analytical tool: The NJVID reporting tool provides detailed statistics of NJVID services usage in their institution to administrators and content creators of subscribing Institutions through a combination of graphs and statistics. Administrators can not only track number of media uploads, usage, and views but also track amount of storage being used. Using an intuitive interface users can filter the reports based on media types, collections and platforms. Similarly, the number of views or usage by user can also be retrieved Data can be exported to CSV for all reports. The tool also lets administrators view key data such as top viewed media within the institution as well as top users of the service.
