NJVID Video Browser in Canvas

NJVID is a state-of-the-art digital media repository service for streaming and preservation of academic and research media for higher education.  This service is provided by NJEDge.Net – New Jersey Research and Education Network – and builds upon a strong, statewide collaboration among universities, libraries, museums and K-12 education.

NJVid is now available for use within Canvas.  Embed videos from TCNJ’s NJVid Collections into your course pages or upload your own videos using the NJVid Video Browser Tool.

ITS Guidelines, Procedures and information for NJVID Video Browser Tool in Canvas:

ITS will only be supporting NJVID use through the Canvas interface.  The NJVID Video Browser is configured to upload videos to the collection, Canvas Uploads, by default.  If a user has access to other collections, you may choose to upload to one of those collections instead, however ITS will not be able to provide support for those collections.

Instructors have the option to allow their students to upload videos through the NJVID Video Browser.  Student videos uploaded this way have ownership transferred to the instructor of the course.

Video Deletion – NJVID through Canvas is not intended to be a permanent storage location for videos.  At the end of each semester, ITS will generate a report and contact instructors that have videos hosted in the Canvas Uploads collection.  Instructors will need to reply back with a list of videos they wish to keep in the collection.  All others will be deleted.  This is a necessary process to keep storage costs down and the collection organized.

Instructors and students should maintain their own copy of the source video.  NJVID does not support downloading of the hosted videos.

Please keep Copy Right and Fair Use in mind.
