NJVID Digital Media Repository

What is NJVID?

NJVID, known as the New Jersey Digital Video Repository, is a service for video streaming and publishing of videos for higher education institutions. NJVID provides a common online platform for presenting, accessing, and hosting Montclair State University's licensed and locally produced videos that educate and enlighten viewers in support of hybrid and online teaching and learning.

MSU's NJVID accommodates two types of video collections: Academic/Administrative Collections and Commercial Video Collections (the Sprague Library Collection).

How Do I Use NJVID?

NJVID can stream locally produced videos to publish and deliver on the web not only to enhance instructional outcomes, but also to enrich administrative presentations and other projects. NJVID can also authorize access to your videos based on the target audience you have determined. Information Technology provides thorough documentation to assist the Campus Community to use NJVID. Check out our documentation below to learn how to use NJVID:

To receive a NJVID account to upload and share videos, we recommend attending our TechSmith Relay with NJVID Workshop; or contact Patrick Scioscia at sciosciap@mail.montclair.edu or Pamela Fallivene at fallivenep@mail.montclair.edu for a 1-on-1 training session. To learn more about the Commercial Video Collection (Sprague Library), please contact Chung-Hei Lone, the Head of Multimedia Services, at lonec@mail.montclair.edu or at  extension x7153.

How Does the MSU Community Use NJVID?

  • Faculty Members: NJVID provides a convenient environment to enhance teaching and learning. Many faculty members at MSU publish their original instructional videos to NJVID for students to view. Faculty also can embed the NJVID-published videos into their Canvas courses to enhance their teaching. Students can then playback the videos at their own pace 24/7.
  • Library: The Sprague Library Collection of commercial videos encompasses many diverse fields such as art, health, biology, psychology, geography, American history, etc. These commercial videos are all available to the MSU Community.
  • Administrative Departments: Videos from Administrative Departments can be published in NJVID. For example, Information Technology has published a number of videos, including the faculty presentations at the annual Summer Institute, tutorials for setting up devices, and tutorials for using various technologies.
Note: While wireless streaming should work, it is strongly recommended that faculty and students use a wired connection to a better experience and performance.
