Availability of media asset reporting tool and other new features

The following new features will be available to all NJVID subscribers on September 1, 2014 at approximately 11 PM EST.

New reporting tool: Monitor your usage (media assets, storage and views) of the service

We are proud to announce the availability of a new reporting tool for NJVID users and administrators. This tool will help administrators, librarians and users in viewing detailed statistics of NJVID services usage in their institution. The reporting tool will provide key insights into how NJVID is being used within the institution 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. 

The Media asset report lets administrators, owners and authorized users see data on creation trends and monitor storage used. Data visualization through graphs and reports let them track the asset creation trends and then filter and sort based on where the assets were uploaded (website,  LMS or capture device), uploaded hosts, media type and collections. The tool will also have the listing of all commercial assets and their licenses integrated into it, allowing a single pane access of all institutional assets for administrators and librarians and will soon replace the existing Commercial license listing tool. 

The Views report is an enhanced version of the existing Usage Statistics tool and will soon be replacing it. The report provides administrators, owners and authorized users with a comprehensive report on the views for media uploaded by the institutional users. The administrators and users can then filter views data and  see device and browser specific statistics across specific category types of media, or collections. Librarians can also filter views based on the commercial vendor’s name or collection. The tool will also let administrators view other key data such as  top viewers and top viewed media from the Institution. In addition, all reports can be easily exported to CSV file for further analysis.

Automatic title suggestion based on uploaded file name

In the “Add media” screen in the website as well as in LMSes, if the title was not entered in form, the name of the uploaded media file will be suggested as the title in the Title field.


Email notification when the media is ready for viewing

While adding a new media file, the user can choose to be notified when the media file is ready to be viewed. The user can also specify additional email addresses to notify other users.

NJVID Update

February 4,

We are
excited to announce the following features and updates to the NJVID platform
effective the night of February 17, 2014. These changes are based on the
feedback regarding improving the administrative roles and expanding the
features available for Collections Managers we received last year.
Institutional Collection Managers (ICM) can
now be allowed to create sub-Collections in the Collections they manage.
Institutional Administrator of each Institution can now create new ICM’s or assign
permissions for existing Collections Managers with the ability to create subcollections
in the collections they manage. Users with such privileges will not only be able
to manage videos and users within their assigned collections, but can also create
sub-collections and manage all aspects of the created sub-collections as ICM’s.
They will also have the privilege to create or assign similar ICM’s with
collection creation permissions for all the sub-collections they have access
to. This feature will give the Institutional Administrators the flexibility to
have Collections Managers who can create and manage their own collections,
without having to deal with collection creation requests from other Collection

Inheritance of Collection Permissions by Institutional
Collection Managers (ICM)
user who is an ICM of a collection will now automatically become the ICM of that
collection’s sub-collections. Institutional Administrators will no longer have
to explicitly provide ICM privileges to child collections to a user if the same
user is already the ICM  of the parent
Improved Representation of Collection Structure for
Add/Edit User Interface
collection display on the “Add user” and “Edit user”
screens will now be presented as a tree structure, replacing the linear list displayed
today. Clicking on each collection will open up a window that shows permissions
for that user for that collection. This improved interface will be intuitive
and helpful to administrators while assigning collection properties.
We will also be
updating the support site (http://support.njvid.net) to reflect these changes.
Please feel free
to contact us with your questions or comments – email us at support@njvid.net

Announcing a new feature: Video Usage Statistics

We are pleased to announce the display and graphical view of usage statistics of your videos. Institutional administrators, Collections Managers and Content creators can now gauge the usage and response of a published video in NJVID. The graphical tools will not disrupt any existing workflow pertaining to uploading and managing videos.

Video Usage Statistics: The number of views for a video is shown under the video player. Clicking on the graph icon/button will reveal a widget which shows a graphical representation of the views. Advanced Graphing based on custom date ranges and Day/Month/Year segments are also available.

Please note that for Learning on Demand and Commercial videos, viewing of statistics is available only for the following category of users.

  • Institutional Administrators
  • Collection Managers
  • Authorized librarians
  • Content/video owners

For Commons videos, basic video statistics are displayed for all viewers.
