?48% of internet users have been to video-sharing sites such as YouTube.?
?The daily traffic to such sites on a typical day has doubled in the past year.?

How can we teach these students? We need to answer this now because digital video is increasing in usage as never before. NJVid, New Jersey?s state-of-the-art video access presents a scholarly alternative and fully takes advantage of the new broadband capabilities of today?s technology. It is a statewide digital video commons, with collections and services that address the wide-ranging needs of lifelong learners, educators and students.
NJVid was begun with an IMLS (Institute for Museums and Library Services) grant to set up the infrastructure and access for New Jersey?s K-20 educational institutions, museums and libraries to share and manage digital video content. We?ll start with three collections: Commercial Video, Locally Owned Content and Lectures-on-Demand. Using the collaboration between three major New Jersey Consortia: VALE (Virtual Academic Library Environment), NJDH (New Jersey Digital Highway) and NJEDge.Net, the statewide Technology consortium, NJVid provides a model for all states to take advantage of digital video content across broadband networks of I2 users.
