- 3 comments
In this tutorial I will describe how to play a YouTube video in a NexPort Campus Media Assignment.

What You'll Need

  • The embed code for a YouTube video
  • Familiarity with creating Sections and Assignments and Permissions to edit a Section and it's assignments
  • The attached YouTube Wrapper File

Step 1

First you must obtain the EMBED code for your video from YouTube. In order to do this you must navigate to the video you wish to use. Below the video find the link that says SHARE and then find the link that says EMBED. YouTube will provide you with the code in a textarea (see image to the left). Copy this code.

NexPort Solutions releases NexPort Campus v. 5.0.9, providing users with increased speed for section listings, bug fixes and improved UI, introduces NexPort Scheduling Services

- 0 comments
OKLAHOMA CITY – March 25, 2014 – NexPort Solutions Group is excited to announce NexPort Campus v. 5.0.9 point release, which introduces NexPort Scheduling Services. This release adds a force repair feature to fix broken transcript records, few visual enhancements, increased speed and fixes numerous bugs.

New Features
Customer Service now has the ability to force repair any broken transcript records. Force generating transcript records allows fixes broken transcript records for students whose records have stopped synchronizing with a student's enrollments.

Performance Enhancements
With 5.0.9, NexPort users will experience a new way in which the system handles scheduled jobs. NexPort Campus now uses a separate service for scheduled jobs called NexPort Scheduling Services, which runs on its own server, compared to previous versions that ran on NexPort Campus servers. NSS ensures background work, such as deleting large organizations, cleaning up subscriptions or indexing user accounts, will not affect the performance of the main user interface.

Users will also experience faster loading of section listings. NexPort Campus section listings in Group Management will now load at a faster speed.

Major Bugs Fixes
With this release, NexPort users will also find issues they may have previously encountered now resolved. NexPort software engineers work closely with customer service to fix any bugs users might confront. One of these bug fixes includes edit options showing correctly when selecting the top organization in the “Recent” groups listing. Before, this option was showing the edit options as non-editable.  

Users will also no longer receive an error when filtering or sorting by “Last Assignment Activity Date” column. Last Assignment Activity Date is not a sortable column in the system. It was inadvertently made sortable in the UI. The column is no longer sortable as of this release.

Other error fixes include:
  • Uploading a file in the transcript evaluation tool no longer generates an error and allows users to upload the file without complication.
  • NexPort internal reporting system pagination for enrollment reports now correctly generates blank pages, while it had previously generated them Ad infinitum.
  • Last update dates in the Ed2go integration API logging now show correctly.
  • Searches for organizations and groups in the Group Management search tool was broken in 5.0.8 and now works again.
  • The database connection pool size can now be configured by system administrators.
  • When running a subscription report, a column for “Number of Enrollments” is available. This column was not being updated properly.
