Q. How do students submit video or audio to NILE for assessment?


Students can submit video to NILE using MediaSpace which is a secure and protected video streaming platform provided by the University of Northampton. MediaSpace enables students to record upload, store and share videos, audio and images which can also be easily submitted to NILE as part of a module assessment.

3. Click the Submit your work left-hand menu link.

4. Click on the module assessment title.



5. Click on the Write Submission button.

14. Copy and Paste the Submission Receipt ID into Word or another note-taking app, as this Submission Receipt ID is your proof of a submission.

15. Check your inbox for a message from do-not-reply@blackboard.com for a copy of your submission receipt which you should also keep as proof of a successful submission.



What are the accepted File Types and File Sizes for MediaSpace?

MediaSpace accepts most common video, audio and image file types or any size, but the upload needs to be from a strong internet connection if the video file is large. You can upload from any location but remember that upload speeds from home internet service providers are often slow compared to uploading from the University campus.
