University of North Dakota Improves the Campus Experience: A User Friendly Software Lecture Capture Solution


Broadly speaking, Lecture Capture can be utilized to provide a handful of software and hardware solutions whether you are looking to capture PowerPoint slides, access various webcams, or record multiple screens. For associate professor Rob Stupnisky at the University of North Dakota, Stupnisky found YuJa to be a user-friendly platform for creating lectures that online learners can access 24/7.

“I’m not an ‘IT’ person; I’m not even that ‘techie’ a person,” said Stupnisky. “But I’ve found YuJa to be really easy to work with. And I like how easily it integrates into Blackboard.”

YuJa Enterprise Video Platform allows users to create and share video-based lecture capture content that can capture multiple videos, audio, and screen sources with a powerful – yet simple – desktop lecture capture software application. As mentioned in the University of North Dakota’s original blog post, Stupnisky placed himself in the shoes of an online student and pictured a student who wanted to establish a real connection with the instructor. By delivering recorded lessons, students can visually see Stupnisky teach are provided a more engaging learning experience.

Office Presentation

Finding the Right Solutions for Your Virtual Events


The shift from in-person settings to virtual settings for many institutions continues as we approach the end of summer. For many universities, corporations, and government institutions, it is paramount to deploy the necessary tools for the proper event to accommodate the respective audience size and setting. Whether you are live streaming a webinar, hosting a company conference, hosting a local town hall meeting, or managing a virtual classroom, let us take a deep dive and discover the unique types of virtual events and their key differences.

 

Office Presentation

Finding the Right Solutions for Your Virtual Events

 

1. Video Conferencing / Virtual Meetings

A video conference, also referred to as a virtual meeting, can consist of a small/medium-sized group of individuals who can interact and collaborate in a session. Such events are typically used for daily collaboration, and with the more people working and learning remotely, video conferences have slowly become the main use-case to replace in-person meetings.

Nonetheless, each organization is unique and operates differently. Your organization is provided with a wide range of features tailored to your organization’s needs including desktop sharing, real-time whiteboards, and group collaboration tools. These tools help account for scalability and account for the type of meeting that is conducted. A corporate meeting can benefit from a screen sharing capability to enhance a presentation, while a virtual tutoring session can benefit from a real-time whiteboard to help learners follow along and stay focused. Regardless of the purpose, effective video conferencing capabilities can ensure that viewers are not just listening, but can actively participate, as well.

 

 

 

2. Live Streaming / Webcasting

Typically geared towards events with a larger audience, webcasts involve a larger audience with more participants listening compared to a video conference. A webinar, or webcast, typically involves a speaker, or small collective of speakers, delivering a presentation to a large audience that can submit questions or respond to polls.

Like virtual meetings, live streaming webcasts allow groups to collaborate in real-time and engage with the content. This unique, virtual event is often used for large scale presentations in a corporate environment, large presentations involving a speaker, or admission/graduation-related events in an education environment. An enterprise video platform with interactive live streaming capabilities can help your institution live stream to any audience size no matter the occasion.

 

 

 

 

3. Flipped Classrooms

In a flipped classroom environment, instructors incorporate blended learning aimed to foster student engagement and active learning in a remote setting. As many institutions continue remote learning operations indefinitely, online learning has become vital in ensuring that students are on course with their learning to prevent the coronavirus slide.

An Enterprise Video Platform offers features that not only reflect the in-person learning experience, but also includes collaboration tools to enhance the learning experience beyond the traditional classroom environment. Such tools include individual break-out rooms for group collaboration, in-video quizzing to ensure student engagement, raised-hands features to follow along, and a real-time whiteboard to annotate and engage with the learning material. Instructors can deliver interactive content for virtual office hours and online classrooms. Further, available solutions such as the YuJa Enterprise Video Platform offers LTI integration that can directly embed within your institution’s learning management system (LMS).

4. Virtual Classrooms

A secure virtual classroom platform enables instructors to create immersive educational experiences. In a virtual classroom, your institution can help set up instructor led-training, online classes, office hours, and tutorials right from your web browser. In fact, what is unique about virtual classrooms is that users can choose how they want to manage individual breakout rooms automatically or manually at any time. Students are also given the option to share their screens, draw and annotate live notes, and raise their hands without disrupting the instructor. These solutions ensure that your students can not only participate but are actively engaging with the material no matter where they are. An all-in-one virtual classroom solution offers your staff and students the closest experience to an in-person classroom.

 

 

While each of these virtual settings serve different purposes, an Enterprise Video Platform offers your organization all the flexible tools needed to serve any meeting, no matter the occasion. To find additional use-cases and potential solutions available to your organization, visit www.yuja.com to discover how YuJa’s portfolio of enterprise media and engagement tools can help your organization.

2020 YuJa Scholarship Winner – Dara Nicole Díaz Ríos


Congratulations to Dara Nicole Díaz Ríos as the winner of the 2020 YuJa Scholarship Contest

 

TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF: 2020 Scholarship Contest Winner Dara Nicole Díaz Ríos

I am Dara, I was born and raised in Nicaragua and am moving to Boston to attend Emerson College and follow my dream of becoming an integral visual artist. I would like to be a visual activist and a documentarist. My background is in graphic arts as well as drawing, painting, and sculpting. I love teaching and sharing my knowledge as a way of giving back to my community.

 

 

 

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR BEST EXPERIENCE IN SCHOOL?

The experience of being an exchange student in San Francisco was for me a transformational academic experience. One of my fondest memories of my semester abroad was an incredible experience that took me home; on a cold spring afternoon as I was leaving the university gym, I saw my dance teacher from Nicaragua coming toward me. Coincidentally she was teaching at USF and invited me to her dance class with the school’s company. This wonderful opportunity opened my eyes to the realization that the world is more interconnected than ever and that we can connect with our roots anywhere.

 

HOW DO YOU ENVISION YOURSELF IN 5 YEARS?

By 2025, I will be developing new ways to distribute more inclusive and accessible artistic content for rural Latin American communities. I see myself getting to know and collaborating with rural populations to document and preserve their traditions and give them the gift of art that has been so transformational for me. Additionally, I know I will be continuing with my education a process that will never end.

 

WHAT DO YOU HOPE TO LEARN FROM YOUR SCHOOL EXPERIENCE?

My main interest is to be able to develop my own voice, to understand my unique way of seeing the world, and to be able to communicate it to create a positive impact. I am confident that my university experience will help me build a network of artists who have the same interest in developing a global union for artistic inclusivity and democratization.

 

WHAT EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES DO YOU ENJOY?

My curiosity is infinite, I am always open to new experiences and eager to learn from others. The breadth of my hobbies is extensive: sports, gardening, all kinds of plastic, visual and performing arts, and any opportunity to give back and share with my community. I especially enjoy listening, writing, and sharing stories as this is a way to mix my vocation with my passions.

 

 

 

We would like to thank all the participants for entering in our 2020 Annual YuJa Essay Contest! 

We were blown away by the record number of participants and interest in our Essay Contest and we look forward to your participation next year in our 2021 Annual YuJa Essay Contest.
