Case Study: University of Calgary Finds Video and Media Partner with YuJa Video Platform

“Instructors had expressed the need for a video platform for several years, but there wasn’t a campus-wide solution,” explained Isadora Mok-Kulakova, Online Learning Environment Lead at the Taylor Institute for Teaching and Learning at the University of Calgary.

In response, institutional leaders formed a Video Content Management Advisory Group with representation from Information Technologies, Taylor Institute, Supply Chain Management, Students’ Union and key personnel from various faculties and units. The group sought a solution that would work in both blended and online learning, that integrated well with D2L Brightspace, allowed single sign-on, and that was easy to use both for instructors and students.

Case Study: Implementing a Scalable, Accessible and Affordable Enterprise Video Solution at Aiken Technical College

But like many institutions, college officials found that as it began housing more media combined with the rise in demand for video content, its former vendor quickly became too expensive. ATC officials also were seeking a platform that could expand the college’s accessibility with features like auto-captioning, which automatically generates a word-by-word searchable transcript of media that can quickly and easily be edited with the Video Editor.

“We were already looking for a new video partner, but the pandemic sped up our process exponentially, as we had to shift everything online within a few weeks,” O’Hara-Goergen shared. “It was huge because instructors suddenly had to shift gears.”

Case Study: How UC Riverside Supports Emergency Remote Instruction with YuJa’s Video Platform

When the COVID-19 pandemic struck, officials at UC Riverside (UCR) quickly realized they needed a comprehensive video platform to usher in a new era in online learning. “Out of the pandemic, we realized we didn’t have a proper video platform,” explained Israel Fletes, Director of Academic Technology at UC Riverside’s Exploration Center for Innovative Teaching and Engagement (XCITE). “We had various limited tools to support online learning, but no unified campus wide platform.” YuJa was recommended to UCR by a sister University of California campus, UC Santa Cruz, as Fletes and the Continuity of Instruction workgroup explored various platforms.

While the pandemic was the driver in finding a robust video solution, Fletes said they looked beyond the crisis as they evaluated each solution. Learn how YuJa not only met but exceeded the college’s expectations and facilitated the transition to fully remote learning in the midst of the pandemic.

When the college began creating ArtCenter Online, an immersive, online learning experience for applied art and design education, department leaders began their search for streaming platforms that could host video for courses as they were developed.

YuJa was one of 12 companies demoed.

Case Study: Bronx Community College – Deploying a Video Platform to Meet Current and Future Instructional Needs

Bronx Community College is a forward thinking college, but when it came to technology to record and host videos, its former in-house server and labor intensive programs were no longer meeting the college’s needs. In fact, the legacy program the college used didn’t have a user interface where faculty or students could log in. It was inefficient and cumbersome for all parties, which is why the college knew it needed to invest in a more robust solution that could not only act as a video repository, but that could streamline processes and workflows for students and staff.

Albert Robinson, Associate Director of the Center for Teaching, Learning and Technology at Bronx Community College, said he knew the perfect solution existed, and further, he knew there were other colleges in the CUNY system that had gone through the process and were pleased with their results. “I reached out to my colleagues in the CUNY community and was connected to YuJa through a Lehman College contact,” Robinson recalled. “An account executive at YuJa actually gave us a demonstration, and right away we could see the ease of use.”

Several years into using the YuJa Enterprise Video Platform, the college still uses it as its main video repository. Additionally, all training, events, and guest speakers are recorded and posted to the Video Platform.

Prior to implementing YuJa Enterprise Video Platform, instructors were using a number of products to aid in their instruction, combined with another media solution that didn’t effectively serve the college’s needs. “Instructors had a habit of storing files in the learning management system, which is a band-aid solution for media storage,” explained David Leo, a Faculty Technologist at MATC.

As university officials searched for a new Video Platform, there was an immediate attraction to YuJa. “The Video Platform was so compelling, not only compared to what we were coming from, but also what was available in the marketplace,” he stated. “It was night and day, competitively speaking.”

In addition to features like in-line video quizzing, engagement analytics and gradebook synchronization, YuJa offers “accessibility, accessibility, accessibility,” Leo emphasized.
