Today, 92 percent of universities have a presence on YouTube, sharing video content with the world at large. Public access to video content is important, but most universities and corporations also have a large amount of multimedia content that isn’t relevant for a larger audience.
YuJa offers institutions the ability to create public channels, accessible to everyone, but also to effectively manage a CampusTube or Campus channel with access only to authenticated users. In addition, individual permissions can be set for the Campus channel, allowing all logged in individuals to access content, only instructors or only students.
This is one of the many benefits of a smart, scalable media management solution. You can make video content accessible to who you choose, when you choose!
What You Need to Know
YuJa’s media management tools are simple to use, whether you’re an IT Manager or an instructor. Video files can be uploaded and shared in minutes, and can be quickly published to various channels, from course channels to public channels, to the CampusTube. Files are safe, secure, and accessible.
In the CampusTube library, each folder can have specific permissions based on role or user, or a combination of both. This means that, for instance, a department could grant all majors permission to see their video content, but not other students. In addition, it makes it simple to identify files available to just students, just instructors, or just IT managers or any combination of those three.
How to Use Your CampusTube
There are many different ways to use a CampusTube to incorporate information that you’d like to disseminate widely to instructors, staff and students, but not publicly.
- Faculty and staff training. Diversity training, instruction on new procedures or benefits, and information about upcoming administrative changes can easily be shared to staff and instructors via the Campus channel.
- Departmental information. Individual departments can produce videos for students to help them learn more about different majors and educational options available.
- Student services videos. Students need access to information about campus services and financial aid. Video learning is an ideal way to share this!
- Lecture captures. Sharing lecture captures with all students is an ideal way to provide students with new information about different majors or classes.
- Orientation materials. New students have to take in a great deal of information very quickly. Consider offering lecture captures or videos to reiterate orientation information for incoming freshmen.
