YuJa’s active learning platform offers a full learning suite to enable the “Connected Classroom” or “Smart Classroom”. The vision of a “Connected Classroom” enables the learning experience to be truly immersive and allows students to engage and participate outside of class-time. For example, with YuJa’s Lecture Capture suite, institutions can capture and preserve course lectures, allowing students to review class lectures and presentations even when they cannot be physically present. Institutions can also implement flipped class structures enabling class time to be used in other ways.
YuJa supports both software-based and appliance-based lecture capture. For podium computers, typically only the software is required; however for more extensive classroom integration with smartboard, speaker-tracking cameras, and document-cameras, a YuJa appliance may be used.
The student can watch the lecture as it airs live, or watch it later. The display screen includes a presentation pane, with access to lecture capture, screen captures and the smartboard. Below the course display, preview panels are available, making it easy to move forward and back within the lecture capture.
YuJa’s Connected Classroom is convenient and easy to use for both faculty and students, encouraging active participation in the class and the learning process. The flexible framework offered by YuJa’s lecture capture and the full Connected Classroom make it ideally suited for traditional and online classrooms.
