Touro College and University System and YuJa Align to Consolidate Video Management and Lecture Capture Solutions Across 30 Campuses


SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Touro College and University System has engaged YuJa to consolidate video solutions across all campuses in support of the TouroOne initiative. Headquartered in New York State, the University System has campuses in Nevada, California, Illinois, and Connecticut, with additional branch campuses in Berlin, Jerusalem, and Moscow.

“YuJa’s partnership with leading consortiums such as Touro College and University System exemplify our ability to deliver both high-impact and large-scale video solutions to large university systems”

TouroOne is the outgrowth of Project Enterprise, a successful effort to unite Touro College and University Systems’ (TCUS) numerous campuses administratively, so they are operating as an integrated unit and in a consistent manner. TouroOne encompasses finance, student services, financial aid, human resources and related systems throughout the TCUS.

YuJa Enterprise Video Platform enables automated workflows, including hardware-based lecture capture, software-based recording, and media management solutions. The contract was awarded following a rigorous Request for Proposal (RFP) process defined by the University System’s detailed functional requirements for video storage and streaming, video recording, auto-captioning and transcription, live streaming capabilities, seamless integration with multiple existing Learning Management Systems (LMS), and integration with existing enterprise systems. The contract also includes transitioning from all major video product vendors currently used within TCUS.

“YuJa’s partnership with leading consortiums such as Touro College and University System exemplify our ability to deliver both high-impact and large-scale video solutions to large university systems,” said Dr. Ajit Singh, Chief Executive Officer at YuJa Inc.

YuJa Expands Presence in University of California Schools Through Partnership With UC Riverside


SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The University of California, Riverside (UC Riverside), a public research university encompassed by the University of California System, has selected YuJa for its campus-wide enterprise video and capture platform.

“The YuJa Enterprise Video Platform is a one-stop shop for all video needs”

Prior to the partnership, the university had implemented some tools for in-room lecture capture, however; they recognized a need for centralized video management, engagement tools, accessibility, and integration with their current learning management systems.

With the implementation of YuJa’s video solution, UC Riverside faculty and students now have a place to store videos, record lectures, video conference, live stream, and more, all within an integrated video platform. “The YuJa Enterprise Video Platform is a one-stop shop for all video needs,” said Nathan Arora, Chief Business Officer at YuJa, Inc.

One unique point of differentiation within UC Riverside is that the university had not only one, but two learning management systems in use, including Blackboard and Canvas. YuJa integrates with both to offer a comprehensive solution that provides a variety of opportunities and tools to serve various multi-faceted video workflows, from recording to live streaming, and offers tools for engagement.

Like with many institutions, the Covid-19 pandemic added an urgency to deployment.

“UC Riverside had a quick timeline to get everything implemented and to get faculty trained,” Arora noted. “Our relationship with other University of California schools helped simplify the process and meet their needs quickly.”

Augusta Technical College Selects YuJa for Site-Wide Lecture Capture and Video CMS Solutions


SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–YuJa Inc., a leader in enterprise media solutions, this week announced a partnership with Augusta Technical College, a public, two-year college located in Augusta, Ga.

“Another benefit Augusta Technical College officials were interested in is the ability to encourage and facilitate interaction”

The college had historically self-hosted its enterprise systems, but more recently migrated to a cloud-based platform strategy. Administrators were seeking innovative solutions to scale video solutions and streamline instruction for their more than 4,000 students. Now, instructors will have the ability to not only record and share video content, but to track analytics and viewing behavior to pinpoint where students might need more help.

“Another benefit Augusta Technical College officials were interested in is the ability to encourage and facilitate interaction,” said Nathan Arora, Chief Business Officer at YuJa, Inc. “Students can ask questions through in-line video commenting, take quizzes and interact with their peers, while professors can overlay quizzes in their video, provide feedback to students and use the integration abilities with their online grade center to record grades.”

The YuJa Enterprise Video Platform integrates within Augusta Technical College’s existing LMS, which means instructors can create content directly from Blackboard without students having to visit another platform.

YuJa Has Become a Major Platform for University of California, Riverside’s Remote Instruction


UCR faculty members and students have turned to a number of online platforms for remote instruction and learning in the last several months.

This summer, integrated video platform YuJa has gained popularity.

The campus began using YuJa in June after searching for a single platform that could cover all instructional needs, said Israel Fletes, director of academic technology. About 5,000 students are making use of the program for their summer courses, Fletes said. He expects that to jump to as many as 25,000 students in the fall quarter.

“I get the impression it’s the platform of choice because at all my faculty meetings — department meetings, individual meetings — there’s a mention and discussion of YuJa more than any of the other tools,” Fletes said.

Zoom, Google Drive, Vimeo, and YouTube are some of the video repositories that have been used by instructors during the pandemic. But none of them offer the full range of options that YuJa does, he said.

“YuJa is a very robust video ecosystem,” he said. “Aside from video streaming, it contains many different features and tools.”

It offers video storage, recording, conferencing, and livestreaming, all of which are integrated within the campus Learning Management System. That means the content is protected behind the UCR Central Authentication Server, or CAS.

Fletes said that integration allows instructors to link video content with course materials in a number of ways. Lectures are recorded and stored, so they can be easily accessed by students searching for a particular lesson. Instructors can break up a lecture into segments that are paused while students are quizzed on the lesson. It keeps students engaged and allows instructors to gauge how much their students are learning, Fletes said.

The platform also includes a video proctoring feature where students can self-record while taking an exam, and instructors can review all student activity as they take the exam, Fletes said.

YuJa provides unlimited video storage and auto-captioning for its videos, as well as 24/7 technical support for students and faculty members who need help.

UCR, UC Irvine, and UC Santa Cruz are part of a group within the system working together to share notes and best practices regarding YuJa.

The campus has long needed the video and multimedia tools offered by a platform like YuJa, but the pandemic only increased the urgency, Fletes said. Even after the campus returns to normal, he expects its use will grow as more resources are made available to students digitally.
