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.
