The cloud-based storage capabilities within YuJa allows for ease in organizing and storing videos,
documents and other files. Faculty have historically been reluctant to move all of their videos to a
single location because of storage capacity limitations, the potential for having to move them later and
anxiety over losing files and videos they worked hard to create, Leo noted. “The storage parameters in
YuJa are phenomenal, scalable, and so much more cost effective for the college.”
Madison Area Technical College administrators, faculty and staff are excited about the college’s future
with YuJa. In fact, the creation of VR (virtual reality) content is already underway in the Center for
Excellence in Teaching and Learning. They’re also looking forward to taking advantage of 360-degree
video, leaning more heavily on YuJa’s storage solutions, and are considering more ways to integrate
tools such as Webex.
