The governing body unanimously selected YuJa because of its integration with its existing Learning Management System, Blackboard, and its video streaming, management and organization capabilities. Accessibility through auto-captioning, the ability to share content securely, and engagement capabilities through features like in-video quizzing and analytics also weighed into the college system’s overall selection.
“YuJa is not just a recording tool, but a full scale video management platform that serves students, faculty, staff and administrators,” said Nathan Arora, Chief Business Officer at YuJa, Inc. “The ability to quickly and easily scale, along with managing and organizing video and media is important for a college system of this size. We’re excited to serve as the system’s video partner to help them in their mission to improve the quality of life and employability of its students.”
YuJa is replacing the college system’s former enterprise video provider, TechSmith Knowmia, which announced that it was phasing out enterprise education video hosting earlier this year. YuJa is offering migration incentives to help ease the transition, which includes live, total user customer service, dedicated account management staffing and consistent support, all backed by the team’s award-winning product engineering and operations teams.
