SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Lone Star College (LSC), one of the nation’s largest colleges, has signed a five-year agreement to license the YuJa Enterprise Video Platform, which will provide the institution with a media and lecture capture software solution to serve its more than 80,000 students. The institution was replacing Techsmith Knowmia, which recently exited the higher education marketplace.
“Lone Star College was looking for a user-friendly, reliable and responsive solution that streamlines accessibility and is compatible with existing technology”
The college was seeking a cloud-based hosted media capture solution to capture multiple audio and video feeds, as well as host content in a secure environment. The institution highlighted the importance of compliance with all governing laws and the ability to integrate with existing solutions, such as the college’s Learning Management System Desire2Learn, Webex, and others.
“Lone Star College was looking for a user-friendly, reliable and responsive solution that streamlines accessibility and is compatible with existing technology,” said Nathan Arora, Chief Business Officer at YuJa, Inc. “Because of the size of the institution, there is a broad range of users, and they wanted to ensure a smooth transition for everyone. Our goal is always to provide ease of use and interoperability so instructors and students of all skill levels can use the Video Platform’s features.”
The college and its students will benefit from robust and easy-to-use features available in YuJa’s lecture capture, live streaming and sharing tools, as well as the ability to auto-caption media in multiple languages. Built-in tools within YuJa, such as automated production, processing, publishing and managing of video content will help streamline workflows and enable course designers and instructors to create engaging synchronous and asynchronous learning experiences.
