Nevada State College Extends and Signs 3 Year Agreement With Yuja Corporation to Provide Campus-wide Room-based Capture and Video Management
SAN JOSE, Calif., May 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — YuJa Corporation formally announces a partnership with Nevada State College. This partnership began in 2015 and extends, with this agreement, into 2020 to provide campus-wide video learning tools with the cloud-hosted YuJa Enterprise Video Platform.
In support of Nevada State College’s mission of the advancement of diversity and serving a broader – and traditionally under-served – student population, YuJa’s Enterprise Video Platform harnesses the power of video to enable more flexible video learning options for the entire student population including first-generation students, English Language Learners (ELLs), non-traditional and distance-education students.
Additionally, the team at YuJa is genuinely interested in understanding our needs and has been able to implement product enhancements based directly on our feedback. In regards to the platform, it’s reliable, feature rich, and integrates seamlessly with our LMS. The ability to live stream, perform both hardware and software captures, and automatically caption both captured and uploaded content has made this an invaluable system for our institution. Nevada State College is extremely pleased to have transitioned to YuJa and we look forward to continue our relationship into the future,” said Brian Chongtai, Director of Information & Technology Services at Nevada State College.
Nevada State College replaced their existing capture hardware with the YuJa RCS-430 Hardware Hub and integrated their Canvas Learning Management System (LMS) with the cloud-hosted YuJa Enterprise Video Platform. Using YuJa, Nevada State College is able to deploy video learning solutions in their classrooms, conference rooms and auditoriums. This enables a number of key scenarios for Nevada State College including:
- Traditional room-based lecture capture, including integration with room cameras, audio systems and presentation
- Flipped classroom content creation with YuJa’s software-based lecture capture tools.
- Full-scale video and digital asset management with the YuJa cloud-hosted media management suite.
- Live streaming for synchronous learning in distance-education and evening degree programs.
“We have been working with Nevada State College since 2015 and this expanded multi-year commitment is a recognition of our organization’s commitment to providing not only outstanding enterprise video solutions, but also unmatched support and value,” said Dr. Ajit Singh, President of YuJa Corporation.
The YuJa Enterprise Video Platform provides administrators, faculty, staff and students with a comprehensive and engaging experience that fully integrates into Nevada State College’s existing Canvas Learning Management system. This has enabled Nevada State College to extend their existing enterprise technology investments into modern digital learning and pedagogies.
