Piedmont Community College campus

Part of the North Carolina Community College System, Piedmont Community College has selected the YuJa Enterprise Video Platform to serve the institution with a media creation, hosting, storage and distribution solution campuswide. YuJa will replace VidGrid, its former video platform, which has phased out its education offering.

“One of the key elements for the institution was ease of use. YuJa offers a simple, intuitive, efficient and cost-effective solution that meets the needs of the institution, instructors and students.”

Piedmont Community College administrators wanted a Video Platform with similar functionalities as its former vendor but that provided more robust features to its learning environment. In addition to traditional use cases such as recording and editing lectures, the college will benefit from auto-captioning and the ability to edit captions, video editing, embedding video quizzes, in-video commenting, and the ability to share media both internally and externally. Piedmont Community College and its learners also will benefit from comprehensive analytics, gradebook integration, adaptive bitrate streaming, device compatibility, and other user-friendly features that enable success for instructors and students. YuJa’s Video Platform integrates with the Blackboard Learning Management System. 

“One of the key elements for the institution was ease of use. YuJa offers a simple, intuitive, efficient and cost-effective solution that meets the needs of the institution, instructors and students,” said Nathan Arora, Chief Business Officer at YuJa, Inc. “We work with a number of institutions in the North Carolina Community College System to provide quality ed-tech solutions, and we’re pleased to expand our relationship with the system by adding Piedmont Community College.”
