Prior to the agreement, St. Francis College had light recording capabilities, but was seeking a more robust, innovative and engaging capture and video management tool that integrated with Canvas, their learning management system. The college also was seeking an automated recording tool for lecture capture, along with accessibility options, all of which are a part of the YuJa Enterprise Video Platform.
“St. Francis College needed a comprehensive approach to lecture capture, video management, video engagement and video conferencing, which is what they found with the YuJa Video Enterprise Platform,” said Nathan Arora, Chief Business Officer at YuJa, adding that the Enterprise Video Platform serves as a one-stop shop to meet the educational institution’s unique needs. “The college also found that the YuJa Enterprise Video Platform was the only solution on the market that offered remote proctoring, another tool that has become paramount in digital learning.”
Since the migration, St. Francis College has fully moved its existing video assets. Instructors can tap into the YuJa Media Chooser to embed video content throughout Canvas discussions, assignments and modules.
Training and support also has facilitated instructor’s use of the Video Conference tool to host online courses where students participate over an audio bridge, whiteboard and breakout rooms. The Mobile App supports the recording and distribution of on-demand lectures and the Video Editor enables modification of content uploaded to or recorded with the Video Platform.
