SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ontario-based public research university Toronto Metropolitan University, formerly Ryerson University, recently engaged with YuJa, Inc. to provide a cloud-based video hosting and streaming solution.
“We’re excited to help Toronto Metropolitan University better serve students and staff as needs evolve in the educational landscape”
The University was seeking an enterprise media platform with more modern and robust features that also offers adaptability to meet evolving needs as the need for remote and hybrid learning and teaching increases. Dedicated, timely support and the ability to integrate into the university’s LMS, D2L Brightspace, also were important capabilities for the selected vendor.
The university uses its video streaming and hosting platform for both educational and administrative purposes, from lectures and course projects to large scale events, as well as to host various user-created content, recordings of live events and webinars hosted by departments within the TMU community.
In addition to the regular online lectures and workshops, with the institution’s People First philosophy, institutional leaders noted in the RFP that it became apparent that the university needed to have an excellent video streaming infrastructure to allow community members to participate remotely in workshops, lectures and live-streamed events.
YuJa meets all of the university’s needs with a scalable, comprehensive cloud-based video platform. “We’re excited to help Toronto Metropolitan University better serve students and staff as needs evolve in the educational landscape,” said Nathan Arora, Chief Business Officer at YuJa, inc. “YuJa’s Video Platform makes it easy to record and host content so instructors can focus on the important work of teaching their students.”
