SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The University of Alberta recently contracted YuJa, Inc. to provide video capture and streaming services to enhance its current digital learning environment for instructors and students.
The university stated in its Request for Proposal that the selected platform would serve two purposes, including to better utilize video as a synchronous, asynchronous and hybrid learning tool, as well as to capture and deliver streaming of large meetings and events like convocation.
