The University of Detroit Mercy has selected the YuJa Enterprise Video Platform to replace its former video content management and streaming services. The Video Platform, which will be available to students and instructors at seven colleges and schools, will enable the schools that comprise the institution with an all-in-one solution to record, edit, caption and distribute video and other content. In addition, the university will be able to take advantage of other tools that increase interactivity and drive collaboration, such as video quizzing, in-video commenting, and analytics.
“The YuJa Media Library provides a streamlined method for storing and sharing video, audio, and other media files with your students”
“The YuJa Media Library provides a streamlined method for storing and sharing video, audio, and other media files with your students,” the University of Detroit Mercy’s Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning website outlines for its instructors. “In addition to making it easy to import video recorded in other sources (such as PowerPoint) then share those videos with only the students in a particular class, the YuJa Media Library can also be used to share video or audio streams with folks outside the University, record and/or edit desktop video, store and share images, provide students with audio and/or video feedback on an assignment, get detailed viewership statistics, and incorporate assessments into videos.”
The university had a number of disparate platforms that were combined to create a more efficient, secure and collaborative platform. “As a leader in ed-tech solutions, we know how valuable an all-in-one video solution is for institutions of all sizes,” said Nathan Arora, Chief Business Officer at YuJa, Inc. “We’re excited to help the University of Detroit Mercy make learning more engaging and collaborative.”
