University officials were seeking a solution for both personal and classroom capture that enables digital recording, screen capture, audio and video, and that provides storage and delivery of media to serve its more than 19,000 students from over 150 countries. Providing tools to enhance accessibility, ease of use, and the ability to integrate with the university’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) also were important considerations.
Prior to the deployment of YuJa, the university didn’t have a unified Video Platform. Instead, it used ad-hoc implementations across a variety of systems, including proprietary systems and arrangements made through the course of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Not only was the University of Reading looking for a Lecture Capture and Video CMS solution, but officials were interested in practical and technical support for staff to use the platform, and a team that could help guide staff and students to make the best use of the tools to enhance teaching and learning,” said Nathan Arora, Chief Business Officer at YuJa, Inc. “YuJa has a dedicated team of implementation specialists to help integrate systems and train faculty and staff.”
