University of South Carolina Aiken Deploys Lecture Capture with Interactive Features
The University of South Carolina Aiken is rolling out a digital lecture capture and media management solution campuswide. The institution embarked on a year-long study and evaluation process, ultimately selecting the YuJa Enterprise Video Platform.
YuJa’s toolset includes:
- Desktop software-based lecture capture and live streaming, able to capture multiple video, audio and screen sources;
- Hardware appliance lecture capture and live streaming;
- Browser-based capture, enabling instructors to record content using any Apple or PC web browser; and
- Mobile lecture capture for tablets and smartphones, via native Apple iOS and Android apps.
In addition, the platform includes a variety of social learning tools, including real-time discussions, video podcasting, course instant messaging, video quizzes and polls, the ability to create a private media channel, and other media sharing options.
“YuJa will serve as USC Aiken’s primary video lecture capture solution but it also has other features like video conferencing, opportunities for discussion, integrating polls and quizzes into Blackboard, group functionality, analytics and full mobile functionality,” explained staffers from the University of South Carolina Aiken’s Office of Distance Learning. “The YuJa tool is available for all USCA faculty, staff and students who authenticate via Blackboard.”
The Office of Distance Learning plans to offer workshops and tutorials to help users understand the tools and functionality of the new platform.
