University of Wyoming Selects YuJa Enterprise Video Platform as All-In-One Solution to Serve Approximately 12,000 Students Systemwide
The University of Wyoming, located in Laramie, Wyoming, has selected the YuJa Enterprise Video Platform as an all-in-one solution video content management system to serve approximately 12,000 students at its main and subsidiary campuses, as well as students in its distance degree and certificate programs. YuJa will replace VidGrid, its former video platform, which phased out its education offering.
“YuJa’s implementation team is experienced in helping institutions of all sizes work through transitioning to a new platform.”
The institution was seeking a user-friendly Video Platform that could be used by faculty, staff, and students to record, upload, share, store, manage, and organize video content to meet the university’s needs. In addition, administrators wanted a solution that offered in-video quiz integration, captioning, a variety of content management tools, user support, and compatibility with existing solutions, including the Canvas Learning Management System. In addition to these features, the institution will benefit from comprehensive analytics, gradebook integration, adaptive bitrate streaming, device compatibility, and more, which will help enable success for instructors and students.
“Video has become an essential component of instruction at the University of Wyoming. It has been integral for nearly 30 years in delivering content to distance and campus students, both synchronously and asynchronously,” the institution’s RFP noted.
“YuJa’s implementation team is experienced in helping institutions of all sizes work through transitioning to a new platform,” said Nathan Arora, Chief Business Officer at YuJa, Inc. “We’re committed to providing the ed-tech tools colleges and universities need to provide high-quality video and media content that enriches instruction, and we’re excited for the University of Wyoming to experience YuJa’s robust functionalities.”
