College officials requested an RFP detailing its need for a comprehensive software solution to provide screen recording, lecture capture, web video broadcasting, video editing, video indexing with the ability to easily search to find specific course content in videos, integrated assessments within video, and analytics. Integration into the college’s Learning Management System, Blackboard, also was an essential requirement to help increase student access to course materials, their engagement and overall success.
“The pandemic presented a number of major challenges for colleges and universities nationwide. WCJC is committed to helping students succeed within all modes of content delivery, and was seeking a partner to effectively and efficiently deliver all content regardless of mode of delivery or learning style,” said Nathan Arora, Chief Business officer at YuJa. “The Video Platform will allow instructors to create more engaging, interactive and accessible content, enhancing the college experience for its students.”
Prior to awarding the contract with YuJa, the college did not have a formal enterprise video platform to record, distribute and store media content. Now, instructors will be able to not only create content more effectively, but can take advantage of a wide range of tools to help increase accessibility and engagement, leading to more successful student outcomes.
