Colleges and universities of all sizes rely upon learning management systems or LMS to provide access to course content for online, flipped, and traditional courses. In order to maximize the usefulness of the LMS, it is essential to select a lecture capture provider and video content management system that integrates with the institution’s chosen LMS.
The D2L Brightspace Learning Management System
D2L Brightspace is a popular LMS option for institutions, providing an intuitive and mobile-friendly interface for users that brings course content to users in the classroom, at home, and on-the-go.
The YuJa Enterprise Video Platform tools integrate easily and effectively with the D2L Brightspace LMS.
D2L Platform Integration
With the YuJa Enterprise Video Platform, lecture capture technology can be available for some or all D2L courses.
Using LTI Integration

LTI integration communicates user and course information from the LMS to the Platform, providing a seamless user experience. Integration options are available to IT Managers through the Platform’s Admin Panel, using the Integrations tab.
