How ArtCenter College of Design Scaled the YuJa Enterprise Video Platform to Support Online Learning
Traditionally, ArtCenter classes were exclusively held in person. “Art and design can be hard to teach online or through video,” explained Kevin Lipnos, Director of Media Production for ArtCenter Online. With that in mind, when he and a colleague began researching video platforms, they had a rubric to compare capabilities and features in everything from ease of use to security, closed captioning, video storage and more. YuJa was one of 12 companies and platforms Lipnos demoed.
Not only did the college want a platform that could be used for ArtCenter Online, but it had hopes that their chosen solution could be integrated into the rest of the college later. The goal was for the new online program to pilot and collect statistical data that could be used down the road. “When we demoed YuJa, we saw that it was everything we needed and more,” Lipnos said. “YuJa is the unicorn of video platforms — something like this only comes once in a lifetime.” Ultimately, selecting YuJa as its enterprise video platform was an easy decision, Lipnos shared.

About ArtCenter College of Design
Located in Pasadena, California, ArtCenter College of Design is a global leader in art and design education. The college has an enrollment of approximately 2,335 students representing more than 40 countries. It offers 11 undergraduate and seven graduate degree programs in an array of programs.
“YuJa is the unicorn of video platforms — something like this only comes once in a lifetime.”
Instructors have enjoyed the ability to store and secure videos, as well as the analytics provided. Teachers can verify that a video has been watched in its entirety, and can easily caption and embed videos all from a single platform, rather than creating a video, downloading and editing all in separate software. “If instructors need to change something, they can edit without creating another link, interrupting students or creating other issues down the line,” Lipnos shared. “YuJa has been a great tool for us to be able to build online courses that are as close to being inside a room as possible with the multi-stream video player and capturing features. Having multiple features in a single platform makes everything quicker and easier to use for instructors and students alike and has been key running smoothly, especially during the pandemic.”
“Instructors are taking advantage of screen capture, recording and captioning built into YuJa, especially during the pandemic.”
“Every person we interface with has been so helpful in explaining things as we continue to learn and use YuJa’s tools.”
