About UC Riverside

UCR’s strong core programs and new and emerging disciplines are housed within three colleges, four professional schools, and more than 20 interdisciplinary research centers. With more than 25,000 students and 3,800 faculty, UCR is pioneering research with economic, scientific, and social impact on the real-world challenges faced in California and beyond.
“YuJa facilitates the migration. In addition to providing the added storage we need, materials can be accessed in YuJa for those who have already uploaded their course content. Yuja became the storage partner for Canvas during the integration, and has proven to be very popular and well received.”
The university also uses YuJa Video Test Proctoring, which Fletes said has been instrumental during the pandemic. “YuJa Proctoring was a lifesaver for us. With our rapid move to remote instruction, we didn’t have the resources to proctor every exam,” Fletes explained. “Instructors have been making use of it to protect the integrity of their course exams.”
Because the university has a significant number of first generation college students and students from lower income families and communities, it opened a laptop and network hotspot loaner program for students to access courses remotely. YuJa’s Platform enables access to course content from any device, supporting inclusivity and equity for students. “YuJa helps meet our needs for inclusivity and equity by providing ready access to students who may not be able to come on campus. They can learn anywhere at any time,” Fletes said.
“Because we are in two different teaching modalities, having a single platform that both groups can access is essential.”
