Last modified on 13 October 2023 03:52 PM
This article outlines how YuJa videos can be added through the standard eClass editor available in most content areas in the system.
For students, media would most commonly be added to forum posts or in assignments requiring online text submissions. This article will show the process from a student's point of view when adding a video to a forum post, but the process is common to all of the different content entry locations.
To use the YuJa streaming service, turn on Edit mode in the top right of the course. Click on Add an activity or resource, and add YuJa to your course. Use that link for the instructions outlined here.
To add YuJa videos in a forum post, for example, click add Add a new discussion topic, add a subject, open the content editor, click the top left expander icon to expand the additional rows of icons, then select 'YuJa for atto':
The first time a student accesses YuJa through, no media will be available to select so they should select Upload media or Record content:
When uploading, it is possible to drag and drop or browse to upload existing video files. Once selected, these will appear in a progress bar below the uploader while they are in progress:
If students do not have their own media content to add, they can record content.
To record, students will first need to download the YuJa desktop capture application and should select the desktop recording option (browser recording is recommended only if a user is working on a machine that does not have the desktop capture application installed):
Once launched, the capture application allows users to select the video, audio, and screen feeds:
Once they have uploaded or recorded a video, students will need to re-launch the Yuja Media Chooser from the forum post editor. They should now see the media they have added which can then be selected and inserted:
Once the YuJa video title appears in the discussion topic content area, it can be posted into the forum or assignment by clicking Insert Content.
The resulting Forum post will look like this with a hyperlink to the video stored by YuJa:
