Adding the YuJa Enterprise Media Platform to a Course
Article Last Updated January 2021
This article describes how instructors can add the YuJa video integration into their course. This external tool links to the U of A's enterprise video platform - a full-featured media storage, streaming, and editing suite. The tool can be added to non-credit courses or sandboxes for access outside of Bear Tracks sections and allows direct linking to specific videos on YuJa.
For more information about YuJa, instructors can view the vendors overview video and should also check the list of locally developed tips and best practices for using the system.

1. In whichever content section area of the course required, with editing turned on, click Add an activity or resource then select YuJa Media:
2. In the External tool settings, enter the following settings:
Once the tool has been added, instructors must click the link to create a channel for their course within YuJa.

1. Same as above.
2. In the External tool, enter the following settings:
