Yuja Video Platform Overview

Article Last Updated June 2022

This article provides a general overview for instructors using the Yuja enterprise video platform. The platform provides instructors and students with a place to upload and host videos, as well as tools for recording and editing, and pathways to import recordings directly from Zoom. Yuja also provides a means of securing videos, giving users fine control over playback and download access. 

Instructors may choose to host videos in Yuja while embedding or sharing them elsewhere on eClass, or they can create a course "channel" for students to browse all of the available course videos from one place. 

Instructors will need to add the tool to their courses before they can utilize these features. For a comprehensive overview of using YuJa, instructors can also watch this recorded training session YuJa delivered for the U of A.


Accessing Yuja

Users outside of eClass can now access the system directly at https://ualberta.yuja.com. When using the tool in conjunction with credit courses, the recommended process is to create a YuJa linkage as this will automatically manage student access to a course channel on the platform.

You can refer to the following tutorial for quick directions to upload a video file and publish it to your course channel: Uploading a Video to Yuja and Sharing it with Students
