Yuja Video Platform Overview
Last modified on 30 January 2024 02:52 PM

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 videos, share them with course channels, tools for recording and editing, and a pathway to import recordings directly from Zoom. Yuja also provides users fine control over playback and download access as a means of sharing videos securely. 

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 to begin using 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 When using the tool in conjunction with credit courses, the recommended process is to create a YuJa linkage as this will automatically create a course channel on the platform and manage student access.
