YuJa serves as Brock’s video hosting and management system and is available to all users. It is fully integrated with Brightspace and can be used to upload and embed video and audio content directly. It can also simply store video and supply shareable links for external use.
YuJa provides automatic caption and transcript generation, both browser-based and desktop screen capture options, relatively-simple editing tools, and engagement options including a quiz feature that can be linked to Brightspace Grades.
There are other methods of uploading video to Brightspace. These are not recommended as they provide fewer management options and likely result in an inferior student experience.
YuJa has completely replaced Echo360 and provides most of the same features. All Echo360 content was transferred to YuJa and can be found in a user’s YuJa Media Library. Embedded videos and links within Brightspace have also been updated. Contact email@example.com with any issues.
YuJa media can be inserted anywhere the HTML/text editor appears in Brightspace, including Content items, Announcements, Assignment descriptions, and even Quiz questions. YuJa uploads are also stored in the YuJa Media Library and will be automatically available for future use. Individual videos, folders, and even curated playlists can also be shared externally.
YuJa can be accessed directly when adding content in Brightspace but most management and editing features are available through the Media Library.
