What is YuJa?

YuJa is the lecture capture, video storage, streaming, and creation platform used at W&L, replacing Tegrity (which is being discontinued by McGraw-Hill in June 2020). Users can create or upload audio/video to an online environment, edit media, and stream audio/video content to a Canvas course. In addition, the software automatically captions all content created or uploaded.

ITS survey results consistently reveal that students rank lecture capture as one of the top learning resources available on campus.

What if I am not in a YuJa-enabled classroom?

Faculty may request that YuJa be installed in any classroom on campus by emailing help@wlu.edu. Such installations are made on a term-by-term basis as resources permit. In addition, YuJa can be installed on any computer, enabling recordings to be made for class from home or office.

How long are my YuJa recordings retained by ITS?

Retention guidelines permit all recordings to remain in the system for two years plus one term -- or beyond that as long as storage/usage hours permit -- to enable past course recordings to be used in a current or future term. Faculty will be notified before recordings are removed, and recordings can be retained longer or stored as a video archive upon request.

How do I find additional help or support?

For all other questions, or to arrange training for yourself or your department, please contact the ITS Information Desk in Leyburn Library at (540) 458-4357 (HELP) or by sending an email to help@wlu.edu.

In addition, you may refer to a convenient list of video tutorials, quick start guides, and general documentation at https://academic.wlu.edu/yuja/.
