YuJa for Student Media Assignments

YuJa is an easy-to-use video creation and sharing platform with robust accessibility support for video content. It also has features for student engagement with quizzing, analytics, and more. You can also direct students to use the platform to either create recordings or upload recordings to share with the class via a specified course channel and sub-channel for each assignment. Great for: 

  • Student presentations  
  • Audio and video-only presentations 
  • Demonstration of a skill (bedside manner, playing an instrument, painting/drawing technique, pitching a business)
