Southern Illinois University Edwardsville Deploys YuJa Enterprise Video Platform Across Three Campuses
SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–YuJa, Inc., a leader in enterprise video solutions, announces an agreement with Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) to provide a campuswide video platform and Zoom Connector to its more than 13,000 students at three campuses.
Formerly a Techsmith Knowmia customer, the institution was seeking a new video partner after Techsmith announced the sunset of its enterprise education video hosting platform. The Video Platform will SIUE to enhance teaching and learning with capabilities like lecture capture, in-video quizzing, video conferencing, closed captioning and other accessibility features, and through embedding videos directly into the learning management system (LMS).
In addition to the robust features available within the Video Platform, the Zoom Connector enables automated upload of videos recorded through Zoom. The recordings can be disseminated securely and viewed across any device, as well as automatically captioned and indexed for improved search-inside-video capabilities. The Zoom Connector also offers options for deleting recordings after the import is complete to help institutions cut down on storage usage and costs for the Zoom Cloud.
“SIUE uses Blackboard LMS, and there were some additional technical needs around importing course shells and links. YuJa was able to rise to the challenge and work through these needs to meet the needs of the institution and instructors,” said Nathan Arora, Chief Business Officer at YuJa, Inc. “We’re excited for SIUE’s instructors to see the easy-to-use features that make learning more engaging and inclusive.”
