A One-Stop-Shop Media Solution for Our LMS

Yuja is a reliable media creation and cloud-based host full of advanced features, including responsive design, accessibility, content delivery analytics and in-line video quizzing and keyword idexing. Their robust online help center with tutorials, live training and outstanding live customer support keeps our faculty moving and results in little-to-no technical support tickets. Overall an outstanding product!

Pros

Yuja's media creation and user interface is intuitive and extremely easy for faculty and staff to learn. Yuja also makes deploying multimedia in our LMS (Blackboard) a seamless experience. Yuja is both responsive and accessible, including auto-captioning of video content. In addition, Yuja offers sophisticated features for creating dynamic multimedia, such as in-line video quizzing that can send data to our LMS. Yuja also includes a robust analytics tool--which other competitors lack.

Cons

Integration into our learning environment was a breeze, and you can use Yuja as an SSO stand-alone service or integrated into your LMS (or both, as in our case.) Our only "con" was that we did acquire the product sooner.

Reasons for Choosing YuJa

Overall features and cost.

Excellent Media Management

I've had a great experience overall with YuJa. From the first day of implementation, YuJa's technical support has assisted with any issues that I've not been able to resolve for end users.

Pros

Ease of use has made the capabilities of creating and managing recorded content by end users a popular tool in face-to-face and online courses. Every semester I see new faculty using YuJa as part of their classes and a growing number of ways asynchronous video is used in classes.

Cons

There is little to complain about. Since the move to HTML5 from Flash, I have seen better stability and less issues from end users. Tools like the video quizzes could be more robust for review and grading. (Though it works well in a simple format)

Reasons for Choosing YuJa

1. YuJa was the only company to send the recorded conference demo with their own platform. 2. There was virtually no savings in changing to other platforms. 3. YuJa offered the best option for support.

Reasons for Switching to YuJa

Tegrity was too expensive. After they were purchased by a larger company, the product development and support dropped off.

Great, they were a little slow on certain releases for features, but they are continually coming out with upgrades and additions. They support is very fast and very helpful, especially when dealing with users who may not have a high level of technical proficency

Pros

Allows for higher quality video uploads, essentially allowing us to future proof as screen get better Good granular control

Cons

navigation and and search can be rather confusing Integration with LMS is good, but what all happens isn't entirely clear

Reasons for Choosing YuJa

Best granular control

Reasons for Switching to YuJa

Higher quality, better granular control

Its okay if you need a free option, but doesn't make it easy to keep online class flowing smoothly

If YuJa is your only option, it's worth giving it a shot, but it seems to lose connectivity the more users are present. I'd recommend a paid option with a more seamless experience rather than YuJa.

Pros

The fact that it offers video conferencing for free is a great option, and the layout of the interface is very user-friendly with the way chat and users are displayed around the virtual whiteboard.

Cons

Connectivity seems to be a constant issue for all users connected. Video and audio are often jumpy and tend to skip in and out throughout the online class experience, which makes it difficult to facilitate discussion.

YuJa at Johnson County Community College

YuJa was very helpful during the evaluation process and provided free access to their system for evaluation. The implementation was also very engaging and helpful for all our team. We continue to find the YuJa implementation team and support group very helpful months after the initial roll out. We have also been very impressed with the way the YuJa development team has collected our feature enhancements and move forward to make these available to the users.

Pros

During the selection process we were impressed with the easy to navigate interface and how a large number of features were included in the product. These features included the captioning, live streaming, inline quiz tool and LTI connections to both Zoom and Canvas. During the spring of 2020 YuJa became one of your most utilized tools for moving faculty online and continues to be a tool moving forward.

Cons

I think we should have taken advantage of the unlimited storage option during our purchasing stage. Also review the limits on auto captioning to make sure you have enough capacity. We did not forecast the 2020 pandemic but looking back would encourage purchasing as much storage and captioning as possible.

Reasons for Choosing YuJa

Price of the product with the total number of features included. YuJa was and continues to be very easy to navigate for our users including students and faculty. It has a very clean interface with our Canvas LMS.
