What is YuJa?

YuJa is a media management system with many facets: it’s a place to store and share videos, a screen-recording program, a lightweight video editor, an auto-captioning service, and an in-video quizzing tool. Primarily, instructors use it to collect and organize their video resources, like Lecture Capture or recorded Zoom meetings.

It lets you make your own copies of YouTube videos. It encourages students to take notes as they watch. YuJa gives students captions, a searchable index, and playback speed options.
