YuJa Video launches in UM Learn
Contest open to UM instructors who use YuJa in September
As of Sept. 1, 2021, YuJa Video is available to all faculty, staff and students at the University of Manitoba through UM Learn. YuJa Video is a video platform that will help instructors and students at UM:
- create more accessible videos through its captioning and transcription capabilities
- protect instructors’ intellectual property
- allow users at UM to create and share videos without advertising interruptions
For Mark Torchia, Vice-Provost (Teaching and Learning) and executive director of The Centre for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning, YuJa’s most exciting capability is that “It will automatically caption and provide a transcript of videos, making all of the videos we create at UM more accessible.”
Instructors are encouraged to create a welcome video in UM Learn for their courses. Any instructors who create a welcome video by Sept. 30 will be entered into a contest to win great prizes. For more information about YuJa, log into UM Learn or check out the information on The Centre for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning’s website.
