Embedding videos in My Dundee

1. Create a YuJa video channel in your module

A YuJa channel is an area within the YuJa platform that is specifically allocated to an organisational group – when a channel is created within a module, that channel is directly located within that module. Anyone enrolled within that module will have access to the videos published to the channel. 

To create a YuJa channel, go into your module, find where you want to put the channel, click on the plus sign and select Content & Tools

From the list of providers, go to YuJa: Channel and click the small plus sign in the corner. 

Click on edit in the three dots at the side to change the link name, add a description or allow class conversations. 

Clicking into your channel takes you to all of your videos uploaded into your specific YuJa channel. You can view all of your media from the same place by clicking My Media Collection (all videos, not just ones for your channel, are stored here). 

2. Embed a specific video in your module

To embed a YuJa video directly into your module rather than a channel, go into your module, find where you want to put the video, click on the plus sign and select Content & Tools

From the list of providers, select YuJa: Embed Media. 

This will take you to a list of all the videos you have uploaded in your My Media. You can search for the video title and then select the video you want to embed. 

You will then be returned to your module page, where you will see your embedded video. 

Click on edit in the three dots at the side to change the name, visibility, add a description, allow class conversations or align the video with goals. 

3. Embed a video within a document

You can embed videos into documents, discussions and journals created within My Dundee. To do so, hover between your items, select the green plus sign and click Create. Select whether you want to create a document, journal or discussion. 

If you are creating a document, click on Add Content. The following steps are the same for documents, discussions and journals. 

When you are ready to embed your video, click on the plus icon and select Insert/Edit LTI item. From the list of providers, select YuJa: Embed Media.  This will take you to a list of all the videos you have uploaded in your My Media. Select the video you want to embed. This will take you to a pop-up, where you can change the display name of your video. Click Insert

You will then be returned to your document, journal or discussion, where you will see your embedded video. Finish creating your content and click Save
