Install and record from YuJa

What is it?

This guide shows instructors on how to add YuJa tool link to a My Dundee module. The most common reason for doing this is to add relevant recordings (such as lecture recordings, flipped classroom or worked examples) to a tool link content area.

What does it do?

This is the platform to record asynchronous content. This guide will cover how to link YuJa to your module, how to record content, and how to post the video directly to your module channel.

What should I know?

Your module templates will have a YuJa channel link available, to activate this link between YuJa and your module, click on the link to open it.

Once you have launched YuJa, you are ready to begin recording.

Step 1: Navigate to Create Recording at the top of the screen.

Step 2: If this is your first time using YuJa, click Download and Install and follow the instructions.

Once YuJa has been installed on your computer, go back to this screen and click Start.

Click start on the create recording interface

Step 3: In the YuJa recorder, choose your options. Click on the down arrow in the grey section to make any adjustments to your selection.
