What is it?

If you already have a video file (MP4), you can upload it directly to YuJa.

Once your video is in YuJa, you can publish it your module channel or embed it in your module (for instructors) or embed it in your assignment (for students). You can also get a link and share the video that way. For more information, see our guide on sharing your video.
