Media-management platform transition continues
Faculty should activate fall-semester courses in Blackboard Learn.
July 24, 2018
Faculty members are asked to activate their fall-semester courses in Blackboard Learn as soon as possible because of the transition to YuJa, MSU Denver’s new media-management platform. Course-activation instructions are available on the Selecting Your Course for Migration (Activation) webpage.
The transition also requires that all media content stored in Kaltura be migrated to YuJa and that all links pointing to that content be updated. More background information about the transition is available in a recent Early Bird article and the YuJa Initiative webpage.
The links contained in the fall 2018 courses are being updated as faculty activate their courses in Blackboard Learn. Faculty members will be informed when the links within their courses have been updated.
Faculty members will need to update any media-content links located within the “Tests, Surveys and Pools” tool as well as links within documents (PDF, Word, etc.). If you would like one-on-one assistance with updating the links or using YuJa, please feel free to stop by the Faculty Commons in West Classroom 243 during open hours.
Additionally, several resources that provide basic instructions for using YuJa are available online, including:
- Accessing YuJa
- Adding media distributed via YuJa to Blackboard Learn
- Recording your webcam and/or screen with YuJa:
YuJa-hosted online training sessions are also available. Several are already scheduled through September, and additional sessions will be added as needed.
We would be happy to provide assistance, so if you have any questions please contact the ITS Helpdesk at 303-352-7548 or support.msudenver.edu.
