What is YuJa?

YuJa is video recording and screen capture software that is integrated into Desire2Learn (D2L) for ease of use. It is available to students, instructors, and staff to create, edit, and store videos and other created digital media, such as audio recordings.

Your YuJa Dashboard

Navigate to the course you’ll be using YuJa in. Click on More Tools > YuJa in the navigation bar at the top of the screen to begin exploring your Media Library. You do not need to install any software if you are only exploring the dashboard or uploading and editing videos in D2L.
