SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The largest and most comprehensive art, design and media university in Canada, Ontario College of Art and Design University (OCAD U), recently deployed the YuJa Enterprise Video Platform.

The Video Platform will enable instructors to create engaging video and media with lecture capture tools, as well as use in-video quizzing, playback quizzing, video conferencing, and provide a cloud-based storage solution for digital content. YuJa Video Platform also will increase accessibility through high-quality, AI-based automated speech recognition (ASR) and auto-captioning.

“OCAD U takes pride in providing engaging, creative, studio-based, aesthetic and technical learning. YuJa provides the tools to help the institution bridge art and technology both for instructors and students,” said Nathan Arora, Chief Business Officer at YuJa, Inc.

YuJa replaces the institution’s former vendor and product, Techsmith Knowmia, which phased out enterprise education video hosting from its business model. YuJa has experience working with institutions to migrate video and media content to a Cloud-based Video CMS, as well as provide ongoing training for faculty and staff.
