Creating a Recording in YuJa

You can create a YuJa recording in Blackboard or directly through YuJa.  The following steps are to create a recording in YuJa. If you haven't installed YuJa, you can learn how to do that at "Download & Install the YuJa Software Station."

  • Log in to YuJa - go to or click on the YuJa menu item in your Blackboard course.
  • Select Create Recording (at the top of the YuJa home page) - If you have not already downloaded the YuJa Software Station on your computer, you will need to do this prior to your first recording.
  • Click the Start button. The YuJa recording software will now open. Launch the Application. A preview screen will pop up (see below). Follow the steps below to set up your capture:
  1. Title (optional) - give the capture a title if you would like (you can do this after recording as well).
  2. Course/Location (optional) - Select the course that you are wanting to post the capture in. This button allows users to select which media channel (YuJa content area, often individual Blackboard sites) to publish the recording to.
    NOTE: If no courses or locations are selected, or this button is not used, the recording will be placed in the user's default content collection folder within YuJa.
  3. Video input(s) - choose webcam or document camera feeds to be included in the recording.
  4. Audio input(s) - select the microphone or internal audio feeds that will be incorporated in the recording.
  5. Screen capture area - pick which monitors or areas of your screen you want to include in the recording.
  6. Click Start - then there will be a three second countdown before your recording will begin.

  1. As you are recording, you will see your controls in the bottom right corner of your screen. It will give you the option to open the YuJa Software Station in full preview mode, stop or pause your recording.
  2. Record your presentation.
  3. When you are done recording, you will click the stop button. The following screen will appear where you can either Post Now (if you have chosen the option to save to a specific media channel), Save or Delete you capture.

  1. After you save the recording, YuJa will process the recording. When the processing has completed, you will receive an email notifying you of the completion. You will receive a separate email notification when the auto-captioning has completed. This process may take several minutes depending on the size of the recording.
  2. After the video has processed, it will be available in the previously selected media channel for deployment.
