Create a YuJa Recording in Blackboard

You can record from within Blackboard or directly through YuJa. Please see the instructions below or view this video tutorial for creating a recording from within Blackboard.

  1. Go to a content area within a Blackboard course.
  2. Hover over Build Content and select any option that provides a text editor (such as Assignment, Course Content, or Discussion Topic).
  3. From within the text editor, select YuJa Media Chooser under Mashups; this will create a pop-up window.

  1. In the pop-up there will be an icon that appears as a downward facing arrow. This is a button that will allow you to download the YuJa recording software if you do not already have it installed.

  1. Next to the download button is a camera button that can be used to start a recording. There may be a security prompt regarding opening YuJa. Please opt to allow YuJa to open.

  1. 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. Give the capture a title if you would like (you can do this after recording as well).
    2. 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. If none are selected, or this button is not used, the recording will be placed in the user's default content collection within YuJa.
    3. Select your video output(s)
    4. Select your audio output(s)
    5. Select your screen capture area
    6. Click Start. 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 and looks like this.
  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.
