Publish YuJa Recordings to a Course Channel

YuJa recordings are stored in the recording owner's folder in YuJa instead of being tied to a specific course. There are multiple ways to link YuJa recordings within a Blackboard course, you add a Course Channel and then Publish the videos to the appropriate course channel.

View the step-by-step instructions below or watch this short video tutorial.

Creating a Course Channel Link in Blackboard

The first step is to create the Course Channel in each Blackboard course where you would like to have your videos appear.

  1. Access the Blackboard course where you would like to share videos by adding a YuJa course channel link.
  2. To create the YuJa link/menu item in your course, click the plus icon in the upper left corner of the Course Menu, and choose the Tool Link option.
  3. Within the Add Tool Link pop-up, type a name (like 'YuJa' or something similar) and choose the UND YuJa option for Type. You must check the box to make the link available to users in order for your students to be able to view and access the menu item. This can be done at a later time if you are not ready to make the content available at this time.

  4. The YuJa link will now be added to your Blackboard course menu. Click the link to create the Course Channel in YuJa.

Publishing Recordings to a Course Channel

Once you have created the Course Channel link, you can publish recordings and they will be visible to students through the course menu item.

  1. Click the YuJa tool link from the Blackboard menu that you created using the steps above. This will pass you through to YuJa.
  2. Click on Manage Media at the top of the screen, then click through the folder structure to locate the content you would like to "publish" to a course. Note: some recordings may appear in your Default Collection.

Then, click the ...More Actions drop-down in the top menu and select Bulk Publish
