YuJa is a platform for hosting and sharing videos, audio recordings, and other digital media. It allows users to record and share content that can be used as part of course curricula, such as lectures and video assignments. Students can access the course materials on their own schedule, enabling them to review core concepts through lecture recordings and subject-specific multimedia content.
