YuJa | About YuJa​

The YuJa Enterprise Video Platform (YuJa) is an all-in-one video experience that allows the secure creation, management, discovery, collaboration, and live streaming of video content across any device at any time. YuJa also integrates into WUR's existing enterprise systems including Brightspace, SSO, and intranet. YuJa manages and distributes all knowledge clips, user-generated content, and Weblectures for the WUR, both within and outside Brightspace.

Within YuJa you can search for videos, view them, change some of the characteristics while watching them. But also, you can create playlists, store videos, create links to them and if you create videos yourself, you can upload them and share them with the whole world. You can share educational videos (such as recorded lectures, knowledge clips, practical clips, and instruction videos) through Brightspace, within YuJa, and outside YuJa.

Wageningen University & Research started using YuJa as the new Enterprise Video Platform on the 14th of February 2022. Before that we used Presentations to Go (P2G), and we used websites as wurtv2, weblectures, and multimedia. Everything that was present on P2G is migrated to YuJa.

In this article you will learn:

For more information read the article: Classlist | Roles and permissions in Brightspace.


Course coordinators are not owners of Weblectures. Therefore, certain features from the Weblectures have to be done by Educational Media such as:

1. Edit Weblectures from a course

2. Change the title of a Weblecture

3. Publish back a Weblecture that was unpublished 

If you have a request regarding Weblectures contact [email protected].

Manage Media includes a suite of tools to organize, store and manage media. This includes search and maintain media content, share media, upload and download media, caption content, and use the Video Editor. All roles in YuJa include the following rights:

  1. Maintain the video(s) you own through the YuJa Media Library. For further instructions read the article: YuJa | About YuJa Media Library.
  2. Share the videos that you own with both internal and external users. For further instructions check YuJa | How to share videos in YuJa.

How do I enable Third-Party Cookies?

YuJa requires third-party cookies to prevent any potential login or media player issues while accessing your YuJa account. If third-party cookies are not enabled, users may be unable to log in through their LMS. In the article Enabling Third-Party Cookies, YuJa has included steps to perform in Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and Safari to enable third-party cookies.

How do I access my watch history? 

Watch History is a log of videos that users have watched previously. Users can use this feature to refer back to videos that have been watched and re-watch the videos as needed. Read the Accessing Watch History article to learn how to access your watch history. 

Can I download videos that are stored on YuJa?

You are able to download the videos that you own in YuJa. You are the owner of a video when you uploaded it. Read in the Downloading Media article on the YuJa support page how to download videos that you own in YuJa.

By default it is not possible to download videos that you do not own through YuJa. The basic principle is that the videos are intended to be private, only for students registered for the courses and the intellectual property belongs to the WUR. The videos will remain available on the server, and accessible for you via the YuJa video platform, via which you can link them to any course you may want to (re)use them in. If you have a special request you can contact [email protected].  

Who can watch promotions, graduation ceremonies, inaugurations, or farewell speeches?

Next to course related recordings (Weblectures), Education Media provides recordings of all the promotions, graduation ceremonies, inaugurations, and farewell speeches. All of these events are livestreamed publicly. More information can be found in the article About recording and livestreaming a promotion, graduation ceremony, inauguration, or farewell speech.

Now you know the basics about YuJa!
