  • Record quick “explainer” screencasts in your office or at home.
  • Students can record themselves for presentations, critique, or self-assessment.
  • Use a smartphone or tablet to make recordings in the field.
YuJa is a learning-oriented video player

  • Shows multiple synchronized streams at once.
    (e.g. slides or other screen content, document camera, video)
  • Navigate visually or search within recordings to go straight to the relevant passages.
