The YuJa Media Chooser

It is easy to add a YuJa recording to Moodle.

Basically, we’ve added a new YuJa button to the Moodle text editor, allowing course authors to add YuJa recordings to any Moodle activity. Similarly, students in the Moodle course can now add YuJa recordings any time they see the Moodle text editor–for example, discussion threads or assignment responses. Recordings may be added wherever you can normally enter text. To learn how to add recording from YuJa or your computer to Moodle, follow the steps below.
