New academic video platform is available

UNMC’s IT Academic Technologies is introducing the YuJa academic video platform, a cutting-edge addition to UNMC’s educational toolkit.

To ensure that faculty and staff can maximize the benefits of YuJa, IT Academic Technologies is offering comprehensive training sessions via Zoom. Sessions will be available from noon to 1 p.m. CT on Wednesday, Nov. 29, and Thursday, Nov. 30. To find out more and secure a spot, visit this link through Bridge.
