Using YuJa to create and publish lecture videos

Last updated: December 23, 2020, 3:49 p.m.

Lecture capture is a way that you can record your voice and what's on your screen (and optionally video of you talking) in order to make it available in video format to students via Moodle. Lecture capture is a great way to create short bursts of content that can be watched at any time.


Before you begin: Equipment checklist

You will need the following equipment to run virtual classes online:

  • a desktop or laptop computer
  • a reliable Internet connection
  • a microphone 

How Lecture Capture works

The following video gives an overview of YuJa and how Lecture Capture works.


Teaching considerations when creating online lectures

Rather than record long lecture of 1-2 hours, it is recommended to record lectures in 20 minutes (or smaller) segments and, where possible, adding a short activity that prompts students to put the ideas to ‘action.’ These activities could include: reflective question(s) or discussion questions for students to discuss in groups in a discussion forum, or quiz questions.
