Attending a Video Classroom

YuJa’s Video Classroom lets you engage with your instructor and classmates in real-time, in small or large groups.

  • A Small Group Meeting has fewer than six participants.
  • A Large Group Meeting has more than six participants, and can have up to 200.

Attending the Video Classroom

You can access the Video Classroom to attend a class in two different ways.

  • Click on the link sent by email. This will take you directly to the Video Classroom.
  • Log into YuJa and click on the blinking notification icon at the upper right.
  • Allow YuJa access to your camera and microphone if you wish to be seen and speak.


Using the Video Classroom Tools

If you’re attending a Small Group meeting of less than six people, you’ll have access to all of the Video Classroom tools.

  • Use the Whiteboard to draw diagrams or make notes.
  • Share a file with others in the meeting through the Document Share feature.
  • Click to link and play a YouTube video with Video Sharing.
  • Access Desktop Sharing to share the contents of your computer screen.


Raising your Hand and Asking a Question

In a Large Group meeting, you won’t have access to the Video Classroom tools, but you can, with the instructor’s permission, access your own microphone to speak.

  • Select Click to Raise your Hand.
  • Speak into your microphone when allowed permission by the instructor.
  • Lower your hand by clicking on Click to Lower your Hand.


Using the Text-based Chat

If you don’t have a microphone or webcam available, you can still participate in the Video Classroom using the text-based chat feature.

  • Click on the Chat icon on the left-hand side of the screen.
  • Type your message in the chat window and hit Enter to post.
