Tegrity and Collaborate to be Replaced by YuJa Summer 2017

After reviewing lecture capture tools, the Faculty Development Center and faculty representatives from each college have selected YuJa Active Learning Platform to replace Tegrity.  Due to its ease of use, features available, and pricing package, YuJa will be used to replace not only Tegrity, but also the web conferencing service provided by Blackboard Collaborate. The transition will occur in May and June. Instructors wishing to use lecture capture or web conferencing during the summer are strongly encouraged to use YuJa due to the cut-off date for Tegrity and Collaborate.

Tegrity and Collaborate will not be available after June 15, 2017. Information Systems (IS) will download recordings that remain in the Tegrity system that were originally recorded between Fall 2016 semester and May 14, 2017. Any videos recorded after May 14th will not be included as part of the migration process. IS will be contacting instructors who have recordings currently on the Tegrity system. Instructors will receive an itemized list identifying the recordings available from the Tegrity system. If you have a downloaded recording not listed, IS will provide instructions for submitting the file in the communication directed to individual Tegrity users. 

Instructions for downloading and locating Tegrity recordings are provided on the Knowledge Base at https://murraystate.teamdynamix.com/TDClient/KB/ArticleDet?ID=30065.  

YuJa training and support will be ongoing. The following are the first two scheduled training sessions which will be held in the TSCS classroom. These training sessions will be recorded: 

  • Using YuJa Software Capture - Tuesday, May 16 (1:00 - 2:00 pm)  
    Repeat Session: Monday, May 22 (11:00 am - 12:00 pm)
  • Using YuJa Video Classroom - Monday, May 22 (1:00 - 2:00 pm) 
    Repeat Session: Tuesday, May 23 (3:00 pm - 4:00 pm)

Questions about YuJa training should be directed to Firm Faith Watson, Director of the Faculty Development Center, at fwatson2@murraystate.edu.  

We apologize for any inconvenience in this transition.  Information Systems will be offering a $100 stipend (processed after the beginning of the Fall semester) to every faculty member:  

  • who is on a nine or ten-month contract,
  • who used either Blackboard Collaborate or Tegrity during the July 1, 2016 through June 1, 2017 period for an instructional purpose (class),
  • AND who completes a YuJa Training session prior to the start of Fall 2017 semester.

Look for information about training sessions in the Teaching Tuesday Newsletters from the Faculty Development Center, and from the Racer Nation Information Newsletter.
