This article provides additional details regarding the usage of YuJa in classrooms and how class cancellations affect scheduled YuJa streams. A majority of this information can be found on signs posted in the classrooms that can support scheduled YuJa broadcasts.
YuJa Classroom Privacy
Classroom Technology Disclaimer
Please note that at the instructor’s discretion, lectures and class sessions held in certain lecture halls may be livestreamed and/or recorded and made available to students registered for the class. The use of live streaming and lecture capture is intended to supplement the classroom experience solely for the benefit of students registered in the class. UW-Parkside prohibits faculty, staff and students from copying, distributing, or using lecture capture recordings for any other purpose; violation of this prohibition may be grounds for UW-Parkside to initiate disciplinary proceedings.
A class being hosted in a webcam-equipped classroom does not imply that the class is being broadcast over YuJa. However, the instructor will have the option to request scheduled YuJa broadcasts for individual class sessions or all class sessions throughout that semester. Any classes that are recorded/livestreamed will not be available for public viewing. Any class livestreams or recordings are explicitly meant for use by the instructor and the students enrolled in that class.
Sharing Sensitive Information in YuJa Classrooms
YuJa recordings will only be captured during class periods as requested by the instructor. These webcam systems do not record anything in-between these class periods, nor do they record any classes that haven't been requested by the instructor. However, keep in mind that scheduled YuJa broadcasts usually start two minutes before the scheduled class period and can end two minutes after class. Additionally, scheduled YuJa broadcasts may still be active in an empty classroom if there was originally a class recording planned for that room during that time frame (as detailed below). Instructors can delete YuJa recordings and trim sections out if any sensitive conversations were picked up on a broadcast, but this is still something to be conscious of in these classrooms.
Class Cancellation Procedures
Weather Emergencies or Campus-Wide Class Cancellation
If all university classes are canceled for a period of time, any scheduled YuJa broadcasts during this period will still occur like normal
, even if there will be nobody in the classroom in most cases. The exception to this rule would be if the cancellation is due to power outages since the equipment won't be able to run until power is restored.
If you wish to record a supplementary video during this period, you can still use the classroom to record during the regularly scheduled class session if weather permits you to come to campus. Alternatively, you can record the video remotely by using a different recording tool such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, or Kaltura. If you'd rather use a non-YuJa tool to record your materials from inside a classroom, instructions on how to enable a classroom's webcam for other applications can be found at the following Knowledgebase page: Enabling Classroom Webcams for Non-YuJa Applications
Individual Class Cancellations
If an individual class session is canceled or moved to a different location, any previously scheduled YuJa broadcast during that time will still be carried out like usual in the original classroom. Instructors have the ability to delete these recordings after the scheduled class period ends.
