Which tool should I use,YuJa or Collaborate?

Synchronous and asynchronous learning is a complex environment. This document can be used to help you decide what tool to use in your instructional setting.

Summary

Collaborate Ultra is the primary web conferencing tool for instructional purposes that we suggest for your online classroom sessions. YuJa is the primary lecture capture tool for asynchronous video recording. We will be best equipped to support these platforms, but we will do our best to support the instructional tool you choose to use.
