Embedding Yuja videos in Brightspace

YuJa - Embed OR Use Media Chooser to Add a Video in Brightspace

This article provides instruction on embedding a YuJa video in Brightspace using an embed code. YuJa provides the full embed code as well as the URL for each video. An embedded video shows the video in a play window rather than just the link. It is a good practice to include the URL along with the Embed code to increase accessibility for mobile devices. There are two ways to Embed OR Add a Video in Brightspace using Yuja.
