Academic Video - YuJa - UNL Learning Management

Video Content

The University of Nebraska System has decided to move forward with full implementation of YuJa as our video content management solution replacement of VidGrid. VidGrid was retired on June 30, 2023. Users will not lose existing VidGrid videos as a result of this change in systems. 

YuJa is an all-in-one video experience to securely create, manage, discover, and collaborate video content across any device.


Faculty are encouraged to complete the Learn Yuja module on how to utilize YuJa in their courses. Topics include: recording, embedding, setting permissions, using analytics, and captioning. 

Members of the Academic Technology team are available to provide YuJa training to groups of faculty. If your department or college would like to schedule a training session, please contact Kate McCown (
