YuJa (Faculty) - Add a Video to Blackboard to Grade Percent Watched

This article walks you through how to link a YuJa video in Blackboard so the percentage watched is graded in the Grade Center.

YuJa will grade the percentage watched of a video. There are two options. If this video is worth 20 possible points:

  • Give full credit based on percentage watch. For example: if a student watched 90% of the video, they will get 20 points.
  • Give credit based on percentage watched. For example: if a student watches only 50%  of the video, they will get only 10 points.
  1. Navigate to the video. Hover your mouse over the thumbnail and click the cog. Click More in the menu.

        Note: The grades may not transfer to the Grade Center, especially the Analytics scores. Please allow extra time for those to transfer to the Grade Center.
