YuJa (All Users) - Bulk Delete Media Files

This article gives instructions on how to bulk delete media files in YuJa.

Bulk delete will be useful when deleting the extra "practice" Zoom recordings as well as copies of videos you no longer need. If the media to be deleted is found in many folders, create a new folder and move the media to that folder. 

Create a Folder in YuJa


Folders are recommended to organize your Media Library. Create a folder for each class to organize your class videos. Create separate folders for other content such as Committee Meeting Audio, Professional Development videos, etc.

Create a Folder

  1. Log into YuJa at https://siue.yuja.com with your SIUE credentials. 

  2. From the toolbar at the top of the page, click on the New Folder button.

     Name the Folder then save
