YuJa, Inc., a leader in the ed-tech marketplace, announces an agreement with the Louisiana Community and Technical College System (LCTCS) to license YuJa Panorama for Digital Accessibility, which enables institutions to identify and correct accessibility issues and make media accessible to all. The accessibility tool will be deployed at the system's 12 colleges that serve more than 150,000 students throughout the state.

"YuJa Panorama is just one of the innovative products in YuJa's portfolio that helps institutions deliver high-quality, accessible video and media content within their LMS and across institutional websites."

YuJa Panorama integrates with the system's centralized Learning Management System, Canvas. With LTI 1.3, YuJa aligns data and reporting capabilities at both an organization and sub-organization level.
