We’re creating a community-first
learning experience

Where the VLE feels like a digital filing cabinet, Aula feels like a great class with an engaged learning community.

What is a community-first learning experience?

In contrast to the content-first learning experiences typically found inside the VLE (think downloadable PDFs and slides), Aula’s community-first learning experiences are as much about meaningful connection as they are about academic challenge.

THE PLATFORM

Delivering a truly engaging learning experience

Aula makes it easy for educators to create community-first learning experiences by combining easy-to-use technology with evidence-informed learning design.

TECHNOLOGY

Built for connection

Our technology is designed to feel like the platforms people use every day. This is why educators will tell you Aula is easy to use and improves engagement. Unlike the VLE, which buries connection 12 clicks deep, Aula was built to foster meaningful connection by ensuring that students are never more than 1 click away from their learning community.

LEARNING DESIGN

Evidence-informed learning design

Educators want to deliver deeply engaging learning experiences. Too often, a lack of time and resources makes achieving that goal impossible. That’s why Aula provides one-to-one learning design support for educators to transform their module into a community-first learning experience in just 8 hours of their time.

83%

of academics say that using the Aula platform has positively changed their teaching and learning approaches

With expertise in digital learning for higher education, Aula’s designers collaborate with educators on a plan for synchronous and asynchronous learning for each module.

“Aula’s learning designers helped me understand the possibilities for teaching in a digital setting. And, having their expert guidance in transforming my module to ensure students get the most out of the experience saved me loads of time in questioning myself and re-engineering.”

Karina McGowan, Lecturer

“Aula is easier to use [than the VLE] and saves me time. For my students, Aula has enabled me to create a community-first learning experience with students helping other students”

Geraint Cunnick, Course Leader
