TESTIMONIALS
"Students can really interact with me and each other. The fact that they are engaging, they're working, and they're wanting to go and showcase their work to their peers—that's a strong positive for me. It tells me they're happy about Aula."
Rasha Aly

Lecturer

"I've really appreciated the structure Aula set up for me, because it allowed me to think very differently about my material and how to present it. Aula has made me think more creatively about how to deliver modules online."
Christine Magill

Course Director and Senior Lecturer

"Aula’s learning design has really informed my practice. I am giving students clearer information and guidance, and they have commented favourably on my expectations about autonomous learning. I think I taught these two modules on Aula better than I taught them face to face."
Andrew Read

Head of Academic Programmes for Education

"Aula’s learning designers are skilled at helping you consider the finer details of your class, and transforming them for online and hybrid learning."
Karina McGowan

Lecturer

"With Moodle, all the professors just upload the documents required for the course. But with Aula, it's more like an interactive experience."
Udayan Vassur

Student

"I feel like my tutors are more accessible now, which gives me peace of mind. And anyone can post and respond to anybody else—it’s like commenting on Facebook. It brings the learning experience back to a normal community of people interacting."
Lovely Javier

Student

"I think of Moodle more as a digital filing cabinet where we post things. With Aula, it’s nice to see students interacting with and encouraging each other naturally. This is the first time I’ve seen that kind of organic engagement."
Ann Healey

Course Director

"Aula fits more so with what I thought my university experience would be like, and definitely enhances it. Aula is like the apps I'm used to: it's more direct and easy to get a hold of people."
Ayanna Sankara

Student

"The Aula app is really easy to use and I like that I can access my modules from anywhere. For example, the other day I had 15 minutes free and, rather than having to fire up my laptop, I was able to easily use the mobile app to get some work done."
Vanessa Hiller

TESTIMONIALS
"Aula does help us feel like part of a community because we have been able to interact with students from different disciplines - like, me being an automotive engineer interacting with a graphic designer can help us combine concepts and create something completely new."
Udayan Vassur

Student

"I’m really grateful that we have Aula. It just makes everything so much easier. If I couldn’t use it anymore, that would just stress me out: where would I even go to figure things out? Aula just puts everything in the right place for me."
Macy French

Student

"I feel like Popeye does after he has a can of spinach. Everything is just so much easier."
Josh Fortune

Associate Senior Lecturer

"I was surprised to find out Aula has a really user-friendly interface. You don't feel overwhelmed by all the information."
Vlad Leustean

Student

"For me, Aula is really user-friendly. It seems really familiar to me as a platform, and much more intuitive than Moodle. Even some mature students who have really struggled with Moodle in the past are having a positive experience with Aula."
Andrew Read

Head of Academic Programmes for Education

"Aula’s biggest benefit so far is its Community feed, which creates more interaction and discussions. The way my modules are set up gives opportunities every week for a student to post on the Community and get some feedback from me or their peers."
Jason Bennett

Asst. Professor

"Community and a sense of belonging are the keys to student satisfaction. Aula is clearly more interactive than your average VLE: it lets students use technology to present their ideas in different formats and talk to one another."
Ann Healey

Course Director

"Aula definitely made my life easier: the learning designer prepared the entire course structure for me and clearly indicated where I should break down a lesson, or upload a video or document. That definitely saved a lot of time and a lot of work, especially on a module I’d teach multiple times every year."
Rasha Aly

Lecturer

"The Community feed has been very useful: it means I can update the students quite quickly and easily. And, when my students had lots of questions at the start of the course, some just posted to the Community and got answers from their peers. students."
Christine Magill

Course Director and Senior Lecturer
