Our story

We started Aula as students at the University of Oxford. Inspired by the way in which educators and students use communication tools such as WhatsApp and Slack, Aula replaces emails and clunky learning management systems with a single platform designed to encourage interaction and engagement.

We developed the platform by conducting more than 230 pilot classes across 30 institutions that ranged from small workshops at MIT to large physics classes at Imperial College London. We launched the institutional version of Aula in September 2017 and are currently working with institutions such as Ravensbourne University London, the University of Coventry, and Birmingham City University.

Our name

Aula [ˈɔ:la] means “the place people come together”.

That’s exactly what Aula is about: bringing students, staff, and educators together in a digital environment that encourages interaction and collaboration.
