Aula is a communication platform built for education that replaces emails and learning management systems (e.g. Moodle, Canvas, Blackboard, D2L) with digital infrastructure designed to encourage interaction and engagement. Aula was founded at the University of Oxford by Anders Krohn, Oliver Nicolini and Adrian Franklin who were driven to build Aula based on their experiences as students at universities across the globe. The institutional version of Aula was launched in September 2017 and early adopter universities include Ravensbourne, the University of Nottingham, the Royal College of Art and the University of Derby. Aula brings together students, staff, and educators — think of it as an institution’s digital campus.
