Aula integrates with a number of third-party tools and platforms. This means that you can add the tools in, and you and other students won't have to leave the platform to engage with them.

Three important notes:

  • Your institution may not have licences to all of the tools which Aula integrates with. You will need to check with your institution to find out more information.
  • If you or your institution has licences to tools which Aula doesn't integrate with, that's fine! You can just copy and paste the link into Aula - you will just be taken out of the platform.
  • If you need support, we recommend you ask your internal institution support teams or access the tool's support pages. Get in touch with the Aula team if you're having trouble adding the link, for example, or anything which is specific to the Aula platform.

Also, if you have a tool you'd love to see on this list, get in touch with us!
