  • Create personal portfolios, blogs, and other websites
  • Create project websites for assessment for staff projects within the university

Choosing the right tool

Where it makes sense, try a Preferred tool first; these tools integrate well with Aula and will likely be a better experience for you and your students. However, if that doesn’t meet your needs, look for a Supported tool as these are also recommended and available for use.
