Driving Student Engagement by Replacing the LMS - An Aula Case Study
This Knowledge Factory looks, firstly, at the constraints that current student and educator-facing digital tools - primarily the LMS and emails - impose on student engagement and community. Secondly, it looks at case studies of universities using Aula to replace the Learning Management System to improve engagement. On the way, we'll discuss lessons learned from analysis of 100s of university strategies, from the field of pedagogy, from research on LMSs across the years, and from the usage of modern communication platforms such as Slack, WeChat, and Whatsapp. Expect to leave the session with an understanding of just how much room for innovation has opened up with recent technologies when it comes to core digital infrastructure at universities and the exciting possibilities for strengthening active learning communities in higher education.
