The Community in your Aula space operates as the central hub where you can engage with both students and educators of your module in discussions and conversations to create a truly engaging and connected learning experience.
In practice, educators often use the community to post updates related to teaching materials and assignments, as well as encourage discussions and collaboration. Students also use the community feed to post questions for the educators or the wider class, ask other students for feedback on their work, or share useful resources.
