Handin by Aula

Handin is a Core tool for creating and collecting assessments from students.


If you’re trying to create or provide feedback in a way that integrates well with Aula, it’s hard to beat the platform’s native system for this: Handin.

With Handin, you can create, share, and edit assessments directly in Aula. Students can track all of their Handin assignments in one place and submit their work via the platform.

To see what it’s like to create or edit assignments using Handin, read this article from the Aula Help Centre.crete

This is what the process looks like for students.
