How we connected our first university

In April 2013 we launched the Vula App on Android and in September 2013 we launched the app for iOS. We continued to work on the app, constantly adding new features in order to help students out. In January 2014 we opened the app up to advertisers, allowing advertisers to host their ads on our app and get analytical data on how their adverts were performing.


The app allows user to gain instant access to all their course material in a systematic manner and it allows them to follow up on regular announcements sent out by lecturers. Students are able to interact with their fellow peers with the chatroom facility and download resources to their Dropbox account, further optimising their learning experience.
The app is currently used by over 21 000 students at UCT, which is positively contributing to the progressive lifestyle of the 21st century student.

Vula got a lot of love

"Really great interface"

The app is super basic and really easy use! It surpasses vula online, way easier on the eyes too.
