Migrating courses from Vula to Amathuba for 2023

25 August 2022

Dear colleagues and students

We are excited to share that teaching on the University of Cape Town’s (UCT) new digital learning platform, Amathuba, started at the beginning of this semester as part of the pilot phase of the course migration from Vula to Amathuba. We aim to use feedback from lecturers and students to refine the design, layout, and other aspects of the learning platform during this phase of the project.

Now that the pilot courses are being taught on Amathuba, the Centre for Innovation in Learning and Teaching (CILT) is gearing up to support all first-year courses (and other courses as agreed with faculties) convenors, teaching, and administrative staff to migrate their Vula course sites to Amathuba to be ready for teaching from Semester 1 in 2023.

If you are part of a first-year course team, or another that will be migrated this semester, the CILT migration workstream team will contact you about the various support and training options available to you.

All UCT staff and students now have access to Amathuba, and if you would like a sneak preview or trial run, you can login to Amathuba.

For more information, watch the video about Amathuba functionality or visit our Amathuba Resources for Staff or Amathuba Resources for Students pages.

Visit the Learning Platforms Update Project for more information about UCT’s transition from Vula to Amathuba and other aspects regarding the transformation of our digital ecosystem in achieving our Vision 2030 objectives.

Please email the team at CILT-Helpdesk@uct.ac.za if you have any concerns or visit our FAQ page.
