CILT offers a range of practical support and learning design services. Our practical support services can help you implement and troubleshoot issues with specific learning Vula tools. Our learning design services help you think about the design of your course, talk through teaching challenges, and advise about the use of  Amathuba Vula for effective learning. There are a number of options depending on whether you prefer to consult relevant documentation, talk to a helpful colleague or join a group of colleagues grappling with similar issues.
