Who are ADU?

Established in 2003, Abu Dhabi University (ADU) is one of the newer universities in the Middle East, but it has quickly established a celebrated prestige and a driving ambition. Their goal to become the leading educational institution in the Arab region is partly based on one principle: pairing students with interactive technology to improve the quality of education.

I had used interactive tools like Kahoot, Quizizz and common whiteboards on Teams. My first impression of AhaSlides was that it had a really smooth integration of lecture components with interactive ones.
