Schools given alternative scalable LMS amid ongoing pandemic challenges
Bergen, Feb 10, 2021 – Schools in Berlin can from today begin using the itslearning platform. The Norwegian-built learning management system has been made available to students and teachers alongside the city state’s existing platform Lernraum Berlin (Berlin Learning Space). The agreement was signed by the Berlin Senate Department for Education, Youth and Family Affairs late Monday. With the support of the itslearning platform the city state can now push forward with its plan for the sustainable development of schools, teaching and remote learning during the coronavirus pandemic.
‘Berlin is the headquarters of itslearning in Germany. So, we’re undoubtedly very proud to welcome our hometown city to the itslearning family. Our learning platform will seamlessly fit the needs of teachers and students here because the curriculum and learning objectives are already available in our LMS. itslearning has been used in Berlin for many years now by individual schools such as John Lennon Gymnasium and Victor Klemperer College. Furthermore, as the platform is highly customizable it can be designed for the individual needs of each and every school,’ says Martin Lorenz, Managing Director of itslearning GmbH.
A purpose-built learning platform to empower teachers and students
With itslearning, schools have access to a learning management system that can be customized to fit their pedagogical processes – from implementation and planning, to the evaluation of student progress. Students and teachers will be able to seamlessly access educational materials anywhere and anytime with the mobile-friendly platform.
itslearning also supports personalized and self-directed learning, blended/remote teaching, as well as professional development training programs.
Being based in Europe, with a strong focus on data security, GDPR, and scalability – itslearning is now the preferred paid European LMS. The platform has been recently adopted by many German federal states and cities including Bremen, Baden Württemberg, Schleswig-Holstein, and Düsseldorf.
Accelerated mission to provide remote learning
The German capital acted fast at the start of the year and announced that it would provide all schools with itslearning as the alternative digital learning environment after experiencing serious problems with its existing solution Lernraum Berlin.
The LMS will be initially made available to 50,000 users in the first phase, and subsequently expanded to a total of 400,000 students and teachers. This deal will include user licenses, the Big Blue Button video conferencing tool, project management, training and integrations.
