itslearning introduces a quick start digital package to assist schools transition to remote learning
With the coronavirus crisis showing little sign of slowing down, schools and districts across the world have been seeking partners to quickly deploy innovative and practical solutions for remote learning. The city of Düsseldorf, in Germany, is setting a new record in digitizing schools and effectively activating a learning management system for students, teachers and parents. By getting emergency approval to fast track the process and get in place a reliable and trusted partner, they were able to agree on implementing a learning platform for 80,000 users in less than 24 hours.
The city was already in the final stages of the tender process with itslearning, but as the health crisis escalated asked the company if it could activate the learning management system ahead of time. The answer from the itslearning team in Germany was an immediate and resounding “yes”.
“Since the coronavirus pandemic, we had been looking at ways in how we can reach out to schools to mobilize and implement remote learning in a fast, secure and systematic way. We have put together a quick start digital package to fast track the implementation timeframe and get schools up and running with the itslearning platform within 24 hours,” says Steve Tucker, CEO at itslearning.
Remote Learning Starter Package
“This Remote Learning Starter Package provides the necessary licenses, support and online training. As Europe’s biggest provider of learning management systems, we are interested in sustainable and successful deployments – not short-term solutions. We see ourselves as education partners so we work hand-in-hand with schools and districts to implement solutions that work best for them. Our learning platform is about elevating education by connecting people, easing communications and strengthening relationships, which is now more important than ever.”
itslearning has recorded similar successes with its quick start remote learning package in the Netherlands and is in discussions to implement the package with schools and districts in the US, Asia and Europe.
Because itslearning is cloud based and fully mobile, users can access it anywhere, anytime and on any device – smartphone, tablet or PC.
Teachers transitioning to full remote learning also receive extensive online training that includes information on organization and collaboration, interactive teaching and personalized instruction. itslearning also provides dedicated online training for administrators such that schools can structure the way teaching is conducted on the platform to fit their development goals. They also have access to a wide range of tutorials, and consultation with the itslearning Support team to ensure that this accelerated deployment is both sustainable and effective.
