LMS: itslearning

School District: The Evansville (IN) Vanderburgh School Corporation (37 schools, 1,600 educators, and 23,000 students)

What they love about their LMS: Tim Wilhelmus, Innovation, Curriculum, and Technology Specialist, says itslearning serves as a centralised hub and digital playground for teachers and students. The platform offers an integration with Google Suite a flexible architecture that allows teachers to bring in “outside” Web tools and other functionalities, thus expanding the LMS and letting it “live outside of the itslearning space.” Wilhelmus particularly likes the itslearning Planner and Pages features. The fact that it can be utilised in primary grades is also important for this K-12 school district.
