Leading LMS Chosen for Learner-Centric Design, Ease of Use, and Parental Engagement Features
Boston, Aug. 7, 2017 — itslearning, the developers of the highly acclaimed single end-to-end teaching and learning platform, today announced that Point Isabel Independent School District (PI-ISD) has chosen itslearning at its new Learning Management System (LMS) after searching for a partner who could serve their needs in supporting its commitment to personalised learning.
“itslearning proved the unmatched choice to aid our pre-kindergarten through grade 5 students in personalising their learning experiences every day,” said Dr. Lisa Garcia, superintendent of PI-ISD. “We piloted several other programs but found itslearning to serve all our users: it’s easy for students to navigate, it gives teachers the opportunity for real-time interaction with their students, and it offers parents the chance to log in from home and assist their students.”
As a cloud-based learning platform, itslearning allows schools and universities to truly personalise learning and put students at the center by compiling resources, pedagogical strategies, objective-based lesson plans and assessments all in one easy-to-access, central location. The platform provides countless ways for students to engage in lessons and utilise resources, makes student and teacher collaboration and sharing of materials easy, and automates routine tasks so users have more time to focus on what matters — learning.
With the system’s new cloud integration, school districts using G-suite by Google or Microsoft’s Office 365, will find it easier to synchronise their preferred cloud service with their itslearning accounts and all their favorite cloud apps without ever leaving the itslearning LMS. Additionally, the itslearning LMS assessment updates make it even easier for teachers to assess and grade their students. Those updates include a streamlined grading workflow and a new capacity for annotating student submissions online. Teachers now have the ability to easily see students’ assignment status, to search and share assessment activities, and to deliver tests and see grades on any device.
“When we started our LMS search we asked our teachers, ‘If you could have the perfect LMS what would it be?’ After our extended vetting process — they chose itslearning.”
With a passion for improving teaching and learning through technology, itslearning lives at the heart of education. In fact, the itslearning platform is the first LMS in the K-12 marketplace to offer educators content accessible from the cloud, including 2 million free and open resources, searchable, tagged with rich metadata, and ready to use. Established in 1999, itslearning is headquartered in Boston, MA and Bergen, Norway and serves more than 7 million users worldwide.
