itslearning Announces UBIT as New Partner in Turkey


Posted on

UBIT, the leading provider of EdTech solutions in Turkey has entered an agreement to provide Universities and K-12 schools across Turkey with the cloud-based LMS solution from itslearning.

itslearning is pleased to announce a new partner agreement with UBIT Turkey. The agreement will enable UBIT to distribute the itslearning LMS SaaS solution to schools and universities, as well as providing training, consultancy and 1st line support services.

“This reseller agreement with itslearning will allow us to expand our service portfolio and generate recurring revenue streams for our business. More importantly, students and teachers across Turkey will now be able to quickly transform their teaching and learning processes with a fully-featured Learning Management System. With our dedicated and fully trained LMS support team, we are now able to offer schools and universities a complete online education package within 24 hours, helping clients to provide distance education to all their students.”

Yahya Şahin, General Manager UBIT

The ongoing Covid-19 virus situation and the school and university closures in Turkey has also pressed home the importance of having an online teaching and learning strategy, something that is likely to fuel the need for Turkish school districts and universities to adopt new cloud-based teaching methods in the coming months.

Helge Rognstad, senior sales director at itslearning, comments, “Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) is rapidly transforming how schools and universities in Turkey choose to address their teaching challenges. At the same time our SaaS service is attractive for UBIT because cloud services resonate with their customer’s needs to improve teaching mobility and enable social teaching methods.”

In a separate announcement on the 19th of March 2020, UBIT’s strategic client Bahcesehir University (BAU) in Istanbul announced the decision that the spring semester will be based on distance education (online) due to the Corona virus outbreak. BAU is one of the most prestigious higher education institutions in Turkey and already have over 30,000 users on the itslearning platform.
