A central place for teachers, students and parents to interact and share

How do you ensure learning after the bell rings? Strengthen school community ties by providing safe spaces for groups of students and teachers to interact outside of normal classroom activities. Create student communities for school clubs, and professional learning communities for teachers to help develop their skills and promote job satisfaction. Keep parents involved in their children’s school lives through a dedicated Parent Portal with automatic updates on academic progress, access to assignments and more.

Teacher to Teacher

Communities: Teachers can use communities to collaborate across the district, by grade level or subject area. Others can join communities for special or pedagogical interests.

Library: Teachers can share resources 
in the Library, collaborate on shared resources, and rate and review resources.

Teacher to Student

Planner: Teachers use the planner not
only to plan, organize and align units and lessons to standards, but also to communicate with other teachers and students.

Bulletins: Post bulletins to students as text, video or audio.

Messages: Send instant messages to the entire class, one group, or to individuals. Send messages through the itslearning “your student” profile card with all the student assessments and tasks immediately accessible, or through the recommendation engine, informing students of personalized tasks.

Rubric and Assessment Feedback: Teachers use rubrics not just to score performance, but to give students concrete, actionable feedback on assignments.

Student to Student

Discussion Boards: Students can post ideas or collaborate on subjects, using the rich text editor to record audio and video, or embed external media.

Course Group Folders: Groups can have their own course folders to add resources, or communicate through discussion boards, chat and video conferencing.

Digital Student Communities: Students can create communities and invite others to join so they can collaborate on projects, special interests, study groups or clubs.

Teacher/School to Parent

With a dedicated, customizable Parent Portal, parents have simple and secure access to information about all of their children, which makes teacher-parent communication easier than ever.

An LMS must seamlessly live in your existing environment. This means bringing together all the necessary digital content and data from key software applications such as Student Information Systems (SIS), into one, complete solution. No fumbling for the right passwords. No data silos. Nice and easy.

With itslearning you can integrate with your SIS, content vendors, apps and external learning resources, giving your students, parents and teachers one login that meets all their needs.

Take Office 365, used by millions of students and teachers all over the world. With itslearning plus Office 365 you can of course get access to your e-mail account, but you can also integrate with OneDrive, meaning you can easily upload resources and students can submit assignments. You can add Office Mix or OneNote to your courses, to have Mix playlists and a class notebook. The possibilities are endless.logo_drive_64px

Opted for Google instead of Office365? No worries; we also integrate with Google Drive. That way teachers can upload Google files to a course, or share their uploaded Google files through our Library.

We integrate easily with other systems because we comply with Learning Tools Interoperability® (LTI®), a trademark of the IMS Global Learning Consortium, Inc. (www.imsglobal.org), and a standard which defines the communication between a learning management system and a third party application.

Since LTI is a global standard, you can easily integrate with many apps and content providers.

Smooth integrations with leading SIS providers mean we fetch user and class information to populate the course hierarchy in itslearning. Compare to the alternative of manually creating and updating users and groups, the time savings are massive.

 

Education is a team sport and an LMS cannot be an island. The most successful customers ensure that their LMS is well integrated into the rest of their digital environment. This drives greater adoption, and higher student performance.
