We’re making it easier for teachers to use our award-winning LMS by simplifying steps and adding more time-saving tools. We want to make it easier for you, so that you can focus on teaching, rather than worrying about the educational technology in your classroom. Here’re some of the cool features we think you will love when you head back to school this fall. We even have videos to help you get started.

Stay Organised

The new course cards homepage is a smarter colour-coded overview so teachers and students can see all key courses in one view.

  • Customizable
  • Prioritize activities by the due date
  • Easy to sort and organize
  • Just one click to move or hide courses no longer in use

Switch from Course page view to Updates – to see the stream and revised task list.

  • Focus on the most immediate tasks
  • Hides tasks that are due much later

360° Reports Upgrades

Teachers can now share 360° Reports with students to give them ownership of their learning and create more engaged and creative learners.

And, we will send teachers a weekly summary of how their students are faring, so you can do more with the data to improve learning.

Mass Messaging

School administrators can directly reach large groups of people (students, parents, teachers), for instance, to announce school closure due to snow.

With the mass messaging feature you can send an instant message to groups in your hierarchy or the whole organisation.

Empower Students


Encourage more student engagement and ownership of their learning with our self-assessment feature – now an option in the assignment tool. Teachers just tick the ‘Require self-assessment’ box when creating or editing an assignment. When an assignment requires self-assessment, the student will be asked to assess themselves after they have submitted their answer. Teachers also have the option of selecting rubric or assessment (grade) scales as a guide for the student to use. Teachers can access the self-assessments and add comments in the All-in-One grader.

Fully mobile

Today’s learners see their educational futures built around technology. That’s why we’ve made it possible for teachers and students to get the itslearning experience on any mobile device.

Communicate safely, stay on track with key school events and access your resources anytime, anywhere with the itslearning app.

Plan To Stay Ahead

Plans look like the traditional lesson plan that teachers love, but do so much more. We consider it to be more of a course roadmap.

  • Create standards-aligned lessons quickly and effectively
  • Customisable, re-use year after year
  • Streamlines course organisation
  • Shows how learning will be generated, supported, and assessed
  • Guides students through learning

Guide and Nurture

Feedback is a crucial part of teaching and learning. With itslearning you have a variety of ways to provide guidance to your students – text, audio and video.

Our Flash-free media recorder is completely plugin free, works on mobile devices and is available in the rich text editor across our platform.

For Karol, a shy young student in Indiana, US, the recorder proved to be a life-changing feature. Watch her inspiring story.

Other great features

We’ve created a series of tutorials and other videos to show you how to use some of our popular tools and features. We’ll keep adding to our YouTube page, so remember to check back for new videos, tips and webinars.
