From humble beginnings…

In 1998, a group of students at Bergen University College asked themselves a simple question: Why were digital tools rarely being used to teach at their school? Being ambitious computer engineers, they decided to change that. For their master’s project, they built a learning management system. A single place where teachers could share educational resources and files, and students could complete and hand-in assignments. It was a hit. The next year, itslearning LMS was born and Bergen University College became its first customer.

We like to think big. Our vision is that effective use of technology can vastly improve the world of education. Since 1999, our mission has been to make the world’s best teaching and learning solutions for schools. an award-winning learning management system.
