itslearning chosen by two large city districts

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

Today, itslearning announced that two of the nation’s top school districts – Minneapolis Public Schools and Houston (Tex.) Independent School District - have selected its next generation, cloud-based learning platform of the same name to rapidly optimize, support and expand personalized learning and instructional experiences for the combined student populations of more than 240,000 students.

“These new partnerships are a true testament to what our company and platform stands for: helping teacher’s inspire students to reach their highest potential,” said Chief Education Officer for itslearning, Bailey Mitchell. “With itslearning as a foundation for enriched learning experiences, the district’s are providing students with relevant, collaborative, multi-dimensional points of contact and a host of opportunities for interaction with course and subject materials. This generation of students is literally ‘wired’ to learn in different ways and these districts fully comprehend the idea of meeting students where and how they learn best - digitally.”

The decisions to migrate to the itslearning learning management system (LMS) came after the districts conducted comprehensive evaluations of multiple K-12 solutions. Following the formal assessments, both districts noted that itslearning was the learning platform of choice because it uniquely meets the needs of all its stakeholders including teachers, students, and parents. Offering a robust, user-friendly, fully customizable solution with a comprehensive set of features, district representatives felt confident they were acquiring more than just an LMS platform; rather, a partner that was equally committed to creating a solution that would truly help transform teaching and learning in their districts.
