Itslearning was chosen for our district because of their commitment to supporting Universal Design for Learning. The platform allows teachers to design a learning environment that that is focused on student choice and voice. Students are able to learn through multiple means of representation, show what they know through multiple means of action and expression while being engaging. This includes text, video, audio, images, and embedding.
The platform also allows our corporation to have all of our resources in one area. This can be completed through single-sign-on through LTI or through a very diverse shared library. We have over 2 million elements in our library now.
Itslearning's service is also easy to work with and very responsive. They check in often, work with our specific district's needs, and have given us a voice in the development of the platform.
The itslearning gradebook is still a work in progress. It is not the main gradebook we use as a district, but it is difficult to make changes to grades on an individual student need. They are in the process of developing a new gradebook and we have been pleased with the pilot versions so far.
Itslearning is a worldwide platform dedicated to K-12 education. They are constantly improving the platform.
Before we had itslearning, we had over 5 learning management systems in use. Itslearning has unified our district K-12 as well as all of our professional development and staffing requirements. Everyone in our district has an account and knows that it is the information hub.
All of our content is now available 24/7 for all of our students and teachers. This has allowed us to extend learning past the traditional school hours, allowed students to stay up to date if they have to miss school, and allows us to have eLearning days.
