Hughes writes....

Beyond Norway’s famous fjords, Viking ships and Northern Lights lies itslearning, which has become Europe’s largest Learning Management System provider. Founded in Bergen, Norway in 1999 by a group of dedicated students, itslearning’s goal was to create an online platform where teachers could share resources and files. A great concept where students could complete and submit assignments- all in one place. itslearning was built on the belief that when you elevate education, you elevate society.

An incredibly bold goal for a company from one of the smallest countries in Europe. But, the Norwegian public education system is one of the most prestigious in Europe, with a higher general level of education than the European average.

Norway is also a leading investor in education and has one of the highest levels of educational attainment, with 82% of the adult population having at least an upper secondary education. And itslearning is now their champion LMS system.

Now in the US, itslearning’s success continues with over 7 million teacher, student and parent users worldwide.
