This press release was published by PRNewswire on May 6, 2015:
itslearning, maker of the personalized learning management platform of the same name, has announced a strategic partnership with Lightspeed Systems, creators of the My Big Campus (MBC) learning management system. Lightspeed Systems is retiring its LMS and has selected the itslearning platform as the preferred alternative for MBC customers.
In addition to assisting MBC users as they transition to itslearning's digital learning environment, the partnership will strive to make a unique K-12 experience by integrating the itslearning platform with Lightspeed Systems. The partnership will support seamless content migration from MBC to the itslearning platform.
"We've found a way to preserve what our customers love most about MBC and transition them onto a mature, competitively advanced LMS," said Joel Heinrich, Lightspeed Systems CEO. "The powerful combination of the acclaimed itslearning platform, high-quality content migration, and MBC's safety is unparalleled."
To make the transition easier for MBC customers, itslearning will be offering a special conversion package wherein any pre-payments made for MBC will be credited to customers' account for use of the new integrated platform. The company is also offering a preferred rate to customers transitioning from MBC. More information can be found here.
"It is a great testament to the value of the itslearning business and platform that we have been selected by the MBC team, and more importantly by their customers, as their preferred platform of choice to migrate away from MBC," said Arne Bergby, CEO of itslearning. "I'm confident that this will ease the concern of districts that are planning to transition onto another platform for the coming school year."
Designed specifically for the K-12 sector, the itslearning platform's seamless integration with existing systems creates a user-friendly interface that gives teachers a way to share instructional resources, assignments and activities, and assessments with students and parents via personalized dashboards. At the same time, students have the power to decide how they learn as the solution automatically adapts to support learning styles that offer the best opportunities for success.
Established in 1999, itslearning is a cloud-based K-12 learning management system designed to make teaching easier, learning more engaging, and parent involvement more effective and efficient. At itslearning, we pride ourselves on understanding the needs of education. More than 20% of our employees have worked as teachers, and we can often be found in the classroom, learning from teachers. Headquartered in Bergen, Norway, itslearning has offices in Boston, Central Milton Keynes, Berlin, Paris, Mulhouse, Malmo, Copenhagen, and Enscheda.
