Boston, MA – July 11, 2016 — itslearning, today announced that its newly enhanced personalized learning management platform has been named Best of Show by NewBay Media publications, Tech & Learning, at ISTE 2016. itslearning’s newly redesigned interface sets the platform apart from competitors and it was the only learning management system (LMS) honored as one of dozens of education technology products evaluated at the International Society for Technology in Education’s (ISTE) annual conference, which took place June 26-29 in Denver, CO.
Designed specifically for the K-12 market, itslearning has helped educators worldwide to improve functionality in and out of the classroom using their next generation learning system. The intuitive LMS features –– including curriculum management, communication, collaboration, and analytics reporting –– effectively connects teachers, parents, and students to create differentiated learning solutions for every student.
The main benefits of the newly redesigned platform include simplification and modernization of the interface and navigation, making the platform feel like an extension of the physical classroom, empowering teachers to follow best practices, and increased compatibility with mobile devices. The new system is catered towards users and helping them accomplish goals while putting the focus back on the learner.
“We are committed to helping educators. We want to make their core tasks easier so they can focus on student outcomes – not navigating myriad systems to get their jobs done,” said Arne Bergby, itslearning CEO. “We are honored to be awarded this prestigious distinction by Tech & Learning, cementing our position as the leading LMS in K-12 education.”
For the third year, Tech & Learning presented its prominent awards program honoring great products at ISTE. Winners were selected by an anonymous panel of educator judges, who scoured the exhibit hall floor during what has become the largest education technology conference in North America. The judges rated their impressions on a sliding scale, evaluating
areas such as quality and effectiveness, ease of use, and creative use of technology. They also solicited in-person demonstrations to decide which solutions will have the most impact in the classroom and are deserving of Best of Show distinction. The winners will be featured in the August issue of Tech & Learning.
