Two countries, shared challenges
Through our Partner Programme, we cooperate with schools around the world. In Mexico, our platform is spreading like wildfire, with 40,000 new users expected to come online over the next six months. With schools in Mexico City lining up to try itslearning, awareness of the platform is reaching the tipping point.

But there is a good explanation for itslearning´s popularity in Mexico. Designed in Norway, itslearning has years of experience meeting the needs of the Norwegian education sector. As it turns out, Mexico shares many of the same education challenges as Norway, including access to education for students in remote areas.
Struggling to find a way to reach these students, Mexican education officials are impressed with itslearning´s ability to provide standardized education to students in far-flung regions. With itslearning, the student´s location and when they study are non-factors in terms of access to a quality education. Yet another example of itslearning not simply providing technology to schools, but technology grounded in an understanding of the pedagogical challenges facing schools in the areas where we operate.
