Europe’s most widely used learning platform, itslearning, and Google for Education have joined forces to improve teaching and learning through technology.
The global collaboration between itslearning and Google for Education initiates the first phase of a comprehensive technological roadmap for the two companies. The interaction between the itslearning platform and Google’s “G Suite” will benefit teachers and students worldwide. These benefits will also be extended to Fronter customers (which itslearning acquired in 2015) via a free upgrade path to itslearning.
In modern learning, students work best in a learning platform environment, allowing teachers to plan, deliver, communicate and engage, and formatively assess student learning against academic goals, all within one platform, in any location and from any device. The integration between G Suite and itslearning will seamlessly combine users’ favourite tools alongside those of itslearning, facilitating a true learning-centric environment.
Benefits realised include Google Drive integration and file uploading, Google file collaboration, giving feedback in real-time on Google Docs, creating Google document templates, Google Hangouts within Instant Messaging amongst others, all seamlessly within itslearning.
Matthew Jordan, Head of Sales & Marketing at itslearning UK says, “The new collaboration agreement between itslearning and Google means that we can jointly create broad and deep interoperability between the two systems. The best features of Google Classroom will be a prominent place in itslearning’s LMS and vice versa. The learning environment is easy to use for both students and teachers, and it makes the learning platform an even stronger educational tool. ”
Additional integration features will be released throughout 2019. Liz Sproat, Head of EMEA for Google for Education: “we are looking forward to working with itsLearning who share a similar approach to us in the solutions they provide to schools. Both Google and itsLearning work closely with teachers to create tools to help enrich and streamline the teaching & learning experience in the classroom.”
Google and itslearning will be showcasing this integrated platform on Stand C230 at the BETT Show in Excel London from the 23rd – 26th of January. Find out more at: https://itslearning.com/global/itslearning-innovation-summit-bett/
