Thank you for contributing to another successful year for itslearning! Our company is growing in an effort to better serve you – our customers and users. We aim to make teaching more efficient and inspiring for educators, students and schools across the world.
We now have over four million users globally! Last year we were pleased to welcome numerous schools and districts into the itslearning community. Some of the most notable additions were Houston Independent School District (over 200,000 students), City of Stockholm (185,000 students), Oslo County (80,000 students) and City of Bremen (57,000 students).
In addition, we’ve joined forces with the learning platform SkoleIntra in Denmark. itslearning’s SkoleIntra is used in every public school in Denmark and Greenland. Our learning platform is now available in seventeen languages.
itslearning employs over 250 people across Europe and the United States. We continue to hire employees skilled in design, engineering, pedagogy and other expertise, in order to provide you with the best possible solution.
There have been three product updates this past year. Highlights include new login and home pages, as well as updates to the planner, calendar, parent portal, learning objectives and library. itslearning is now an IMS certified LTI Tool Consumer. This technology allows teachers to embed interactive content from a growing set of resources, activities and tools provided by different companies around the world.
We are increasing our focus on a user-friendly itslearning by dedicating 50% of our development resources to user experience. We have hired additional specialists – web designers and front end developers – and have established two new user experience teams. We are committed to ensuring that everyone has the same great itslearning experience regardless of the device they are using.
In 2015, we will continue to focus on user experience and support for mobile devices, as well as the integration of collaboration and co-editing tools to our platform. We will also be launching a unique integration with Office Web Apps.
Vision, hard work, and passion drive this organisation to put the most innovative learning solution into the hands of teachers and students across the globe. Stay tuned for even more improvements!
On behalf of the itslearning staff, we wish you a safe and happy holiday season and a prosperous New Year.
