The latest release of the itslearning management system focus on increasing the functionality of the system’s built-in Microsoft tools and ensuring that content is accessible for all students.

In addition to being faster when starting up, itslearning’s built-in Microsoft Office tools -- Word, Excel and PowerPoint -- now have support for accessibility checking. This allows teachers to create content for screen readers or check that previously-created content works well with screen readers in order to accommodate students with disabilities.

The Word tool now comes with word count and the ability to insert emojis while PowerPoint has more transitions. The Excel tool has the most updates, now supporting conditional formatting, sort and filter functions, improved pivot tables, pictures and shapes, additional charts and more options to freeze panes.
