Today, itslearning (www.itslearning.net) announced that Minneapolis Public Schools and Houston (Tex.) Independent School District have selected its cloud-based learning platform to expand personalized learning and instructional experiences for the combined student populations of more than 240,000 students.

“During our evaluation process, we found that there are several viable learning management systems in the market that met many of our requirements,” said Rich Valegra, chief information officer, Minneapolis Public Schools. “However, itslearning differentiated itself from the others not only by providing excellent features required for today’s learning and instructional needs but also by demonstrating excellent anticipation of what our upcoming demands may be.”

Designed for the K-12 sector, itslearning helps teachers to support and manage a personalized learning environment for today’s digitally wired students. The platform enables student voice and choice, facilitating collaboration and self-reflection through blogs, individualized learning plans, communities and ePortfolios.

The interactive online learning platform’s integration with existing school and district systems creates an interface that provides teachers with real-time reporting based on state and Common Core standards to guide their instruction.

A proprietary “standards mastery and recommendation engine” facilitates remediation, acceleration and review by automating the recommendation of resources and activities based upon standards mastery assessments. The recommendations are also tailored to the individual learning styles of each student.
