Learn360 has launched an initiative to enable educators to maintain continuous learning in spite of a potential widespread outbreak of H1N1 and other flu viruses. This initiative is helping school districts comply with the U.S. Department of Education’s recent mandate to minimize academic disruptions should their schools be faced with the decision to close.

Earlier this year, the Department of Education reported more than 400 schools in 18 states closed to prevent the spread of the H1N1 virus, halting the learning of nearly 245,000 students nationwide. Learn360’s online classrooms are keeping students engaged in learning with teacher-created multimedia lesson plans containing videos, speeches, songs, images, Encyclopeadia Britannica articles and activities. Teachers can create assignments and projects, and prepare and deliver quizzes and tests online which students can access at home or in the classroom.

Learn360’s latest enhancements include the creation of a School Announcement Section, Mass Distribution Function, Assignment Wizard, Timed Assignment/Quiz Tool, Progressive Assignment Tool and Advanced Reporting Tools.
