Boston, MA – June 22, 2016 — itslearning (www.itslearning.net), developer of the award winning personalized learning management platform of the same name, today announced it has been awarded a contract with the Texas Department of Information Services (DIR) that gives Texas school districts the assurances that they can now purchase the teaching and learning platform with the knowledge that it as been successfully reviewed and found to meet or exceed all of the technical requirements outlined by the state purchasing and procurement guidelines.

“This partnership is great news for Texas educators looking for a state-authorized purchasing solution that leverages the credibility of the Texas DIR,” said itslearning CEO, Arne Bergby. “Not all learning platforms and providers are created equal and we have gone the extra mile through this procurement process to demonstrate just that.”

Designed specifically for the K-12 sector, itslearning is a leading, cloud-based learning management system (LMS) that enables teachers to more effectively engage and personalize learning for today’s “digitally wired” students anytime, anywhere and on any device.

As a student-centered learning environment, itslearning gives teachers, students and parents access, as appropriate, to course materials, assignments, communities for collaboration, professional development tools and student progress reports. The platform’s user-friendly dashboards give teachers a way to quickly and easily share instructional resources, assignments and activities, and assessments with students while informing parents via personalized dashboards.

At the same time, students have the power to decide how they learn as the platform enables curriculum managers and teachers the ability to offer students a voice and choice support learning styles that offer the best opportunities for success. 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 specifically to the individual learning styles of each student – regardless of age, ability level, interests or special requirements.

Bergby concluded, “More than just being positioned as a software platform provider, we also share a grander vision to enable educational transformation and draw on our extensive experience over the past 16 years in project and change management. A key goal for us is to contribute and learn from the community of outstanding technology leaders to develop long-term partnerships that delivers best-in-class functionality to all districts so that they can keep their focus on elevating teacher efficiencies and facilitating student success.”
