Dhaka, Bangladesh 27th February, 2017 – Independent University, Bangladesh today signed a Microsoft Education Agreement with Tech One Global launching the start of a commitment to deliver a learning environment to students of the future. This will include piloting the LP+365 LMS App utilizing Microsoft Office 365 from Learning Possibilities, and support, training and management from Tech One Bangladesh.
IUB will be the first University to adopt cutting edge technologies that will drive transformation of its teaching and learning methods through the use of market leading toolsets like Microsoft Office 365, the LP+365 Learning Management System and Enadoc Document Management.
LP+365 was developed in partnership with Microsoft, by Learning Possibilities, the providers of the All Wales National Learning Platform. In April, 2016 Tech One Global, a Microsoft Gold Partner signed a partnership with Learning Possibilities to market and support the deployment and adoption of the LP+365 LMS App in Bangladesh, Brunei, the Philippines, Nepal, Maldives and Sri Lanka.
The LP+365 LMS is an App hosted on the Microsoft Azure cloud and utilizes the market leading software, Microsoft Office 365. The App transforms the O365 productivity toolset into a creative, collaborative and engaging LMS.
Tech One Global, and their local team will deploy, support and manage the software and services provided by Microsoft and Learning Possibilities. In addition their cloud based document imaging system, Enadoc will structure and organize the University’s document management.
Founded in 1993, IUB is one of the oldest private universities in Bangladesh where academic excellence is a tradition, teaching a passion and making lifelong learning a habit. IUB’s goals are to produce graduates of international standards within the local environment. The University curriculum is progressively revised and adjusted on the basis of their relevance to national needs and the global market demand.
Prof. M Omar Rahman, Vice Chancellor of IUB, is keen to bring the latest technologies to benefit the students and saw that Microsoft and partners Tech One Global and Learning Possibilities will offer relevant access to tools and services used by the ‘working-world’ – developing learners for the future and preparing them for life after education.

“Our Global Alliance with Microsoft and partnership with companies like Tech One Global enable us to innovate and provide further best practice solutions similar to our national deployment in Wales – the All Wales National Learning Platform. We are a social enterprise and at our heart is a passion to allow children to be the best they possibly can.
