Mehool commented, “Schools and colleges will not be fully open for months, and whilst many of them have put together a collection of resources, they need to consider their long-term strategies.”

Covid-offer-post

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in thousands of schools being shut and millions of children having their education disrupted. At Learning Possibilities we are keen to support schools during this difficult time, and together with Microsoft are now offering schools free LP+365 licenses until September 2020.

We know many schools have started to look at how they can provide remote learning using an eclectic mix of software for video conferencing, resource distribution and setting assignments. LP+365 works with Microsoft technology to deliver all this and more using an easy to learn dashboard whilst managing all the sensitive data securely.

“At Learning Possibilities we wanted to support schools at this difficult time. We appreciate that teaching and learning remotely is difficult, and many schools were not prepared for this pandemic. Our experience shows that LP+365 helps with both remote learning and parental engagement.   We are delighted to be working with Microsoft to make our platform available for free until September”, said Mehool Sanghrajka, CEO.

The offer for free LP+365 licences is available to schools with Microsoft Office365 tenancy (which is also available free to qualifying schools)  until 1 September 2020.

Technical Update

Update

Over the past 6 months, the LP Technical Teams have tirelessly worked on delivering projects for the Asia market.

After market due diligence, it was evident there was a need for a completely new Identity and Access Management protocol to be setup targeting a countrywide deployment.

Using our experience and knowledge of Microsoft products, the system foundations were designed for a countrywide rollout with future enhancements currently at the planning stage. These deployments would allow various technologies that are currently segregated to be consolidated, including the LP+365 Learning and Collaboration platform, using single sign-on.

The overall goal is to ensure the technology enables teachers to deliver education needs effectively!

LP+365 is integrated with Microsoft Teams, allowing teachers to access Teams from anywhere within LP+365 application through the menu bar. (See image)

Teams includes a Staffroom where Teachers can collaborate and communicate with other Teachers within the school. ‘Conversations’ allows Teachers to communicate via instant messaging and video meetings. ‘Files’ allows files and folders to be shared and the ‘Staff Notebook’ includes a collaboration space, content library and a private section for each member of staff.

Teams also allows Teachers to schedule video calls with their students when they need to Teach remotely. Video calls allow full access to LP+365 and include the options of sharing desktops, turning webcams on and off  and the recording of the class to share later with any absentees.

Learning Possibilities is pleased confirm the launch of its first office in Asia, in Singapore, to manage its growing portfolio of opportunities in the region. Over the past 3 years, the young population and government focus on education, has resulted in the region becoming a key part of the Company’s growth strategy. Learning Possibilities will establish an operations centre in the region to provide a launchpad for the business to make a significant social impact and accomplish its goal of bettering the lives of 100 million learners by 2022. The office will serve as the London based group’s regional headquarters for its activities in the Asian and Asia Pacific regions.
