itslearning's App Library contains a variety of free and paid teaching and learning apps that teachers use to improve their teaching. Using an open system similar to Apple's App Store, the itslearning App Library enables any person or company to easily develop and add an app to the library for free. According to Roger Stjernberg, global business development manager at itslearning, the open platform will give teachers and students access a wider variety of apps than ever before.
"A few other learning platforms include apps from third-party developers, but these use a closed system that restricts who can add apps. The itslearning App Library is different," says Roger. "We've taken a leaf out of the mobile phone and tablet app markets. Their open systems have led to a massive variety of apps, and this has proven hugely popular with consumers. Anyone can create an app and add it to our Library. There are already apps from some of the biggest digital teaching publishers, such as Britannica Online, J2Simple and Bridgeman Education."
itslearning is a learning platform provider dedicated solely to the education sector. Its learning platform is used by millions of educators, students, admin staff and parents around the world - and can be found at all levels of education, from primary schools to universities. The company is headquartered in Bergen, Norway, and has offices in London, Birmingham, Berlin, Enschede, Paris, Mulhouse, Malmö and Boston.
