Learning Possibilities and Capita Managed IT Solutions announce exclusive partnership offering award-winning App to schools throughout UK and Ireland
Capita Managed IT Solutions is thrilled to announce an exciting new partnership with Learning Possibilities Limited, the UK’s leading cloud based learning platform provider, offering the award-winning LP+365 App to schools throughout Great Britain, the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
The LP+365 App has transformed the way schools use Microsoft Office 365, providing a digital solution to the management of teaching and education resources.
Imagine a scenario whereby students and teachers can instantly communicate and collaborate with one another, can access homework assignments, online textbooks and projects remotely from school, home or indeed any location with internet access.
The app effectively presents both teacher and student with a ‘virtual school’ that can be accessed using any computer, tablet device or smartphone. Running on the Microsoft Azure cloud, the LP+365 App has transformed Microsoft Office 365 into a school Learning and Collaboration System that’s accessible anytime, anywhere.
A leading IT Services organisation delivering cloud, end-to-end IT Solutions, and IT Managed Services, Capita Managed IT Solutions has garnered a reputation as a specialist in the EdTech arena, having accumulated over 30 years’ experience within Primary, Post-Primary, Further and Higher Education sectors.
Learning Possibilities collaboration with Microsoft began in 2003 with the development of the first cloud based Microsoft SharePoint learning platform. Since then it has signed a Global Alliance with Microsoft and this year was named ‘Finalist – Microsoft Education Partner of the Year’. The LP+365 App captures the essence of the LP+ platform, which is contracted to over one million users across the UK and brings a teaching and learning focused approach to Microsoft Office 365.
Anthony Salcito, Vice President Education at Microsoft commented:
“Microsoft is committed to empowering the students of today to create the world of tomorrow. We believe access to a quality education and the opportunity to learn digital literacy skills is a fundamental right and not a privilege,” said Anthony Salcito, Vice President Education at Microsoft. “We are humbled by and grateful for our partners’ who deliver learning experiences across our platforms – enabling students to use tools that can help them secure employment today, and in the future. We couldn’t be more excited by this important partnership between Learning Possibilities and Capita Managed IT Solutions.”
Dr Mehool Sanghrajka, CEO of Learning Possibilities commented:
