Early User Interface – Important changes
This summer we have some very exciting changes happening to the itslearning platform. Changes include a new interface, new features and updates to existing features.
At the end of July, the early learner course interface is being retired from itslearning, this means that it will no longer be possible to create new early learner courses. Any existing early learner courses will be converted to ordinary courses. Our design team is looking into how we optimise the new itslearning for our youngest users, and we will communicate these updates at a later date.

If you are about to log in....you may find you suddenly have a brand new feature...Office 365!
Office 365! Its amazing! You get:
to use Word, Powerpoint and Excel free online (great for teachers and pupils ...oh and something called "closing gaps"!
an amazing email and calandar system based on hotmail - but with an education address
Cloud storage on a skydrive. No more memory sticks (that's why they are so cheap in the shops now!)
Teachers - you should see it ..top right under inbox, pupils it may be there or your school may have blocked it ...do ask as it is not just about email access.
Your space not my space
What do you want to see in this space? Send in your stories and pictures showing how you and your school are using Its Learning.
Let's share some of the fantastic things that are going on out there! Ask your teacher to email the Administrator and I'll put it here for all the Bedford Schools to see. (They will find details on the Bedford Borough dashboard).
A number of schools will experience problems with emails whilst the emails are migrated to Office 365. When Office 365 is available it will be awesome! Its Learning sent out the following email some while ago:
As you may be aware Microsoft are replacing the Live@edu email service and replacing it with a brand new offering called Office365. To make sure all of our existing Live@edu customers benefit from this new service we will be upgrading all accounts over the next 6 weeks.
Initially the migration will provide the same functionality as your current Live@edu service but with an updated interface. We estimate that some interruption will occur the week commencing Monday 5th August and during this time you will be unable to access your email for a couple of days.
Within 3 months of this initial migration the look and feel of Office365 will alter again, but unfortunately we are unable to estimate when this will happen.
We are working closely with Microsoft over the coming months to provide the options of online office apps and cloud-based share point solutions.
If you have any questions about the migration please do not hesitate to contact us on 0121 262 3500.
