Sept. 18, 2012 - PRLog -- Learning Possibilities, the UK’s leading provider of learning platforms for schools, is delighted to announce that it has been selected by the Welsh Government through a competitive process to support its vision of creating the world’s best online environment for learning. The platform will support national actions including encouraging, supporting and preparing teachers to operate in a digital environment and to share their digital practice. The platform will eventually support up to one million users and will host a national collection of digital resources to support teaching and learning for learners aged 3 to 19 in Wales which will be known as the National Digital Repository.

Mehool Sanghrajka, Learning Possibilities’ Chief Executive commented “We are thrilled that we have been selected for this important national project. Our experience in building cloud based learning platform and our work on the ADOPT framework and related pedagogy will be critical in driving this project. I look forward to a long partnership with the Department and schools in Wales.’

Learning Possibilities will work closely with users, schools, local authorities and regional educational consortia to deliver secure collaboration between staff and students through a bi-lingual, personalised interface. The platform will also include open public access to resources. The solution will be based on the recently released LP+4 platform integrated with Office 365, which was showcased at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in July 2012.

Commenting on one of the largest Office 365 education projects, Steve Beswick, Microsoft UK Education Director, added “I am delighted that the Microsoft and Learning Possibilities partnership continues to show tremendous results with another national learning platform win. LP+4 was one of the first learning platforms to fully integrate into Office 365, offering great value, tools and resources to any school regardless of size.’

Learning Possibilities launched the LP+4 learning platform in November 2011 and this is the second national project to be announced, following a win in the Middle East earlier this year.

About LP+4
LP+4 is the latest learning platform from Learning Possibilities built on SharePoint 2010. The first LP+ was launched in 2004 as a cloud based solution built on fifteen Microsoft enterprise technologies. The solution provides a personalised interface and offers web 2.0 tools for collaboration in a secure environment. Users can access LP+4 from any browser and use a variety of content.

Teachers are supported by the LP+ ADOPT portal, providing technical and pedagogical support, professional development, and opportunities of collaborate and share best practice.

About Learning Possibilities
Learning Possibilities focuses entirely on providing centrally hosted and managed, robust and scalable learning platforms to both individual educational establishments and federations through its LP+ technology. Our services include designing, delivering, implementing, managing and driving adoption of simple and intuitive learning platforms to raise attainment and to empower learners by providing the opportunity for personalised learning pathways. Learning Possibilities has a significant presence in the UK and the Middle East.

In partnership with Wolverhampton City Council, Learning Possibilities has developed a learning platform adoption framework, LP+ ADOPT, that has been widely credited as providing the adoption structure that has been missing from learning platform delivery. Becta recently chose the framework to form the basis of the National English Learning Platform Maturity Model.

In 2010, Learning Possibilities won the prestigious BETT award for ICT Education Partnership for its work on LP+ and ADOPT.
