e-Learning sounds goods in paper and forward-thinking, but its implementation remains a serious challenge for many governments across Africa and other developing nations. Take, for instance in South Africa (SA) where the industry experts say very few schools in the country have the ability to effectively roll our e-learning programs. That inability is attributed to a lack of understanding of the e-learning platforms, but that doesn’t seem to be the case with SPARK Schools in SA.
SPARK Schools describe itself as an innovative network of private schools in SA that was founded in 2012. It has gone big on tech and adopted one of the world’s best learning management system – itslearning – as the schools’ learning platform.
What is itslearning
In August 2018, Google partnered with itslearning to create a world class learning management system (LMS) and integrated it into G Suite. SPARK Schools have been a longtime enterprise consumer of Google Classroom and naturally, they bought into the idea of itslearning through G Suite.
