Do you have users of My learning who have a first language different from the language of instruction? Are you an international school? Do you have language students who would benefit from immersion in the language of study?

My Learning can be set to run in over 50 different languages. This can provide vital language support during times of transition while learning a new language.

YouTube videos and virtual files - your options!

Your My Learning Dashboard - Just The Way You Like It!

With My Learning’s latest release, you now have more control than ever over what appears on your My Learning Dashboard.

Your dashboard ‘panels’ can be moved around. You can change the look to make individual panels STAND OUT or sit quietly. You can remove panels you don’t use or add new ones that you need, perhaps to give you quick access to the grading centre or video approvals list. The 'Quick Links' panel takes you straight to the most important places. There is also a new primary dashboard, a dashboard alternative to the button theme but with the same friendly menus.

In short, your very own personalised Dashboard workspace.
