If you’re from one of the hundreds of New Zealand state or state-integrated schools that have yet to establish a Learning Management System, this is an opportunity you really don’t want to miss.
As you may have heard, the Ministry of Education made a small amount of funding available to assist schools in providing an online portal for parents and students to engage with the school. Learning Management Systems and Parent Portals provide new and effective ways for schools to communicate with parents, and for families to follow student progress and engage with their learning.
As a Ministry-approved and preferred LMS vendor, Ultranet qualifies as such a portal with its seamlessly integrated parent portal, virtual classroom, ePortfolio and school website functionality. Over 200 schools across New Zealand have already taken advantage of this opportunity, giving them a massive head start towards integrating an online learning environment.
However, we are now down to less than 20 funded spaces. And they will expire.
Although schools can defer implementation to as late as Term 4 2012, funded places themselves will expire on 10 June 2012. Following this date, schools who wish to adopt Ultranet with the 12-month Implementation Plan and 6-month fee waiver included will be out of luck.
If your school is eligible and keen to secure a place, download the Information Pack now or contact us at Ultranet if you have any questions. You don’t want to miss out on this!
