Welsh language support

We've completely revamped our language translation engine so that it now directly supports the Welsh language. At last, Welsh schools can use our Learning Platform to fulfill their obligations to be able to teach and deliver content in dual-language.

My Learning Ltd is also working on the production of specific Welsh content ready for the Autumn term. Watch this space!

Student FaceBook...?

Whether we love or loathe them... social networking websites are everywhere. In education, once has to assess their value:

1) They promote individualism and group sharing
2) They are simple and easy to access
3) they encourage diversity and creativty

Not everything is good news however...

1) There is no control of who has access to your information
2) The system cannot be controlled by the school
3) There are no forms of censorship
4) The systems can be abused

Fortunately, My Learning Ltd are all too aware of these critical issues. That\'s why we\'ve written a new extension to our range of VLE and Learning Platform products.

Our latest update now provides full support for your users to create and maintain their own social networking profile from within the system. 100% safe, moderated and censored.

Best of all, there are controls which protect and monitor your students at all times, meaning that their data stays on the platform and is NOT accessible to the entire planet!

It's a great way of empowering students and teachers to be creative, and enjoy the benefits of Social Networking, without the dangers.

New buddy groups!

Now your school users can create their own "Buddy Groups" which allow your teachers and students to create their own shared areas to store files and media.

This is a great way to support after-school activities, hobby clubs, or even just as an shared folder on your Learning Platform.

Teachers can also take advantage of these informal areas, which can hold teachers, students and administrators. You can easily control who has access, and what type of permission.
