Microsoft Gold partners, Learning Possibilities and Tech One Global, have announced an agreement to roll out the first fully featured Learning Management System (LMS) on Office 365, LP+365, in Bangladesh, Brunei, the Philippines, Nepal, Maldives and Sri Lanka.
LP+365 aimed at benefiting schools and transforming the way schools use Office 365. Tech One Global will provide the deployment, support and training related to LP+365 in these markets.
The innovative learning application, LP+365, which runs on the Microsoft Azure cloud, provides an intuitive user interface, personalized dashboard and various collaboration and assignment tools – leveraging the Office 365 cloud solution to aid classroom collaborations and assessments, engaging users to ensure a deeper learning. Additionally, LP+365 will enable educators and students to create and share in entirely new ways for more immersive and inclusive learning experiences.
Dr Mehool Sanghrajka, CEO, Learning Possibilities, said,
“The LP+365 LMS for Office 365 is built on our award-winning technology. Our global partnership with Microsoft will mean that schools in various Asia Pacific markets will be able to use LP+365 with Office 365 to enhance the teaching and learning experience.”
Lars Jeppesen, CEO and founder, Tech One Global added,
“It’s all about giving our kids and their teachers the best learning experience both in the classroom and at home. Many people think technology in education is about IT education or computer classes, but getting IT into every subject to teach how students can use the power of technology to solve problems, do research, prepare reports and presentations, crunch big numbers, do analytics, read, write — all of these — strengthen the learning experience. With the Microsoft-based learning platform, which works hand-in-hand with Office 365, we can do that, better.”
Rani Burchmore, Partner director, Education, Microsoft Asia Pacific, said,
“The partnership with Learning Possibilities and Tech One Global – two top tier Microsoft partners – brings proven software and technology with local support to drive educational impact on Office 365 and replicate best practice and results that we have already seen.”

This includes instant access to favorite Office 365 Apps like Word, Class Notebook, PowerPoint and etc.
LP+365 is the most advanced LMS built on Office 365. The solution fully utilizes the power of Office 365 and will give schools an education focused and effective learning platform delivering the LP+Adopt pedagogy, and features and functionality of the LP+4 platform.
