Lagos, Nigeria 09 May 2016 – Learning can be fun and interactive, even when the teacher is not physically present. Creating a whole new way to learn, leading technology giant, Microsoft is partnering with Dynamiss Digital Learning Solutions Limited, a teaching and learning digital solutions company to unveil the LP+365 classroom solution.

The LP+365 classroom solution is a cloud-based learning platform which transforms the Microsoft Office365 into a school’s virtual learning environment, enabling teachers to design and plan the curriculum, deliver subject material, manage coursework and communicate with learners using simple drag and drop technology.

The application which will be unveiled soon at “The Future of Learning” Conference, will offer those who attend, a chance to gain exclusive access to free Microsoft Teaching, with technology training hosted by the Microsoft Nigeria Education team. Participants will also get a chance to win the latest Tablets, Phones and more from Microsoft on Wednesday, May 18, 2016 at the prestigious Civic Centre, V.I, Lagos during the event.

Commenting on the initiative, Education Programs Manager, Microsoft Nigeria, Jordan Belmote said that Digital literacy is neither an option nor a luxury, rather it is an essential part of studying, working and living in the twenty-first century.

Belmote added that, “This is the real deal for every educator, the Dynamiss LP+365 solution provides the students with an “Always-On” learning experience anytime, anywhere - home, school or in the library. Students can access the platform through mobile devices using Microsoft productivity tools to do everything from taking notes, submitting coursework to collaborating with their classmates on projects. The platform brings together the best of Microsoft cloud technology and Office365 to create an engaging and intuitive, personalized learning environment for teacher-student interaction.”

Commenting further on the solution, Chief Executive Officer, Dynamiss Digital Learning Solutions Limited, Roland Sodeinde, explained the motive of the solution, adding that, “The idea is to enhance digital literacy in Nigerian Schools, from Primary to tertiary level. Nigeria has made significant progress over the last decade in preparing students for the digital world that we now live in, but there is a need to put more in place, to become competitive and play at the same level as their counterparts in developed countries. Whether we like it or not, whether we prepare our children or not, the world is changing at a previously unimaginable pace.”
