Itslearning is a multi-national, cloud-based learning platform that provides a complete course management and delivery solution for users in K-12 schools.
Using resources generated by content providers, fellow Itslearning users or themselves, teachers can create customized lessons, assessments and learning tools that can then be accessed by students and parents via computer, tablet or mobile device.
Users can also collaborate with colleagues and other professionals within the solution to get ideas or advice. During a lesson, reporting and analytics tools allow the instructor to see the results of in-class assignments in real time.
Homework and projects can be turned in by students for instructors to assess using their own custom rubric. Testing reports from Itslearning can also recommend follow-up assignments based on student weaknesses noted in their exams.
Itslearning pricing varies by institution size. It is available in the United States, Mexico and most of Europe.

Back in 2009 we were tired of the same-old, same-old we saw with North American providers and went looking in Europe and Asia to see what others were doing. We have used it for 8+ years and from the beginning (2009) it had key features that the other LMS providers here in North America lacked or charged extra to have included.
Example: Recording voice and video directly into the WYSIWYG editor. That transformed discussion boards. Exam questions could be delivered by voice or video. Student could answer similarly. The ePortfolio feature was included and not an extra integration and fee.
We actually had to turn off some features because we thought it would freak out instructors - like the feature that enabled any instructors from other organizations to enter your course, look around and ask you if they could use parts or all of it.
The point is that in 2009 this crew was ahead of its time and they have continued to add well thought-out improvements to the LMS 3-4 times annually. We are going to renew.... if they still want us.
It`s time for a new discussion board (as long as we don`t lose the audio/video record features) and more flexibility with how we can integrate 3rd party apps and features as we choose (cough, cough... Zapier... cough, cough).

For a while, the product was very dated looking, but after we switched to the "Modern" version I can say that it is leaps and bounds better. There is also a fairly steep learning curve that is required when using the software, it is not as basic as Google Classroom or a competitor LMS, but it does SO much more that it makes sense that it might take a bit longer to figure out how to use it to its full potential.
It is hands down the most powerful and versatile tool that we evaluated when deciding to choose a LMS. There is an enormous amount of features and functionalities that are possible to use, and the company worked with us to prioritize some must-haves into their upcoming releases. They have excellent customer support and are always helpful when we submit inquiries.

It is a true end-to-end LMS system with far advanced capabilities compared to bigger-named competitors
Some inconsistency in user experience - some dated visualizations - certain areas are over architected and could benefit from simplicity in ease-of-use

None, compared to using free tools like Dropbox.
It's a web platform. Accessible from everywhere. You can upload and download documents and store them in one location. Some GUI elements look quite nice.
It does not improve learning nor does it help teachers save time. There are too many bugs, and the user interface is inconsistant and not very intuitive. Some functions and features are silly.
