My Big Campus launches new parent portal
Lightspeed Systems, creator of My Big Campus, has announced the new Parent Portal feature of the classroom collaboration tool. Coming this month, the new Parent Portal and associated parent accounts will enhance school-home communication and encourage real-time engagement between teachers, parents, and students—transforming My Big Campus from a safe social collaboration tool to a complete classroom Learning Management System (LMS).
My Big Campus is the buzzing educational hub between a device and the Web. Part learning management system, part social network, and part content management system, My Big Campus is the only solution that safely brings together all the tools students and educators need and makes them easy to access and easy to share—so it’s easy and fun to learn. Now with the addition of parent accounts, that circle of home-school collaboration and communication will be complete.
Features of the Parent Portal include:
•Viewable on any device with a web browser (including Apple mobile devices)
•Access to Activity Feed—including student wall posts, announcements, and events
•Ability to message students and communicate directly with school staff
•Access to students’ schoolwork and assignments
•Protection of student information through simple SIS integration
•And more on an easy to understand interface for parents
“We wanted to provide schools with a complete classroom learning and management tool to truly transform learning,” shares Lightspeed Systems’ CEO Joel Heinrichs. “We know that parents are a key part of that transformation.”
Establishing itself as an engaging and innovative LMS, My Big Campus enhances student-home communication and gives schools the ability to transform education through safe, collaborative, and mobile learning. With just this one tool, educators can provide a safe community for student collaboration, effectively communicate with parents, meet core curriculum standards, and create dynamic learning environments.
