NEW YORK —

Reintroducing Learn360 with new playlist editors, predictive filtering, fully responsive new design, and more!

Infobase Holdings, the award-winning provider of the Infobase Media Cloud and the Infobase Learning Cloud, announced exciting new enhancements to its robust award-winning platform, Learn360. Already a powerful tool for flipped classrooms, blended instruction, project-based learning, and 1:1 environments, teachers, students, and parents will find it easier than ever to discover, filter, and edit content.

With significant mobile responsiveness improvements, including speed and page load times, Learn360 is poised to engage young audiences by displaying interactive content faster. Users of all ages, including classroom teachers, curriculum directors, and parents can benefit from predictive search results, saving options, and notifications throughout the site.

Learn360 currently serves more than 22 million students in 26,900+ schools across the United States and Canada.

“Customer experience drives every decision we make at Infobase—it helps us deliver the most versatile, powerful, and useful product possible,” said Paul Skordilis, CEO of Infobase. “These advancements to Learn360 allow educators to better engage students and facilitate increased learning via innovative, intuitive technology.” 

Learn360 Offers Access to the Best Educational Content Available Through Any Internet-Enabled Device, Anytime, Anywhere.  

Learn360 is the ultimate streaming multimedia resource for K–12 schools. Users will discover engaging content with landing pages that make it easy to find the wealth of videos, interactives, printables, audio content, maps and flags, and the entire site and all landing pages can be filtered by grade level (all grades, elementary, or middle/high) for targeted browsing. On its platform, users will discover content from PBS, BBC, National Geographic, Sesame Street, Smithsonian, The History Channel, Jim Henson, ClickView, Franklin, LeVar Burton Kids, and more!
