By Admin | Published:

Learning platforms are all about getting pupils excited about education. If the pupils do not buy into the platform, it will not succeed no matter how many features it offers, or how much time educators spend on it.

With this in mind, we asked a group of local school children what they thought about Learnanywhere, after letting them loose on the system for themselves -  and as you can see, the verdict was unanimous!

The character got plenty of praise from users across the country. So much in fact, that one of our expert graphic designers rushed straight back to the drawing board with a cunning plan. Quick as a flash he compiled a huge list of ideas and began sketching a line of exciting new avatars.
