SIS Global, leaders in technology solutions for Schools and Universities, and Skooler, leaders in Online Learning Tools, announce that Lighthouse Alternative Education has partnered with them to deploy a modern, personalised, Digital learner management solution.

SIS Global has built a strong reputation in the global education market and has a strong focus on Africa, \and, in particular, South Africa. Together with Skooler, SIS Global will help Lighthouse Alternative Education to see better learning outcomes for students and more frequent and improved communication between teachers and parents.
SIS Global is Global Education System integrator and an award-winning Microsoft Gold Partner. Skooler is a leading Next Generation Learning Platform solution built exclusively for Office 365 for Education. Lighthouse Alternative Education’s strategy is to leverage the Microsoft Education tools extensively and as such, with the seamless integration of Skooler into Microsoft Office 365 for Education , this solution will be rolled out very quickly to the staff and student base at Lighthouse Alternative Education.
“Gartner states that K-12 education CIOs should ”expand beyond the basics of creating learning management systems (LMSs) or video web conferencing connections between teachers and students by identifying other digital capabilities to improve instruction.” A top trend impacting K-12 Education is embracing the Hybrid World. We are very pleased to be taking this journey with Lighthouse Alternative Education by welcoming them onto the Skooler platform. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial partnership.”
