Program Launch

In July 2020, the New Hampshire Department of Education (DOE) announced that it had received a three-year, $6.2 million grant to build a new program called iLearnNH. Since then, the NH DOE and University System of New Hampshire (USNH) have joined together to launch the initial iLearnNH cohorts, built a new team of six professionals with experience in K-12 education, teacher training, and ed tech tools, and rolled out three free tools for New Hampshire schools: the Canvas Learning Management System (LMS), Kaltura video management platform, and Zoom video conferencing service. iLearnNH has also developed a strong partnership with Discovery Education, another free tool available to New Hampshire schools that allows teachers to pull ready-made content into Canvas.

The iLearnNH team is committed to supporting teachers and students throughout the state by providing industry-standard tools and platforms, technical troubleshooting, resource sharing, professional development training, guidance for rollout and adoption, and best practices for remote learning. The iLearnNH contract has since extended to June 2024.
