Software group targets students.

Educational software group Amazing has launched a new product to allow students to fill out individual learning plans (ILPs) online rather than on paper.

The Newcastle company is targeting its latest product at further education colleges across the country and has enlisted the help of North-East athletics legend Jonathan Edwards, who recorded a special podcast for the launch.

Alex Mackenzie, ILP product champion at Amazing, said: "Further education colleges must have individual learning plans, known as ILPs, for their 16 to 19-year-old students. Up until now, these have been largely paper-based and, for most tutors and students, were a rather dull experience.

"We saw the opportunity to entirely redefine ILPs and turn them into something really worthwhile that students and tutors valued and found fun.

"Both tutors and students can access ILP online, anywhere and anytime. Because online activity is in tune with how students work and communicate they will make much more use of their ILPs."

The company launched the product at the Association of College's NILTA e-learning conference in Leeds last week.
