“Campus Discussions is just the latest example of our commitment to creating a single, comprehensive solution for our customers,” says Charlie Kratsch, Infinite Campus Founder and CEO. “Our goal is to integrate the best features of a learning management system (LMS) directly into our student information system (SIS) and offer these tools at no additional cost.”
Part of a suite of LMS features collectively known as Campus Instruction, Discussions allows Infinite Campus to take an even more central role in daily classroom activities. Deep integration with the entire Infinite Campus platform means teachers can create and moderate online Discussions seamlessly within their Campus Planner or Grade Book and have the option to let parents view their student’s posts via the Campus Portal.

Customizable moderation tools ensure the privacy and safety of all users.
Online and personalized learning is the next big evolution happening in K12 education,” continues Kratsch. “With Discussions and the other LMS features being added to Campus Instruction, we’re connecting teachers, parents and students to some of the most advanced educational technology out there.”
