Fronter phasing out

Kindly note that Fronter will be phasing out and will close in November 2020 due to its old functionalities which are not supported any longer by the provider. Hence you are encouraged to download any useful files by 30th October 2020. We recommend that you upload your files on One Drive to be easier for you to share with your students. Please find step-by-step instructions on how to download your files from Fronter here. Alternatively, you can also download the following presentation.

Ilearn email account

Please note that the Ilearn email account (name.surname@ilearn.edu.mt) will not be effected and this will still be used when Fronter is closed.

The way forward

My School and Microsoft Teams will complement each other to carry out any activity that you need both in class and for online teaching and learning. This includes taking attendance, recording assessment, sending announcements to parent and students, sending work to students, receiving students’ work, correcting work and giving feedback, communicating and more. Teleskola.mt is another useful platform to share resources with students, educators and parents. These platforms are already widely used by educators, school leaders, students and parents.
