We've been a leader in the education industry for 25 years and currently serve more than 14 million users in over 200 countries and territories around the world. Our technology for digital materials supports and engages students and makes it easier to:

  • Deliver and distribute a variety of online learning experiences to increase engagement and generate revenue
  • Increase your store’s efficiency and impact
  • Provide access to digital content across any device, when and how learners need it, online and offline
