Enabling partners and publishers to build custom reading-based learning experiences

Our Platform, Your Experience

With LearnKit, we have unbundled our best-in-class VitalSource Bookshelf platform. Serving millions of students and billions of textbook pages each year, LearnKit is robust, scalable, and flexible, making it easy to take what we have already accomplished and make it your own.


Our software developer kit allows publisher and platform developer teams to take advantage of Bookshelf’s key strengths, but create a custom look and feel to best serve their customers. Already have a digital reading platform? Drop in specific Bookshelf features from LearnKit.
