Our mission is to help people make progress through access to better learning.  We believe that learning opens up opportunities, creating fulfilling careers and better lives.


Driving Access, Affordability & Achievement with Pearson

Most educators agree that students who don’t have access to required course materials on the first day of class are at a disadvantage. And yet, large numbers of students opt out of buying course materials for the first day of class citing cost as a barrier. Working together with institutional leaders, we’re putting innovative digital course materials delivery models in place that simplify getting students access to the materials they need from the very first day of class while improving affordability and driving achievement:

  • Transforming Affordability: Our digital delivery models help control the overall cost of education for students by providing highly favorable course materials pricing directly to the institution.
  • Transforming Access: Digital delivery of course materials levels the playing field by ensuring all students have access to required learning materials on or before the first day of class through collaboration with the institution and all of their preferred distribution partners.
  • Transforming Achievement: By giving faculty the ability to make better informed choices among best-in-class content, delivering content in a format that personalizes learning and increases engagement, and enabling data-informed learning insights that can inform and improve instruction, digital course materials delivery models enable innovation in teaching and learning.
