faith ward's curator insight, January 8, 2015 10:53 AM

The company's latest digital offering, REVEL, mixes text, interactive exercises, infographics, social features and video segments for students, who can use it on their mobile devices. And it gives faculty the means to track the time students spend on each reading assignment as well as their performance on assessments. The first release, which saw immediate adoption at 50 institutions this fall, addresses three general education courses: Introduction to Psychology; Introduction to Sociology; and Public Speaking and Communications. These are areas where neither Pearson nor its competitors were solving the main problems, according to Paul Corey, Pearson Higher Education's managing director: "What we've heard over and over again from students is, 'Have everything in one place. Don't make me go to three different products to get my whole out-of-class experience. And address the affordability issue.'"
