“Our goal is to make students more efficient using digital technology that is intuitive and works with their study habits,” says Nicole Pinard, Senior Vice President, XanEdu Publishing, Inc. “We’re taking the complexity out of personalized content by supporting professors’ desire to integrate publisher-neutral content such as journal articles, textbook chapters, video, cases, and more into a single, easy-to-use platform for students. It’s a win-win for everyone — content chosen by professors in a digital form preferred by students. And, that’s just the beginning… we are now piloting enhancements for professors.”

The XanEdu iPad app is part of the XanEdu Folio-X digital learning platform.
