Pearson recently announced the launch of a new tablet-based education solution for schools in India. The ‘MX Touch’ platform will give students access to more effective personalised and collaborative digital learning with rich digital content, 3D animations, quizzes, and videos. It is compliant with the school syllabus and comes bundled with tablets at a variety of prices to ensure it is affordable and accessible by the broadest possible cross-section of students. While supporting the core syllabus, the service will also help promote Information Communication Technology in the Indian school education by familiarising students with the latest learning technology. The product also allows parents to monitor the academic progress of their children more accurately than ever before with easy access to assignments, difficult lessons covered during school hours and archived assessments and tests.
