Pearson Opens Up Wealth of Education Content to App Developers

Educational publisher Pearson has viagraonline-4betterlife now opened up its library of image and classic titles to app viagra online developers, offering a wealth of images and content to be used for educational apps and services. Via its API program Plug & Play, the company has released the dkimages API which includes a library of 90,000 images and viagra online a Penguin Classics API which features 48 well-known classic literature titles.

A quick personal note here: I once worked for a small-time publishing company, and securing permissions to reprint Pearson content, especially from Penquin Classics was like pulling teeth. Pearson had a notoriously strong grip over its content, which is understandable given its large clout in the education industry. I’m not saying their strong grip is a bad thing, but it is encouraging to see the company loosen up a bit and offer content to app developers looking to provide innovative solutions for educators and students.

Diana Stepner, Head of Future Technologies at Pearson, said that developers have frequently requested both data sets—kind of like my old company frequently did—and that Pearson was “excited to see what cialis dosage 15 mg fantastic new apps and services developers had in mind.”

The company has also updated its Plug & Play website to make it easier for developers to begin using the pharmacyonline4better APIs.

Well, app developers? What are you waiting for? You’ve got work to do and you’ve now got the tools viagra online to do it, so get going!

    Awesome. Now, what if a developer took the Pearson API and combined it with the LearnSprout API to pull grades, attendance, assignments and so on. My imagination is running wild, but how cool would it be if an app was able to analyze real-time grades and point the student or parent directly to Pearson content that supported the student’s learning?
