There’s no doubt that technology in the classroom provides unprecedented levels of access to learning materials, but we also know there is nothing worse than a teacher standing in front of a class with an online service not working.
We believe the most complicated of software solutions should feel simple – and this hasn’t been universally the case across all our readers in the past. So we’ve listened to what our customers have told us and made some changes that makes LearningField a service schools can rely on.
Key to this change is our partnership with VitalSource, with the world’s preferred textbook provider for educational institutions as well as most major Australian publishers. This means that when you login to LearningField, you are using a platform that has been used by more than 12 million students across more than 6,000 campuses in 200 countries worldwide. Using LearningField, any student can access the traditional print textbook weightlessly from any device they choose, from the broadest range of native readers, including a Chromebook reader.
Publishers have experienced this reliability for years. Every major publisher in Australia uses VitalSource with their tertiary customers and trusts them to reliably deliver their content to their students. So when we communicated a change to VitalSource, we received universally positive feedback. This is indicative of what publishers have told us:
“We support LearningField’s move to VitalSource and are excited about the improved user experience and how this will support the effective use of our content in Australian schools. We have used VitalSource in our Higher Education business for many years and have been impressed with the reliability of the service they have provided to customers there.”
– David Barnett Managing Director Pearson Australia
This reliability is also being proven in Australian schools now. Schools are now using our VitalSource powered service and experiencing the reliability seen in universities for years. Here’s some early feedback from Queensland:
“LearningField has improved immensely over the past few years and their new VitalSource partnership has delivered a robust platform that meets the needs of Lourdes Hill College.
I recommend you trial LearningField as a digital textbook solution and decide for yourself if LearningField is the solution for you”
– Barry Fitzpatrick, Head of ICT at Lourdes Hill
We’ve also taken this opportunity to go one step further. LearningField now works more seamlessly than ever before with three powerful new features.
