One of the leading educational publishers in Australia, Macmillan Education Australia (MEA), has joined with LearningField to provide their digital textbooks across Years 7–12. MEA will be a welcome addition to the already impressive list of publishers who have partnered with LearningField.
Jacinta Eales, a Year 7 teacher at North Geelong Secondary College said, “LearningField is very accessible and gives us a wide range of texts to choose from. Having Macmillan Education Australia on board will broaden that range even further which is going to be great. I’m looking forward to having a look through their resources. LearningField in general is great for differentiation in the classroom.” Joe Magee from St Patrick’s College in Ballarat agreed, saying, “With the addition of Macmillan’s broad ranging and rich resources, LearningField offers something for a diverse range of English classes.”
Peter Saffin, Managing Director of MEA, described his motivation for joining as follows: “Joining LearningField allows us to continue to offer our highly desired content to those schools that use LearningField as their core content delivery system. Working with LearningField, who offer an easy-to-use solution that meets school needs, will strengthen our ability to deliver to the market in the future.”
We are delighted to welcome Macmillan Education Australia to LearningField. MEA have many sought after titles for the Australian Curriculum and NSW Australian Curriculum, as well as for the VCE, which will further expand the choice available in a LearningField subscription.
This is our second major addition to the catalogue in a fortnight. As an initiative of the not-for-profit Copyright Agency, LearningField is succeeding in our mission to give textbook publishers of all sizes another way to distribute their digital content.
Many thanks to Peter Saffin and the team at MEA – we are very much looking forward to working with you.
