As technology continues to evolve and amaze, it has become ever more enmeshed in our lives. So it’s no surprise that educators and learners now expect, and need, educational technology that performs as well as the other technology they use every day. Leveraging powerful mobile technology, we at Pearson created REVEL™ to drive student engagement by delivering interactive learning opportunities throughout students’ day-to-day routines.
Fully digital and highly engaging, REVEL replaces the textbook and gives students everything they need for the course. REVEL is an interactive learning environment that seamlessly blends authors’ narrative, media, and assessment, enabling students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience.
The REVEL mobile app syncs work across smartphone, tablet, and laptop so students can read, learn, and complete assignments as they wish — anytime and anywhere. Drawing upon learning-science research around the benefits of active and constructive engagement with concepts, REVEL integrates videos and interactive content throughout, resulting in improved understanding and knowledge retention. And quizzes integrated throughout digital text content give students opportunities to practice and check their mastery without breaking stride in the learning experience.
Working across a range of devices, and incorporating engaging media throughout, REVEL enables students to meet the expectations for their course within the context of their very busy lives. By meeting teachers and students on their terms, Pearson has created digital learning technology uniquely suited to our increasingly digital world.

Wall Street English
Wall Street English is a global English language school for adults. It offers a learning experience that is effective, flexible, and entertaining to help motivate learners so they stay on track to achieve their language goals.
Using a blended Learning methodology for language acquisition, Wall Street English students learn the natural way, much as people learn their first language. With each lesson learners listen, repeat, speak, read, and write English. Wall Street English learners begin communicating in English from their first lesson.
The Wall Street English curriculum was built using the Global Scale of English Learning Objectives, a globally recognized standard in language education. It helps learners understand what language and skills they will learn in each lesson and how far they have to go in their course in order to achieve their goals.
In addition to their core course, which includes interactive lessons and small group classes, learners can experience a near immersion experience in their state of the art centers where only English is spoken. Centers often host social activities where people can practice speaking English in a fun environment. Learners can join a global online community where they can track their progress, get extra practice, and connect with teachers and learners from around the world.
Wall Street English opened their first center in 1972 and have a well-established international brand. The business operates under a franchise model and has a growing global footprint with over 400 language centers in 28 countries.
Online Program Management
As the global economy and the student population change, it’s clear we need new ways for people to access higher education.
Nearly 40% of employers can’t fill their vacancies. By 2020, an estimated 65% percent of jobs will require a postsecondary degree but only 40% of people currently have one.
The average student age is now 27.5, with 40% percent of attending part-time and the majority (75% percent) juggling families and jobs while in school.
In-person schooling isn’t practical for everyone. Saddled with other responsibilities, today’s student needs a more flexible way to obtain an education. With online education, we can reach people where they are and in a way that suits their lifestyle or career needs.
Online learning is perfect for reskilling people for new jobs or careers, fulfilling the need for lifelong learning and helping people make progress in their lives.
Colleges and universities of all sizes partner with Pearson to extend the reach of their degree programs, so students can earn degrees more easily and in ways that better fit their needs.
Students are stretched with family, career and financial commitments. That’s why we are committed to providing flexible degree choices and high touch support services that help them succeed.
Our online program management services help extend the reach of colleges and universities in the US and, increasingly worldwide. We have partnered with 40+ institutions in the US and launched partnerships in markets such as Australia and the UK.
Pearson is the UK's largest awarding body, offering both academic and vocational qualifications. We are in the process of updating and redeveloping these qualifications, to ensure that they continue to deliver the knowledge, skills and understanding that students need to prepare for their chosen career or next step in education. This work has been overseen by a panel of international teachers, education reformers and assessment experts, making sure that all our qualifications are proven passports to progression.
Pearson Edexcel is one of the three big UK exam boards which sets and marks GCSE and A level exams, usually taken at ages 16 and 18 respectively:
- GCSEs (General Certificates of Secondary Education) are the main qualifications taken by students at school-leaving age in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Our GCSEs are available in over 40 subjects.
- Our A levels give students the chance to develop intellectually as they explore a subject in greater depth.
Pearson's BTECs provide specialist, work-related learning across a range of sectors, in nearly 40 subjects at three different levels. Delivering the knowledge, skills and understanding students need to prepare for their chosen career, BTECs offer progression to higher or further education or into employment.
Alongside A levels, BTECs are the most widely recognised qualification for admission to higher education (HE) - around one in four of all students starting HE courses in England have achieved a BTEC National qualification.
International versions of GCSEs, A levels and BTECs are taken in nearly 60 countries worldwide.
Pearson also offers apprenticeships across a wide range of career paths.
Pearson’s comprehensive approach to assessment includes an innovative online test delivery solution. TestNav delivers millions of secure, high-stakes tests in K-12 schools every year.
TestNav is Pearson’s cloud-based test delivery platform. Secure, reliable, and scalable, TestNav offers an engaging and interactive testing experience to today's students, who learn and play in a digital environment. Media-rich, technology-enhanced items better reflect the dynamic exchange of information in the classroom and more accurately assess all that students know and can do.
