Pearson is today launching a student app that will provide tools to use with their Pearson books.
The app, according to Pearson, “will fundamentally change the way students access and experience college textbooks” by providing students with a range of tools that will allow them to highlight sections of the textbooks, listen to audio versions, create note cards and take quizzes.
The model will also represent a new source of revenue for Pearson. Students will pay what Pearson calls “budget-friendly” sums for access to the app:
$9.99 per month for one Pearson ebook
$14.99 per month for access to 1,500 Pearson ebooks.
