Pearson, the world’s leading learning company, is today publishing a new range of iBooks textbooks in the UK, Australia and Canada. The books, designed for a range of different students, are available today on the iBookstore.

The new titles include some of Pearson’s bestselling textbooks re-imagined for the iPad and brought to life with engaging video, audio, assessment, interactive images and 3D animations.

In Australia, four new titles for Grade 8 include Pearson: History, Pearson: Science, Pearson: English and Pearson: Maths. Pearson: Maths will be available by the end of 2012. These iBooks textbooks feature beautiful illustrations, videos that can be viewed on a page or as full screen demonstration, chapter reviews and interactive material to help bring the subject to life.

In the UK, Revise Edexcel GCSE Maths for secondary students will include 20 tutorial videos, quizzes and a puzzle game where you have to build 3D structures that match plan and elevation views. Anatomy and Physiology for Beauty Therapy includes high quality colour illustrations, photography and videos alongside interactive knowledge and progress checks.

Previously released science titles from the US market will be available in Canada, including Miller & Levine Biology. One of several high school multimedia texts, it includes vibrant colour interactive pages and illustrations, animations, content, video and photos to help students explore their subject.

Genevieve Shore, Pearson’s CIO and director of digital strategy, said,“We’re delighted to be able to make our interactive textbooks available to a bigger global audience. Our tablet-using students consistently ask for richer, more engaging interactive books and textbooks, and we’ve certainly delivered that in the shape of the illustrations, photography, videos, puzzles and quizzes that really bring learning to life for our readers.”
