Britannica Digital Learning

Going beyond...

Our passion is - and always has been - bringing high quality, reliable and accessible learning resources to people all over the world.

Many people know us as the publisher of those big multi-volume encyclopaedias that have been a global source of joy and learning since 1768. These days we've moved into the 21st Century, but that same, invaluable content, updated daily with videos, images, and other learning aids, can be found in a digital form in a variety of online products designed for learners of all ages.

We want to empower learners in their education, by providing trusted content and information that they can rely on. For 250 years we've collaborated with experts, scholars, educators, designers and specialists as well as our team of over 100 editors, who rigorously review all content to combine together and produce learning products that we believe are critical to providing a reliable, useful and enjoyable learning experience.

We work closely with schools, parents and educators, designing products for the modern-day classroom and home learning environments. Our resources can be accessed online from any device, meaning that we're able to provide support wherever students need it.
