Britannica Digital Learning

Going beyond…

In a world where it is difficult to know what information to trust, we provide products that inspire confidence, with content on which people can rely. We do this, as we have done for decades, by collaborating with experts, scholars, educators, instructional designers and user-experience specialists; by subjecting their work to rigorous editorial review; and by combining it all into learning products that are useful, reliable and enjoyable.

We work closely with schools, parents and educators, designing products for the 21st-century classroom and today’s home learning environments. We’re a pioneer in digital education, and our products are marked by engaging and trustworthy content.

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. Although we no longer publish those printed volumes, 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.

Today Britannica publishes innovative online products, and e-books in all platforms and for all devices. Britannica is for everyone – for the second year student learning maths, the teacher explaining the laws of gravity, and the lifelong learner trying to understand the latest political crisis.
