Deep, curated content

The Edwin Library is an evolving, searchable bank of evergreen, curriculum-linked content—a safe and accurate source of research for every student and educator. Edwin pulls from Nelson’s rich history of trusted educational content, complemented with curated third-party premium learning resources. All content is searchable by keyword, media type, and by local curriculum standards. Video, audio and interactive exercises supplement a deep library of written content. Students can always store learning content in the cloud—and on the device when away from an internet connection—so learning doesn’t have to stop.

Integrated note-taking and highlighting functionality keep students engaged. Built-in self-assessments facilitate autonomous learning and improved outcomes. Student progress and learning opportunities are coordinated with educator tools, and a robust recommendation engine encourages deeper exploration.
