Today Pearson announced a collaboration with Microsoft Corp. to create new applications and advance a digital education model. The first collaboration between the two companies will combine Pearson’s Common Core System of Courses with the Windows 8 touchscreen environment.

In addition, iLit, Pearson’s core reading program aimed at closing the adolescent literacy gap, will be optimized for the Windows 8 platform.

A Windows 8 app will also be developed for Pearson’s core and supplemental eText titles. In addition, Pearson’s TestNav 8 assessment app will support Internet Explorer 11.

The Pearson solutions on the Windows platform will be available for use by schools in the 2014-2015 school year.
