A brief history
Kortext was founded in 2013 with a purpose to empower the next generation of difference-makers through teaching and learning. In a little over five years we became the UK’s leading personal learning platform and supplier of digital textbooks. We are continuing to see large-scale growth as the need for online teaching and learning increases rapidly. Now working with 4,000+ publishers including Pearson, McGraw Hill, Wiley and Oxford University Press, we supply over 2 million digital books to students in 80 countries around the world. Headquartered in Bournemouth, UK, our global team work with universities and governments to support better access to educational content and more effective teaching and learning.
Why do we do what we do?
Founded on the concept that students and universities wanted access to their textbooks and other relevant content in digital form as easily as possible we set out to deliver.
Through Kortext, universities across the world are now providing an enhanced learning experience and equipping students with the digital resources for their courses from day one! This ensures consistency of experience and equality of access and opportunity, leaving no student behind.
The University of Middlesex was cited in the TEF awards, which read: “The provision by the University of an excellent range of physical and digital resources including an e-textbook scheme, which has resulted in substantially increased student satisfaction…”
Others such as the University of Manchester, have also adopted schemes to improve the student experience, deliver equality of access and help students maximise their potential.
The difference we make
Kortext is used by universities to deliver course texts to students around an aggregated, single bookshelf. The platform is powering universities' ability to deliver connected, world-class online learning environments. Through Kortext, universities across the world are now providing an enhanced learning experience and equipping students with the digital resources for their courses from day one!
