Pearson, Big Think Partner To Bring Business Videos to Universities


Pearson has partnered with Big Think to make the latter's curated video collections available to educators and students at higher education institutions.

As part of the partnership, Pearson will offer educators licenses "licenses to Big Think’s curated collection of" 15,000 "videos that are designed to develop interpersonal skills and core competencies business leaders need to achieve success," according to a news release.

Students will receive a unique login that will grant access to the collections through a Pearson-Big Think portal. Institutions will also be able to create a customized solution with access to videos designed to align with their learning objectives.

"The goal of producing these highly informative videos is to convey an ideas' value as efficiently and effectively as possible to students, so that they have time to explore and absorb more videos in a shorter amount of time," said Victoria Rachel Montgomery Brown, co-founder and CEO of Big Think, in a prepared statement. "Our partnership with Pearson, a proven provider of high quality learning content, will enable us to reach more students at institutions across the country and empower them with the knowledge they need to succeed in their careers."
