High-Quality Virtual Classroom Technology

We believe educational technology works best when it makes learning engaging and meaningful. That’s why we develop many of our own innovative and interactive virtual tools and resources.

Pearson Online Classroom (formally known as Connexus®) is where virtual learning takes place. Students can access a rigorous curriculum, complete assignments, interact with teachers, and collaborate with peers from across the world. It includes everything families will need to structure their child’s education, help them advance academically, and keep them engaged in a safe learning space.

Connecting Students—Creating an Inclusive and Engaging Online Community

Pearson Online Academy is all about making connections—not just to academics, but also to other students and families. Here are some of the ways that Pearson Online Academy students regularly communicate with others in the virtual learning community:

  • Interact with teachers and classmates in real-time, online classrooms.
  • Receive one-on-one support from caring teachers via telephone, email, and online chats.
  • Share their interests with other Pearson Online Academy students across the world through secure message boards, class projects, and student socialization opportunities.

Our diverse online clubs* for elementary students through high school provide all our students with the opportunity to deepen their learning and engagement in subjects of interest while forging friendships with students around the globe. When students join our clubs, they interact with a diverse student body. Pearson Online Academy currently serves students in over 75 countries and all 50 states, and nearly 20% of the student population lives internationally. Bringing students together, sparking their passions, and pointing them toward a successful future are what these student engagement activities are all about.
