Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Makes 3 Online Curricula Available Via Trunity ELearning Platform

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) has partnered with Trunity to make three digital curricula available online and off through the Trunity e-Learning Platform.

Holt McDougal Physics, Holt McDougal Chemistry and ScienceFusion will all be available through the platform beginning September 10, following a year-long pilot at the Institute of Applied Technology in the United Arab Emirates.

"Utilizing Trunity's powerful content management capabilities, HMH's educational content can be organized to support numerous curriculum designs and requirements while incorporating a variety of rich, dynamic media such as videos, animations and interactive lessons," according to a news release. "Students on the platform are also able to collaborate in an engaging, social learning environment with administrators and educators, enabling greater interaction and an enhanced individual learning experience."

Students will be able to access the customizable curricula offline from multiple devices by downloading individual chapters, interactive resources and assignments.

"Access to strong educational content is one of the most powerful tools we have for overcoming economic and social challenges," said Tim Cannon, executive vice president of international markets and global strategic alliances at HMH, in a prepared statement. "Our partnership with Trunity allows us to offer our dynamic, interactive digital content to customers in both on- and offline environments, which is particularly important in countries where students may not have reliable internet access."
