Follett Partners With Cengage’s National Geographic Learning

Partnership creates one-stop shop for Cengage’s premier K-12 product lines

MCHENRY, IL, Sep 23, 2015Follett has partnered with National Geographic Learning (NGL), part of Cengage Learning, to provide its customers with convenient access to NGL’s catalog of textbooks and supplemental materials in both print and digital form. NGL is the K-12 brand for Cengage Learning – a leading educational content, technology, and services company – following Cengage’s acquisition of National Geographic School Publishing.

Drawing on the real-world accounts of National Geographic explorers, scientists, writers and photographers, NGL offers a wide range of programs that support Pre-K to AP instructors and engage students with vibrant content and digital learning tools. Stunning National Geographic photography, video, and illustrations are all a hallmark of NGL content.

“We create learning materials that bring the world to the classroom, and now this partnership allows Follett to provide schools with personalized materials to fit their needs,” said Vincent Grosso, senior vice president, NGL. “When the right materials are in place, teachers can focus on teaching and students get the best learning experience.”

NGL’s engaging K-12 textbooks feature Career and Technical Education and Advanced, Honors and Electives programs including, “The American Pageant” (Kennedy/Cohen); “Precalculus with Limits: A Graphing Approach” (Larson); “American Government: Institutions and Policies” (Wilson/Dilulio/Bose); and “World of Chemistry” (Zumdahl/Zumdahl/DeCoste).

 “We are thrilled to partner with National Geographic Learning/Cengage because they understand learning evolves when students are engaged with their course materials,” said Nader Qaimari, senior vice president of content services and solutions, who joined Follett last year from Cengage Learning’s Gale business. “By allowing access to NGL’s content in both digital and print formats, customers are able to further rely on Follett to round out their curricular needs with the most appropriate content in its most convenient form.”
