"Actively Learn offers seemingly boundless options for what students can do inside a text: adjust, annotate, edit, share, and collaborate. It's the kind of interactive tool that, if used well, can open up some deep, high-quality communication among teachers and students alike."

Common Sense Education Review

"I was impressed. I've been in public education for 20 years, and I don't say that often. What we were hearing from teachers was, 'I would really hate to be without this next year.'"

Christy Stanley

Director of Humanities and Healthful Living,
Chapel Hill-Carrboro City school district

"This is probably one of the best products I've seen. The way the content is interspersed with standards-oriented questioning makes it extremely effective. It is definitely a tool that aids both the teacher and the student."
