Educational publishing is being swept by the digital revolution. For our specialist imprints, that means creating products that would be unthinkable using traditional media, but it also entails making learning materials increasingly more accessible, in the firm belief that everyone should have access to the best tools for learning and teaching.
Mondadori Education and Rizzoli Education, the Group’s school textbooks producers, encourage facilitated, inclusive and collaborative learning in all the titles in their catalogue through the select use of graphic layouts and specific methods to help students develop effective study methods and build their skills.
The digital offerings of the two educational arms of the Mondadori Group were combined to create HUB Scuola, a digital learning platform launched in September 2017, which brings together into the one environment the products and tools of the two publishers. Simple, free, innovative: Easy to use, free-of-charge and innovative, HUB Scuola is designed to meet the need for more collaborative, digital and inclusive learning in schools. It is the richest digital learning platform in Italy, featuring authored content, innovative services, and next-generation features to expand teaching programmes and encourage a more stimulating, multimedia learning experience. A single password is all it takes to unlock the digital offering of the two publishers: users can enter either their Mondadori Education credentials or their Rizzoli Education credentials to login and access all their books and digital content. HUB Scuola brings together the most advanced digital tools and the best of the educational offering of the two publishers in a single digital environment, which has been optimized as a whole for use on any device.
In 2018 the platform was enhanced by two new solutions: HUB test, designed for teachers to prepare tests and for students to practice, and HUB Smart, the app to use digital content directly on mobile devices.
Most of the books in the Mondadori Education catalogue are available for reproduction for blind or visually impaired students or those with particular learning disabilities.
Thanks to the agreements signed by Mondadori Education with the relevant associations (“Regina Margherita” Non-Profit Italian Library for the Blind and the Digital Library of the Italian Dyslexia Association), Braille or “talking” versions (digital or on CDROM) of the books can be requested.
