Pearson, the world's leading learning company, announced the launch of a new tablet-based education solution for schools in India.

The MX Touch platform will give a greater number of school children access to more effective personalised and collaborative digital learning with rich digital content, 3D animations, quizzes and videos.

MX Touch is compliant with the school syllabus and comes bundled with tablets at a variety of prices to ensure it is affordable and accessible by the broadest possible cross section of students.

While supporting the core syllabus, the service will also help promote ICT in school education in India by familiarising students with the latest learning technology.

The product also allows parents to monitor the academic progress of their children more accurately than ever before with easy access to assignments, difficult lessons covered during school hours and archived assessments and tests, said the company.

MX Touch was launched in India by Genevieve Shore - Chief Information Officer and Director of Digital Strategy for Pearson, with iconic cricketer Anil Kumble, who has a long standing association with the company.

Speaking at the launch, Shore said: "The MX Touch is a great example of how Pearson is harnessing technology to improve the learning opportunities and outcomes of school children in India. We believe that if our products and services can help learning flourish, so will people."

MX Touch will be available in three versions: MX Touch-ActiveTouch, MX Touch-DigitALly and MX Touch-Ultimate.

MX Touch variants are available in 7 and 10 inch tablets from the company's preferred tablet manufacturers.
