Flat World designs and enables personalized learning solutions that scale. Through Flat World Knowledge, our e-book publishing platform, over 1 million students have access to affordable, expertly authored textbooks used in over 44,000 courses and classrooms worldwide. Educators can choose one of 110 high quality, expertly-authored and peer-reviewed titles as well as customize it to fit their needs in our easy-to-use editing platform. And in partnership with leading postsecondary innovators, we accelerate major transformation initiatives in personalized learning that deliver breakthrough results in cost, access, career readiness, and lifelong learning.
In a flat world, we see access to personalized learning as an equalizer, not a differentiator. Our basis for differentiation will depend on our ability to create and adapt. This transformation is well underway and we are excited about the opportunity to work with many of the pioneers leading the way. Flat World is headquartered in Washington, D.C. and has an office in Midtown Manhattan.
