Cengage Learning announced an expanded partnership with the National Geographic Society through which it will acquire the National Geographic Society's digital and print school publishing unit. The new agreement also allows Cengage Learning a wider use of the National Geographic Society brand and content, including images, video, and articles.
With the acquisition, Cengage will acquire the National Geographic Science series, which is a core elementary science curriculum, as well as the National Geographic Explorer! magazines and Hampton Brown's literacy and language programs. National Geographic and Cengage Learning have partnered to produce education materials for the global market since 2007.
