Cengage Learning, the second-largest higher education publisher in the U.S., on Tuesday announced it has formed a partnership with Knewton to provide adaptive learning technology in a handful of its products. Cengage will use Knewton technology in the company's MindTap platform, an interactive textbook reader. The technology will first appear in the management and sociology disciplines, a Knewton spokesman said.
The partnership is the latest in a series for Knewton, which provides its technology to publishers such as Cambridge University Press  and Pearson . Cengage is in the midst of restructuring after the company filed for bankruptcy protection in July .
