At Pearson, we take learning personally. Our courses and resources are available as books, eTexts and online, helping people learn whatever, wherever and however they choose.

Pearson Custom works for educators. We partner with you to build course-specific materials, designed to facilitate student success. We open the door to a wealth of content and technology and walk you through the process of selecting or creating the custom resources to meet your course goals.

Is it complicated and time consuming?

We walk you through the creation of your customised learning resource step-by-step, managing every aspect of its design right through to final delivery. The result is a learning resource that gives you everything you need to engage your students with relevant material.

What about an eText?

Your customised resource can be made available as an eText, a printed book or a combination of both, to suit the mutual needs of you and your students.

Is it possible to include my own course materials?

Yes, Pearson Custom allows you to incorporate your own course notes into the customised product and make them available to your students.

Cover Gallery

Should you decide to use Pearson to publish your own custom book, we have a number of covers to choose from in our cover gallery. Some points to consider when choosing your cover are:  

  • The cover design should appeal visually to you and your students
  • The cover design should appropriately reflect the content of your custom book - for example, if you are publishing a humanities title, steer away from designs with a finance focus.
  • We can customise any cover with images that you wish to provide, to enhance and personalise your book to your course.
