Elsevier Launches Digital Learning Platform for Health Science Education: Pageburst

Elsevier ( announced the launch of Pageburst (, an interactive digital learning platform for Elsevier health science education content. The company says Pageburst surpasses existing ebook platforms because it is designed for the way students learn, with features such as integrated multimedia, text-to-speech, social networking tools, and an integrated instructor grade book. The Pageburst platform is designed specifically for nursing and health professions students in North America who require anytime/anywhere access to course material and utilize texts as reference guides throughout their careers.

Pageburst is built upon easy-to-use and recognizable software tools that allow painless implementation and support for health science educators, students, and practitioners seeking superior teaching, learning, and clinical outcomes. The platform enables users to master course content quickly and easily by working with their entire collection of Elsevier health science titles in text, video, and audio formats and by collaborating online with faculty and classmates within the context of the content.

Elsevier's community of health education experts designed Pageburst to enhance the way health profession students think, learn, and study. For example, students will be able to create personalized study guides and instantly link content within the text to expert definitions and descriptions in dictionaries and other Elsevier reference works. They will also be able to view a video or animation within the context of applicable textbook content to help clarify complex concepts. Additionally, students can increase retention and easily learn terms that look alike, sound alike, or are hard to pronounce by clicking a button to hear the correct pronunciation and meaning.

Pageburst is web-based, so it can be accessed anytime on any device with a supported web browser. Students can also download their content to their desktop or laptop computers to study offline. More than 550 of Elsevier's most-used book titles are available on the platform, including Potter's Fundamentals of Nursing, Chabner's The Language of Medicine, and Lewis' Medical-Surgical Nursing.
