About us

We've rebranded. Anspear was previously Pearson Publishing

Anspear is a technology and publishing business with over 25 years of experience.

We believe that learning should be flexible and affordable. Education and training should fit around people's busy lifestyles, and not be limited by timetables, lecture halls and conference rooms. With mobile learning, we are making this vision a reality for learners of all ages.

Technology - the nimbl plaftorm

Driven by a vision of smooth and professional learning experiences for mobile phones, we created our technology platform, which we call nimbl, in order to be at the forefront of the trend towards mobile learning. We use nimbl to publish our own educational products as well as to help other organisations provide transformative mobile learning courses to their customers around the world.

Today, Anspear's technology powers distance learning degrees, language learning, training, CPD and education support, and is used in a range of complex settings where flexible learning is key.

Our platform is set apart by its mobile-optimised design, consistent, interactive experience and wide range of quiz questions. It also has the benefit of powerful usage analytics, which help managers measure the impact of a mobile learning program.



As publishers and educators, our team has the skills and experience to offer more than just technology to those who use nimbl to power their learning programmes. Our editors and designers are skilled at adapting any content into mobile-optimised courses, ensuring all our partners' content is well edited, well designed and consistent in look and feel.

Anspear comes from an educational publishing pedigree. Since 1991 (as Pearson Publishing) Anspear has published over 1000 titles in print and digital format and is highly regarded in UK schools and colleges. Anspear has developed innovative learning programmes for hundreds of thousands of adult learners, and worked with (amongst others) the United Nations, the European Union, the University of Cambridge and Microsoft.

How it works

Today, Anspear focuses on specialist mobile learning products that it publishes using nimbl, its own mobile publishing technology. We have published over 250 mobile courses including curriculum support for vulnerable children in the UK and a growing library of professional development courses for education professionals. Powered by nimbl, Anspear's published products are improving educational outcomes across the United Kingdom.
