Noordhoff Uitgevers has acquired DigiTaalbedrijf, an e-learning company in the Netherlands.
By joining forces both parties aim to broaden and strengthen their online offer for (higher) education. Combining Noordhoff’s broad experience and extensive network with DigiTaalbedrijf’s successful online platform will pave the way for a full range of adaptive online offerings.
DigiTaalbedrijf develops and markets high-quality e-learning programs for higher education and online self-study and assessment learning programs enabling students to further improve their skills. The company also offers students workshops and training to help them improve their exam results. These tools solve deficiencies in higher education and provide students with an equal, firm basis for a successful study. Their fully digital adaptive offering will complement and enhance Noordhoff’s personalized learning strategy.
Marchien van Doorn, Noordhoff’s CEO: “DigiTaalbedrijf’s activities, expertise and products fit well with our strategy to decrease the student drop-out rate and increase study success with our educational software and assessments. With this combination of innovative offerings and broad expertise we expect to become an even more important player in the (higher) education market.”
As of today DigiTaalbedrijf’s marketing and sales organization will be linked to Noordhoff Uitgevers. The rest of the company will be integrated gradually over the next year.
