Tailored for students, articles include embedded multimedia and related resources to engage students, expanded biographies, and supplemental tools to support cross-curricular studies.
NEW! Articles in Student now offer users the ability to change the font to OpenDyslexic. The OpenDyslexic font is designed to help students recognise letters by preventing them from flipping and swapping while reading. This new option is available in the tools menu on all articles.

NEW! Interactive Media. From the Sydney Opera House to exploring Machu Picchu, we have enriched our images—both static and 360-degree photos—with “hotspots” that lead to fun facts, related articles, photo galleries, videos, audio clips, maps, and more. The 360-degree photos work with visual reality headsets.
