In light of public health developments and campus closures due to coronavirus, Cognella is committed to providing instructors and students with every possible opportunity for them to stay safe and succeed.

First and foremost, we’re well prepared to continue delivering learning materials to students. The majority of our titles are available in ebook format via the Cognella Student Store (, allowing students to immediately access course content on their preferred device.

Students who order print materials from the Student Store receive discounted publisher-direct pricing and an immediate 30% digital download so they can successfully complete readings and assignments while their materials are in transit.

We’re also dedicated to helping instructors as they transition their courses to remote and online learning environments. We have an experienced e-learning team in our Cognella Active Learning division. We’re happy to speak with instructors to see if there are services we can provide to ease this transition and help plan for the future.

If you’d like to speak to our team about e-learning possibilities or alternative ways we may be able to help, please fill out our contact form, and a Cognella team member will be in touch with you as soon as possible.

From all of us at Cognella, stay safe and be well.
