Bring students together
in digital text.

Subtext is your doorway to digital reading. Annotate. Collaborate. Motivate.

An eReading program for K12 schools, Subtext is an iOS app that brings reading to the digital world where today's students live, play, and learn. When educators embed questions, discussion prompts, polls, videos, and web links in digital text, students begin to read closely and with purpose. Teachers call Subtext a "game-changer" for its ability to promote collaborative 21st Century learning while teaching students the skills they'll need to be successful in college and careers.
