April 15, 2019
Learn It Live now on the RBdigital platform which offers the broadest array of content types available to library patrons and students in a single app
Landover, MD, April 15, 2019—Recorded Books, an RBmedia company, today announced the addition of Learn It Live to the RBdigital platform. Learn it Live anchors a new health and wellness offering exclusively available on RBdigital to library patrons.
Learn It Live offers interactive, live video courses and hundreds of recorded classes on health and wellness, spirituality, career development, and more. This unique service allows patrons to interact with top authors and expert instructors from around the world. Topics include cooking, nutrition, child care, financial wellness, diabetes prevention, fitness, yoga, mindfulness, meditation, and stress reduction.
“Health and wellness is an incredibly popular content category so we are excited to offer Learn it Live to library patrons as well as students at colleges and universities,” said John Shea, Chief Product and Marketing Officer of RBmedia. “We will continue to expand our RBdigital content in this and other areas to meet the evolving needs of our customers and their user bases.”
Learn it Live joins the RBdigital Unlimited Video service which provides patrons unlimited access during any seven-day period, rather than offering a pay-per-lesson model. RBdigital’s innovative pricing model enables library patrons to binge-watch videos the same way they do on subscription streaming video services like Netflix—saving libraries up to 75% over other library vendors.
Learn It Live joins an ever-increasing number of unlimited video services available on RBdigital, including:
- Acorn TV—World-class mysteries, dramas, and comedies from Britain and beyond
- The Great Courses Library Collection—Hundreds of courses covering a wide variety of topics taught by the world’s top professors
- IndieFlix—Award-winning comedies, documentaries, drama, animation, shorts, and classic TV
- Stingray Qello—The world’s largest collection of full-length concert films and music documentaries
- Pongalo—The largest collection of Spanish-language telenovelas and translated movies
- Method Test Prep—A comprehensive, self-paced ACT and SAT prep program
With the addition of Learn It Live, Recorded Books now provides 14 content types via the RBdigital app—the broadest array available in the industry—with more unlimited video services coming soon.
