Pearson owns educational media brands including Addison-Wesley, BBC Active, Bug Club, eCollege, Fronter, Longman, MyEnglishLab, Penguin Readers, Smarthinking, Prentice Hall, Poptropica and Financial Times Press. Pearson is part of Pearson PLC, which also owns the Financial Times. It was created in 1998 when Pearson PLC purchased the education division of Simon & Schuster from Viacom and merged it with its own education division, Addison-Wesley Longman to form Pearson Education. Pearson Education was rebranded to Pearson in 2011, and split into an International and a North American division.) {}
