Discovery Education: Content Management Best Practices

Discovery Education: Content Management Best Practices

Northplains’ Unify system supports our content management strategy, giving us the power, flexibility, and speed we need, whether that’s around content creation, re-versioning or localization of material.
– Harley Richardson, Director of Design and Development, Discovery Education

Discovery Education, formerly Espresso Education, is one of the world’s leading providers of digitally-based educational materials. They provide digital content including video, images and text to more than half of the United Kingdom’s primary schools, as well as Sweden, Canada, the United States and the Middle East. Discovery provides more than just digital content; they provide relevant content that has been tailored with respect to culture and religion. As you can imagine, all of this translates into hundreds of thousands of assets, and a need for a robust and flexible content management system (CMS).

Together, Discovery Education and Northplains created a single, organisation-wide content management platform to support the flexible and efficient publishing of new content, while providing easy access to archived content to be repurposed. The new system also provides clarity around rights management, to help Discovery Education stay compliant. Download the case study to find out how they did it.
