IXL Learning, a leading educational technology company, has announced its acquisition of Teachers Pay Teachers, the world’s largest online marketplace for teacher-created educational resources. The acquisition will help IXL expand its offerings for teachers and students, as well as increase its reach in the K-12 education market.

We look forward to working together to provide even more tools and resources to educators around the world.”
The acquisition also presents an opportunity for Teachers Pay Teachers to grow its user base and continue to support educators in new and innovative ways. “IXL Learning has a strong track record of providing effective and engaging educational tools to students,” said the CEO of Teachers Pay Teachers. “Together, we can help even more educators find the resources they need to create dynamic and effective learning experiences for their students.”
Overall, the acquisition of Teachers Pay Teachers by IXL Learning highlights the growing importance of educational technology and the role it plays in supporting teachers and students. With the integration of Teachers Pay Teachers’ resources and community into IXL Learning’s offerings, educators will have access to even more tools and materials to help them support student learning and achieve positive outcomes.
