McGraw-Hill Education, one of the nation’s largest K-12 educational publishers, has created a new division devoted solely to digital learning programs for the K-12 market.

McGraw-Hill Digital Learning will focus on the development of effective K-12 technology-based programs that improve teaching and learning. The new division will allow McGraw-Hill Education to expand its existing education technology initiatives as well as increase the number of digital product offerings, the company said.

Brad Onken, a 13-year veteran at McGraw-Hill Education and previously vice president of marketing for Glencoe/McGraw-Hill, has been named president of the new division. Onken began his professional career as a social studies teacher and has experience in editing, marketing, and sales of educational materials in print and digital formats, according to the company.
