    Pearson pursues return to growth with digital courses

    British education publisher Pearson (PSON.L) said it was on track to return to underlying profit growth this year after demand for digital course material in the United States helped it report slightly better-than-expected first-half results. Shares in the 174-year-old group were up 3 percent in early trading as Pearson, which earns around 80 percent of its income in the second half, said its transformation to a digital provider was taking shape. The company has been through a tumultuous few years, with Chief Executive John Fallon forced to cut thousands of jobs and sell assets such as the Financial Times newspaper to fund a move into ebooks, rental schemes and online courses.
