New Reader for eBooks and Audiobooks
Here's the extra cool part...because it's an Overdrive product, Sora can link to both Adams 12 libraries and our local public libraries! I link to Anythink Libraries, Denver Public Libraries, and the High Plains Library District, too. And, I can search all of those plus Adams 12 with a single search. (The only downside is you can only search Juvenile and YA titles, so I keep Libby--another Overdrive app--for other titles.) Here's a direct link, but it's also in the menu on the library website. http://bit.ly/AD12eBooks

Students can also read and listen in their web browser through Sora.

While I purchase some books just for MRHS, the district purchases titles to share, too!

There are also iOS Apps. (Android is coming soon.) What's awesome about the apps is you can start on the computer and continue on the app (or vice versa). I created a video using the website with my own photos, and I recorded voiceover using my iPhone app. It's all saved in the cloud, so it was all there when I got back to my computer.
Here's an example of what a finished video looks like. With Adobe Spark post, you can create photos, flyers, and more that you can then print or post on your website or social media. Want more ideas? Ten Ways to Use Adobe Spark in Schools
