Qlovi, a classroom eBook and literacy platform, will now offer select HarperCollins Publishers backlist titles on their innovative education platform. Titles will be sold in time-based increments, allowing teachers to acquire titles for the specific amount of time of needed for classroom work. Purchases made will appear alongside Qlovi’s free lessons, quizzes, and automatic data technology.
In October 2013, Qlovi won the first ever HarperCollins BookSmash Challenge, a competition to “use imagination and technology to build software that goes beyond the traditional ways we read and discover books.” Qlovi’s winning “Connections” app, which allows readers to explore their identities and discover authors with similar identities, experiences, locations, or traits, is expected out in Fall 2014.
With HarperCollins titles and Qlovi’s assessment and tracking platform, teachers can now better select titles to match students’ interests. Traditionally, schools have the classic books available, which are also most likely to lose the interest of struggling or reluctant readers, according to the announcement. With eBooks in Classrooms, a diverse range of books becomes more readily available, more affordable, and provides more opportunity to engage all young readers.
Qlovi is a digital reading and writing platform for K-12 classrooms offering eBook rentals at the district, school, and classroom levels. Their device-agnostic platform is designed to be flexible to individual classroom setups.
