Add Individual Membership

With just a few simple steps, teachers can add a free Individual Membership to their students' Organizational (school) accounts. This allows students to read books from the entire Bookshare collection in addition to those assigned by teachers. This can build greater reading skills and overall independence.

Download Usage Data

You can review download data on both the student and account level. For student level data, select the student's last name on the Member Roster. You will see lists of their assigned books, downloaded books, and the Reading Lists to which they are assigned to. Under "Downloaded Books" you can see the date they accessed the book and the format in which the book was accessed. This history can also be exported to a spreadsheet that you can open and manipulate in Excel.
