E-Book Platform Qlovi to Distribute HarperCollins Titles
Classroom e-book and literacy provider Qlovi will now offer select HarperCollins Publishers backlist titles on its education platform. Titles will be sold in time-based increments, allowing teachers to acquire them for the specific amount of time they are needed for classroom work. Qlovi offers e-book rentals at the district, school, and classroom levels. With HarperCollins titles and Qlovi’s device-agnostic assessment and Common Core performance tracking platform, teachers will be able to select titles to match students’ interests.
In October 2013, Qlovi won the first 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 to be released this fall.
