Media & Digital Libraries

Hoopla

Hoopla is a groundbreaking digital media service offered by your local public library that allows you to borrow movies, music, audiobooks, ebooks, comics, and TV shows to enjoy on your computer, tablet, or phone – and even your TV! With no waiting, titles can be streamed immediately, or downloaded to phones or tablets for offline enjoyment later. They have hundreds of thousands of titles to choose from, with more being added daily. Hoopla is like having your public library at your fingertips. Anytime. Anywhere.

LiveBinders

LiveBinders is a school-wide library of resources that Enlightium Academy (EA) teachers have cultivated, created, and/or compiled in order to empower independent student learning by equipping students with access to relevant, on-demand resources that will help them work through their assignments. The LiveBinder is packed full of resources that are broken down by concept and/or by Course/Unit/Assignment/Question.

Once EA teachers identify a pattern that hinders students, they then create/locate/place an appropriate resource into the LiveBinder, enabling all students from there forward access to the created resources, additional instruction, etc.

OverDrive

With OverDrive you can borrow ebooks, audiobooks, and more from your local public library—anywhere, anytime. All you need is a library card.

Zoom.us

Zoom.us is the screen-sharing tool used by students and teachers to review materials.
