Sora OverDrive Reading app

Sora has seen quite a few changes over the past few months and with all the emails that land in your inbox, it can be easy to miss an announcement or two. To help you get caught up on all things Sora, below is a list of seven new features and tools you may have missed. Check them out below:

  • Google Classroom Add-On –  The new Sora Add-On allows you to browse your school’s catalog and attach specific titles to posts within Google Classroom.
    • Only available for schools using Google Workspace for Education Plus or the Teaching and Learning Upgrade.
    • See here for details.
  • On-Demand Class Sets – Feedback from schools helped us develop a more flexible curriculum-centered lending model option.
  • Content Bundles – Reserve titles and offer exclusive access to select users. Great for curriculum titles, classroom libraries, professional development for staff and more.
  • Sora Extras – Add learning resources like DOGO News and Method Learning to Sora.
  • Comics & Magazines – All access comics and magazines packages are now available for Sora! Contact your Account Manager for pricing.
  • Sora Showcase – Give your digital collection a physical presence with our free interactive discovery kiosk software! Contact Zach Delin at OverDrive to get started.
  • Student Dashboard – Admins can now see more detailed individual and aggregated reading data to help make data-driven decisions about literacy and reading initiatives.
