DALLAS, April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Voyager Sopris Learning™, provider of a comprehensive suite of evidence-based interventions, assessments, and professional services, today announced the release of a cloud-based eLibrary application for accessing professional development and instructional eBooks. These fully searchable electronic books, with titles from Voyager Sopris Learning's best-selling authors, provide online and offline access to rich content and resources.
With two-thirds of school administrators using smartphones or tablets and over half of teachers accessing digital content with smartphones (Market Data Retrieval, 2013), there is an increased need for high-quality digital professional resources. The Voyager Sopris Learning eLibrary delivers high-quality content in a rich, digital format providing convenience and improved organization. Educators can access these eBooks online with any web-enabled device, and offline reading is supported both through a native iOS app and through Chrome.
"We are responding to how educators are retrieving content today; there is no question that providing professional resources that can be accessed across a variety of devices is not just the way of the future, but the way of now," says George Logue, president of Voyager Sopris Learning. "Educators want to use devices that they use in their everyday lives. The eLibrary gives them this experience."
The eLibrary features titles by renowned researchers and best-selling authors, including Dr. Louisa Moats, Dr. Anita Archer, Dr. Lucy Hart Paulson, Dr. Susan Hall, Dr. Jan Hasbrouck, Dr. María Elena Argüelles, Dr. Jeffrey Sprague, Dr. Annemieke Golly, Dr. Carol Tolman, Dr. Nancy Hennessy, Dr. Marcia Davidson, and Joanne Allain.
With eLibrary, educators can:
- Flexibly navigate content with features that include an interactive table of contents, intra-book links, a slider bar, and page jump
- Highlight, bookmark, add notes, and see annotations all in one place
- Add their own highlights, bookmarks, and notes—all of which automatically sync to the cloud when moving between online and offline reading
- Toggle between two distinct reading options— a fully interactive, resource-laden view with reflowable and resizable text; and a page-fidelity view, which shows pages exactly as they appear in the printed book
- Utilize embedded links to videos, printable tools, and educator resources
- Search across all book content and user annotations
- Create and manage bookshelves for easy organization
Titles in the Voyager Sopris Learning eLibrary include Dr. Louisa Moats' LETRS® (Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling) professional development suite, featuring LETRS Foundations, LETRS Modules 1–10, LETRS for Early Childhood Educators, and Teaching English Learners. Additional titles include Best Behavior; A Principal's Primer for Raising Reading Achievement; REWARDS® Intermediate and Secondary (new editions); I've DIBEL'd, Now What? Next Edition; The Reading Coach; Leading Literacy Change; and Logistics of Literacy Intervention.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis.
