Once a student is added to a reading list, how do those books appear when they log on to their account on a Chromebook?  Do they need to download, or just "Read Now"?

Hi Denise,

The student's will simply need to select the Read Now link next to the book to open it up in the Web Reader.  

Note that if you are just getting started on Chromebooks it's also necessary to install a new text to speech voice:

  1. Go to the Chrome Web Store and install "Chrome OS US English Female HQ."
  2. Sign out, then sign back in to the Chromebook.
  3. Open the book in the Web Reader, navigate to the Web Reader settings and select this voice from the options.
