Good Morning,

I am struggling with switching over to Overdrive's new educational app. I
don't see the point of it.

Does anyone have any insight on this that could shed some light on the
transition? I am at a high school, so maybe I am not seeing the benefits
for older students. The interface is very juvenile.

To me, the layout and interface is not as user friendly as the Overdrive

There are just so many little nuances that don't flow together, especially
the fact that our Destiny catalog Marc records link the e-books to the
regular Overdrive site. Students would then have to go to a different APP
to open up.

I do understand that the app coincides with Google Classroom, however most
of our Overdrive Collection is used for pleasure reading. At this point we
don't have the funding to purchase class set E-Books.
