Mackin’s Free eBook Program, Designed To Help All Schools With Distance Learning, Met With Overwhelming Success.

Mackin Educational Resources, and forty of their generous publisher partners, collaborate to offer nearly 10,000 free, multi-user eBook titles to all schools who have begun critical distance learning initiatives due to COVID-19.

Burnsville, MINN, April 7, 2020 Mackin Educational Resources, a leading provider of print and digital fiction and non-fiction books for PK-12 schools around the world, saw a record-high number of free promotional title downloads, as well as a company-best record of MackinVIA registrations, on the first day of its free content giveaway. Within the first 24 hours of the program, several thousands of free titles were downloaded into new and existing MackinVIA accounts across the country, and around the world.

The new promotion boasts nearly 10,000 free multi-user eBooks, made possible by Mackin and the generosity of 40 of their concerned publisher partners who were also looking for ways to get content into the hands of educators and students.

As schools and districts continue to convert to distance learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic, those currently using the free MackinVIA platform can easily access, and download these free titles, appropriate for elementary, middle, and high school grade levels. All fiction and non-fiction titles are multi-user and available through September 2020.

Multi-user titles benefit students, especially during distance learning situations, allowing the books to be read by all students at the same time. The availability of these new titles makes this an ideal option for continuing education through the remainder of the school year and beyond, effectively helping educators create summer reading programs easily and at no cost.
