  • Change Site feature is disabled because LTI key/secret pairs determine the school.

  • Exit button is suppressed – Users are required to log into their Backpacks upon first login. Subsequent access from within the LMS will be automatic.

Digital Audiobook cover images

We’ve implemented a “no-cover” default image to display inside the player for titles missing large covers.

Mackin is currently experiencing a high volume of live chats and calls. We’ll get back to everyone as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience. Please note that our free digital content offer is available for all domestic and international schools.

Got it!
