 In Press Releases

BURNSVILLE, MINN (January 2, 2014) – Just in time for the new year, Mackin Educational Resources is giving MackinVIA users more to love: free eBook bundles.

Thousands of Mackin customers have activated their free MackinVIA accounts. However, for those who have not, Mackin Educational Resources is extending a special offer. Simply activate a new free MackinVIA account and receive a free eBook bundle with more than 30 fiction and nonfiction titles for elementary, middle school, or high school levels.

First developed and released in 2010, MackinVIA quickly became a popular content management system for educational databases and eBooks. As an extension of MackinVIA, an eReader app for iPad and Android tablets was launched in 2012 to allow users offline reading of their digital content hosted in the Mackin cloud. The app is available through iTunes and Google Play for iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Android telephones and tablets, Kindle, Nook, and Macintosh and Windows desktops.

In 2013, MackinVIA gained robust new features such as a tablet-friendly slider control for advanced search filters, an EasyBib citations button on the full record, and a new “My Notebook” page containing the user’s synced highlights/notes created in the MackinVIA Reader application. The MackinVIA eReader app was also bolstered and bettered. Users were given the ability to highlight text in a variety of colors or underline, create notes on the highlighted sections, and utilize an integrated Merriam-Webster Dictionary and EasyBib citations.

With close to 50,000 audiobook titles and more than 200,000 eBook and database titles available, MackinVIA is one of the most powerful digital resource management tools available for schools and students.
