Learning Ally is a kind of online library.  Students can search for books (novels, textbooks, study books) and add them to their online bookshelf.  Once the books are added, students can use the technology to read the books aloud to them.  This is a wonderful tool for students who are audio learners, as well as for students who suffer concussions from athletic injuries.
