Booktrack joins Google For Education Partner program

Booktrack said it has become a Google for Education Partner with its free Booktrack Classroom version for schools.

An industry leading global technology company, Booktrack is the only company that enhances the eBook experience by adding movie-style soundtracks and ambient audio to eBooks. This is the latest in a series of major announcements from Booktrack including the recent announcement of a USD5 million USD Series B financing, and now serves nearly 2.5 million active readers, educators, writers, publishers, self-publishers and music enthusiasts via the Booktrack platform.

Independent research has already proven that Booktrack dramatically improves student literacy, increasing reading comprehension and retention by 17 percent and reader engagement by 30 percent (Sources: NYU and The University of Auckland).

In addition to becoming a Google for Education Partner, Booktrack also has plans to further expand its education offering later in 2015, launching new tools and an expanded content library designed to encourage reading and writing.

Booktrack is a global technology company that synchronizes movie-style soundtracks and ambient sounds to eBooks. Music, ambient audio, and sound effects are automatically paced to an individual´s reading speed and synchronized to complement and enhance the story while a person reads increasing comprehension and enjoyment.
