Students can start listening to their favorite books online or offline, with Audible learning platform giving access to more than 2,500 audio books to give them the best learning experience.
Audible is launching a digital reading experience that gives students access to audiobook titles, as well as a new set of learning tools.
It will also let them create their own audio book series.
“The idea is that we are creating a digital book series that is a personalized way to learn,” says Audible’s CEO Michael Wirth.
“You can have your own audio books, you can have them with your favorite teachers or whatever you want.
We’ve taken the best content from the best books on the market and made it accessible to students.”
Audible will also offer free audio books for new readers, as it does for most books, but will have some of its own exclusive content.
In addition to the book series, Audible also offers a collection of audio lessons for free.
Audibles latest move is to start allowing teachers to customize their content, which is a major step forward.
The company already has a dedicated community for teachers and students to share their experiences and recommendations.
It’s also partnering with universities to stream audio books that are exclusive to their courses.
But with Audibly, it looks like the company will also have more of a reach in education, too.
“We see the future as digital learning,” Wirth says.
“What we are trying to do is give students the most personalized learning experience.”
