Some Brain Hive Updates!

If you’ve visited brainhive.com recently, you’ve probably noticed a couple of changes to the website’s appearance. We’ve been hard at work, updating our site to reflect some of the recent developments at Brain Hive. More changes will be forthcoming, of course, as we continue to update our resources and offerings, but I wanted to briefly point out some of the most exciting new features of our home on the web.

new website

  • If you didn’t already know, in addition to the 10,000+ eBook titles Brain Hive offers for on-demand rental and multi-user purchase on our online platform, we are now proud to offer companion paperbacks for almost all of our eBooks. Stock up your classroom library, establish or supplement your K-5 bookrooms, or purchase digital and/or print titles that will supplement curriculum initiatives in your content area. Want to learn more? Check out the Print and Collections tab at brainhive.com.
  • We’ve significantly beefed up our collection search and preview functionality. Now, you are able to search the entirety of Brain Hive’s digital and print collection, using dynamic filtering tools that will allow you to tailor your search results to fit your unique curricular needs. You are also able to preview each and every title – for free – simply by clicking on the Preview button next to the title you’re interested in.
  • After you’ve found titles that meet your needs, you’re also now able to immediately export the book list you’ve built into an editable document complete with pricing, which you can then submit to your school’s purchasing department for processing. We’re really excited about this feature, as it allows you the freedom to customize your Brain Hive experience from the start.
  • Also, not to worry, all of the account features you’re familiar with on the Brain Hive platform are still going strong! You’re still able to support your students’ digital literacy and stamina with robust eReader tools, customizable collections and theme sets, and another exciting new feature: Reading Groups! Differentiate classroom instruction with themed, leveled reading assignments and literature circles, and foster your students’ critical thinking and writing skills with discussion board functionality.

I encourage you to take a look at the new website, and of course, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to be in touch: by phone at 855-554-4483, or via email at concierge@brainhive.com.
