Do you need a way to access books when an internet connection or mobile app is not available?
To support this need, we’ve added the option to download titles for offline use at soraapp.com.
Note: This new option is available for students using Chrome. Students will need to download books over an internet connection (with VPN) before reading offline.
How does this work?
When a student visits soraapp.com, we’ll check to see if their browser has enough offline storage to support book downloads. If enough storage is available, soraapp.com will allow students to download books for offline use, just like in the Android and iOS apps. When offline mode is supported, Sora displays “Download settings” in the right menu.
How can students access their downloaded titles offline?
In Chrome, soraapp.com will prompt students to add a shortcut to Sora for an easy way to get back to their downloaded books when offline. Once offline, students can simply open their Sora shortcut and navigate to their Shelf.
