Audiobooks and copyright question

I want my students to have access to the NG Audiobooks, but CD is mostly a dead technology and it is difficult to find players. Our district has a 1:1 program using Chromebooks. Can I rip the CDs onto a flash drive and allow them to listen to them on their Chromebooks?

    That is your school's decision. Many of the audiobooks have MP3 files in SAM. Do a search in SAM Resources using MP3 as the search term. Not all the books are available as MP3s as the company has not been given the copyright permission to publish all of them. Dee, Ask Dee at the READ 180 Community
