While this may not be relevant to many academics in higher education (unless you’re involved in literature or language courses) this is still an excellent resource that many more people should know about … it’s called Lit2Go.
“a collaboration between the Florida Department of Education and the USF College of Education [and] is dedicated to supporting literacy teaching and learning by providing access to historically and culturally significant literature in schools.”
So, what can you do with it? You can;
- Download the MP3 files and listen on the move or at your PC,
- View the text on a webpage and read along as you listen, or print them out and read wherever you want.
There are two easy ways to search and download the work you want, from a selection of over 5000 works from the likes of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Shakespeare, Beatrix Potter, and many more;
- Lit2Go website, or
- University of South Florida iTunesU site (link will open iTunes on your PC or Mac)
