ELF™ Reading & Reference

Education = Learning + Fun

ELF Reading & Reference is a new web-based solution that combines AWE’s safe online environment for children (ELF Child-Safe Browser) with three additional premium educational resources: Britannica Online for Kids, nonfiction interactive e-books from Rourke Publishing, and the growing Speakaboos catalogue of exclusive, interactive digital storybooks.

Additional subscription-based resources will be made available through the ELF browser in the near future.

Some of the features of ELF Reading & Reference include the ability for administrators to add and hide websites in order to customize it for their constituents; Safe Mode functionality that “locks down” ELF so children can’t access other files on a computer or go to unapproved websites; and the ability to brand ELF with your own logo and organization name.

ELF Reading & Reference is available on an annual subscription basis. As part of the subscription, schools can add a copy of ELF Reading & Reference to any computer in their building and distribute it freely to students and families in their community!

ELF Reading & Reference costs a fraction of what all of these products would cost if purchased individually.
