How to access Learning Ally

Rhianon Gutierrez Updated by Rhianon Gutierrez

What is Learning Ally and who has access?

Learning Ally is an online tool that provides access to a library of audiobooks for students who need support with reading.

Teachers and school-based staff will have access to Learning Ally via Clever, provided that the school has at least one person identified as a Qualifier in Learning Ally.

How do I become a Qualifier or find my school's Qualifier?
Users who see the app in their portal should locate their school's Qualifier to partner with them to add students and increase outreach. If you do not know the name of your school's Qualifier, contact one of our BPS Master Admins below.

If you do not see the app in your portal, that means that your school does not yet have a Qualifier. Take our online course and fill out our form to become one.
