Frequently Asked Questions about E-Lit

What is E-Lit?

E-Lit is a digital library for World Language learners, built with TONS of visual scaffolding and leveled using our own World Language leveling system, designed by a former Reading Intervention, ESOL, French, and Spanish teacher. We began with only digital texts, but we are beginning to print full-color paperbacks so that you can add them to your classroom bookshelves, too!

Is this an app?

After the first year and a half of E-Lit, we have chosen to discontinue the app interface that we began this journey with in 2020. Even though we invested HUGE amounts of time and money into the app during 2020 and 2021, we were never able to get it to the "WOWZA" level of wow that you and your students deserve. So we are now offering E-Lit through a simpler (and, frankly, much more beautiful to look at) interface.

While many teachers were sad to see some of the app's functionality go, many others love the sleek interface of the e-readers. And we love the fact that we can now focus on what we do best: researching, writing, and illustrating engaging, easy-to-read texts for levels one through six!

An added bonus? The price went down, and there is a wider variety of options to fit your budget and needs.

How much does E-Lit cost?

Beginning in March of 2022, we will begin to offer access to the new E-Lit. Pricing is tentatively set as follows.

Is student data protected?

Yes! E-Lit is 100% FERPA and COPPA compliant. Students can create an account without their email address or any personal data.

Can my school pay with a Purchase Order?

Of course! Simply reach out to Susan at accounts@ciliftoff.com with the names and email addresses of the teachers included in the Purchase Order, and we will get the process started for you!

Is there a discount for districts or departments?

We absolutely want to bring your district or department on board! Please email Susan at accounts@ciliftoff.com with your group size and we will work with you and your school or district to get E-Lit into your students' hands!

Is there audio included?

Coming soon! We are actively working to get students the option to listen along to each text as they read.
