At BlinkLearning we are determined to provide the best tools to our users, bringing about improvements to education and more solutions for schools and teachers.

As part of this commitment, during the 2016-2017 school year, we launched the Digital Backpacks Project, an initiative that aims to make it easier for schools and parents to select, manage and acquire the digital textbooks needed for each course.

The project consists of the creation of personalized “digital backpacks” that group the necessary books for each course, group and level together in one place, thus expediting the purchase of the material. Parents only have to access BlinkShop, select their school from the School Bags dropdown menu, and add the corresponding school bag for their year to the shopping cart with a single click.
