Free eBooks and Audiobooks for Campbell High Students

Read Instantly. Borrow ebooks and audiobooks anytime with Sora.

Hello Spartans,

We hope you and your family are staying well. In stressful times such as these, it’s important to take time out for your own mental health. Reading a book is a great way to escape, to take your mind off current events, and to relax after a hard day of online schooling.

Fortunately, you don’t have to go anywhere to get books. You have 24/7 access to thousands of ebooks and audiobooks through the Campbell Commons Overdrive collection. You can access them easily through the Sora website or mobile apps. Just follow the instructions on our Sora App page to get started.

Even while school is closed, we’re committed to making sure you have access to books you want to read. If we don’t have the book you want in our Sora collection, we will do our best to buy it for you! Seriously. Just use the form on our website to place a request.

We miss you all and look forward to seeing you soon.

Sincerely,
Your Campbell Commons Staff

An Evolving List of Tips for Teaching Online

Here are some things we have learned in “real time” as we adjust to teaching fully online. We’ll continue adding to this list as we learn.

General Tips

  • Connecting to the Cobb VPN slows down your connection. Don’t connect to the VPN unless you specifically need something like the academic portal that is only available through it.
  • If you need to scan a document at home, use the OneDrive app on your smartphone. You can scan documents directly into your OneDrive.

Google Classroom

  • If you create a bunch of assignments at once, use the Schedule option to pace them out over time. That way students aren’t overwhelmed.
  • Videos uploaded to Google Classroom take a while to process before they can be viewed. Instead of scheduling assignments with attached videos immediately, schedule them for at least an hour in the future. That way the video is fully processed and available before the students see the assignment.

Removing Google Accounts from Shared iPads

Google stores account credentials in two different ways on the iPad. To clear your Google accounts, you will need to follow both steps below.

Step 1: Sign Out of Google Branded Apps

  1. Open one of the Google apps (Drive, Classroom, Docs, etc.)
  2. Open the Settings menu and look for the account/sign-in section
  3. Click Manage accounts on this device
  4. For any accounts listed, click Remove from this device

Step 2: Sign Out of Safari

Google account credentials are stored separately for Safari and apps that use Safari to authenticate, such as Flipgrid. The steps below remove the Google credentials from Safari and, in turn, for non-Google apps that use “Log in With Google.”

Method 1: Through the Browser

  1. In Safari, go to https://accounts.google.com/Logout 
  2. Click Remove an account
  3. Click the X beside the account name
  4. Click Yes, remove
  5. Repeat steps 2-4 for each account

Method 2: Through the Settings

  1. Open the iOS Settings app
  2. In the left menu, scroll down and click on Safari
  3. Navigate to Advanced > Website data
  4. Click Edit and delete the data for Google.com and any other relevant sites

Students: Back Up your files to Google Drive!

Student network storage (also known as your “H: drive,” your “home directory,” or just your “number”) is erased each summer!  Be sure to back up any files you wish to keep. One simple way to do this is to save all your files to your Campbellhigh.net Google drive. (Did you know you have unlimited cloud storage through this account?)  You can back up your files in three easy steps:

  1. On a school computer, open http:\\drive.google.com  and log in with your Campbellhigh.net Google Account.
  2. In Google Drive, click New, then click Folder Upload.Folder Upload menu
  3. Select your network drive (Look under “Computer” and find your student ID number.), then click OK.

That’s it! You should see your files being uploaded to Google Drive! If you have any problems, ask the Campbell Commons staff for help.
