Renaissance myON Reader is a valuable tool used in elementary classrooms to provide students with easy access to a digital library of books. Users particularly appreciate the program's ability to read books aloud, as it allows students to enjoy books that may not be available in their school library. This feature has received positive feedback from both students and teachers alike. Additionally, myON Reader is used by English Learners to develop their reading skills in their native language as well as in English.

The program is often used in conjunction with Accelerated Reader, making it easier for students to earn their A.R. points. During school closures due to COVID-19, Renaissance myON Reader played a crucial role in enabling students to continue their reading journey and complete assignments within the program. It also serves as a district-wide solution for providing students with online access to a wide variety of books, eliminating the problem of limited physical book availability in libraries. Teachers find myON Reader to be a helpful tool for extra reading practice and for engaging parents in their students' reading progress. However, some users have mentioned that not all books on myON have an associated AR test, which can be a drawback. Overall, myON Reader has proven to be a beneficial resource for students, particularly younger ones who are still developing their reading skills and need exposure to reading materials beyond the classroom.

Vast Selection of Reading Materials: Many users have praised the Text to Speech Diverse Library for its extensive range of reading materials, offering students a wide variety of options to choose from. This diverse selection ensures that students can find books that interest them and keep them engaged and motivated to read.

Personalized Approach to Learning: Reviewers have highlighted the program's ability to suggest reading materials that match each student's individual reading level. By tailoring the content to their abilities, the program supports personalized learning and helps students develop their reading skills effectively.

Easy Accessibility and User-Friendly Interface: Multiple reviewers have mentioned how easy it is to access and navigate through the program. They appreciate its user-friendly interface, which accommodates different age groups and reading abilities, making it accessible even for first-grade students.

Limited book collection: Some users have expressed disappointment with the limited selection of books available on myON, particularly in the fiction genre. They feel that there should be a greater variety of titles to choose from to cater to different reading preferences and interests.

Difficult teacher interface: Several reviewers have found the teacher side of the software to be unfriendly and difficult to navigate. They would like to see improvements in terms of usability and user-friendliness, making it easier for teachers to access and utilize the features provided.

Lack of clear organization: Users have mentioned that the book levels on myON could be organized in a clearer fashion. They suggest implementing categories or tags with specific reading levels, allowing for easier identification of appropriate materials for students at different proficiency levels. Additionally, both students and teachers would benefit from more visibility on the reading levels assigned to each book.

  • Colorful.
  • Connected to RenPlace.
  • I could never figure it out.
  • Students levels from their STAR test did not translate into the books suggested on myON.
  • The platform is cumbersome and inaccessible for students and teachers.
  • I am fairly tech-savvy, but I could never navigate through and understand how myON worked. Eventually, I gave up and switched to Epic.
  • The book selection was poor. Only the non-fiction books were interesting to my students. None of the popular titles and authors were available.
  • It was a big disappointment and frustration for me and my students.

  • Students can choose books based on their reading level.
  • Students and teachers can read books together as if we were in reading circles.
  • Students can choose books by categories of interest.
  • I'd like to see book levels laid out in an easier to find fashion. For example, each category could have books at a 1.0-2.0 level, and so on...
