I was asked what the make of the MP3 layer is that staff will receive if they complete Learn 2.0. The reason for the question was out of curiosity to see if it works with Net Library for free downloadable books through the library. I printed out their “tested players”.
Another great question!! The MP3 player for the Completer's Prize is a Sansa c-240. This is the same model that I showed when I visited the branches and depts. I have tested it with our audio books and had no problem downloading and listening to a book. The info below is from the Sansa web site.
