Okay, I have a question that I'm hoping someone might have some insight on about using the Hoopla app in a school environment with a filtering system. I have a teacher that wrote a grant for some Kindle fires. I can control what the students download on the Fires with the Whispercast management system. However the teacher would like to use Hoopla in the classroom as well. She has a library card, and a Hoopla account for her students. However some of the material on Hoopla has explicit lyrics, etc. I can control the Hoopla app with a free applocker. My question is this, how can I filter those Kindle Fires without having the teacher unlock the app every time a student would like to read an approved book. I'm really nervous about this, because I'm afraid students will be downloading things that they shouldn't be downloading. Any thoughts on this one? I have tried contacting Hoopla, and they just give me the run around, and said they have no way of being able to keep kids from download things from Hoopla as long as they have an account. Thank you in advance, I appreciate it!!

I guess your best bet is to stick with the applocker.
