[Athen] Kurzweil 3000 question

Here at WSU:

1) We have K3000 & K1000 on select campus workstations (in the DRC
and library)

2) In some instances we have installed K3000 on student computers,
and we set up the "license to go" as a learn station and set the time
limit to the end of the current term.

3) We do provide information about purchasing a K license (I have
dealt here primarily with K3000 in this regard), but a number of
students have ended up purchasing Wynn for themselves, primarily because
of pricing.

Hope this helps.

Subject: [Athen] Kurzweil 3000 question


I am the technology support person for the Student Academic Services
here at Houghton College (Houghton, NY). I deal with the installation of
Kurzweil 3000/1000 on some of our students' laptops and am the general
guru for the SAS department.

Houghton College is in the process of evaluating its laptop program and
I need to find out what other institutions do in relation to K3000/1000
(assuming the other institutions don't have a laptop program). Can you
give me some feedback on the following issues:

1) Do you make K3000 (or K1000) accessible to students on workstations
located on campus?

2) Do you make either of those software packages available to students
who want the software installed on their personal computers (laptop or
desktop)? If so, how do you deal with the licenses for that situation --
and do you install the software or do you expect the students to install
the software?

3) Do you just provide information about the software and advise
students how they can purchase it from Kurzweil?

If you could respond as soon as possible, that would be much

Have a great day and take care.
