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?

We provide both K3000 and K1000 available throughout the
whole district by running it on a server that every lab has access to.

We install the client side on a number of computers in each

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?

If the student needs it on their own laptop or home
computer, we provide a 'license to go' but because of liability issues,
we have them install the client side of K3000. We do not provide K1000
to their own systems.

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

We give a suggestion of different vendors that do sell
Kurzweil, otherwise we would be promoting a certain vendor over another.

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

Have a great day and take care.
