[Athen] Kurzweil 3000 question

We use the License to Go feature in K3000 to install on student computers.
Actually, we give them a disk, they install, and give use the K3000
generated System ID # and with that we give them a license that is good
for a specified time period, after which the program disables and the
license is automatically re-established for use on our server. It is
slick. We don't have an AT lab, as such, though we do have a classroom
that is used to teach AT to students. Our AT is integrated into campus
computer labs and we will be implementing server based delivery to further
enhance this integration.

Re: [Athen] Kurzweil 3000 question


At our college all nine computers in our adaptive technology lab and
testing lab have Kurzweil 3000 client installations to run this program
off a server. In addition there are similarly configured computer
workstations in the general open computer lab, writing and reading labs,
library, adult education lab and assessment center. We have one computer
in the adaptive technology lab with an installation of Kurzweil 1000. Four
stand alone licenses are available to install on computers at our other
centers that are not on the network.

We do not install the software on personal computers. We do provide
students with purchasing information.

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 appreciated.

Have a great day and take care.
