Program Versions

Online programs use the concept of "assigned" users or the number of users enrolled in a program at one time.

For example, 30 students at a time can be enrolled to use the software. When a class ends or when students complete the program, new students may be re- assigned to use the 30 seats.

Windows desktop programs use the concept of "concurrent" users or the number of users actively working on the program at exactly the same time.

For example, a 5 Station: networkable version can be installed on one server and may be accessible to every computer on the network. However, only five students may log on to it at the same time.

Free and Unlimited Support

All customers receive unlimited technical support by telephone and email. We make ourselves available to help teachers have a successful experience.
