Kurzweil's new offline mode offers users with a Web Access subscription the opportunity to access k3000 when internet connections are spotty or simply not available. Students who are traveling, or on break for the holidays, can get the supports they need while they’re away.
Offline mode also has great applications for providing test-taking accommodations on disconnected computers.
How Does Offline Mode Work?
Log in to k3000 when the computer is connected to the internet. The k3000 credentials are saved in a secure location on the computer. When internet connectivity is either low or gone, users will be prompted to work in Offline Mode. Any work saved to the computer can then be uploaded to the k3000 online library when the internet connection is restored. Note that web-based features, such as online reference and translation will be grayed out until the computer is re-connected to the internet.
The new user interface for the Windows/Mac desktop, is simpler and more intuitive to use for new users, but keeps all the rich functionality that experienced Kurzweil users have grown to expect. The update includes a new start screen, but the navigation at the top still acts the same.
Web license customers receive this upgrade and all upgrades to their k3000 at no cost.
Just run the update on your k3000 and you’ll get the new version.
To run an update, just open k3000 from your desktop, select "Options” in the main navigation and click on "Updates.”
Encouraging active reading -- an educator can embed bubble note questions right in the text! Use for comprehension, making connections, vocabulary development... the teaching possibilities are endless. And this is just one kind of note. K3000 has footnotes, text notes, stickies and even voice notes, too.
