How do I distribute Logger Pro 3 to my students?

The purchase of Logger Pro 3 software includes a site license that allows you to install Logger Pro 3 on any computer in a department (college or university) or school (K-12), as well as personal computers of students and faculty in the department or school. The benefit of the site license is access and availability to Logger Pro 3 in and out of the classroom. Students can easily use it for special projects or to complete lab work outside of class time. Graphs and other objects from Logger Pro 3 can be copied and pasted into other applications such as a word processor or spreadsheet for reports and papers.

The easiest way to distribute Logger Pro 3 to your students is to create an account on our website at https://www.vernier.com/account/?action=register. This lets you:

  • Download Logger Pro 3 to any computer in your school or college department, regardless of whether a previous version is installed.
  • Send students an email with full download, password, and installation instructions so they can install Logger Pro 3 on their home computers.

You can then send this message to the email address associated with your account. From your email account, you can then forward the message to your IT Department.
