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) at the same campus, 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 instructor account on our website at https://www.vernier.com/account/?action=register. This lets you do the following:

  • Download Logger Pro 3 to any computer in your school or college department on a campus, 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 personal computers.

To send the download information to your students:

1. Instructors, sign in to your account at https://www.vernier.com/account/

OR
If you are already logged in, click My Account in the upper-right corner of any page on our web site.

3. Click Distribute To Your Students to construct a message that includes the installation links and instructions. There are three ways to distribute to your students. Choose the option that works for you:

Option 1
Send the message to the email address associated with your Vernier account. Then, you can forward the email to your students from within your email program.
Option 2
Open your email program and create a new message. Copy and paste the text of the message directly into the email. Then, send the email to your students.
Option 3
Post the text to a password-protected class web page or similar. Please do not post the information on a page that can be found by anyone searching the internet.
