  • You must have administrative rights for all of the student computers in order to install the SmartClass Student software.

SmartClass asks you to confirm the Target Directory and Program Menu Entry as shown below. (Currently, you are unable to change these entries.) Click on Next to proceed.

Desktop Icons


When the BYOD software has been installed, two SmartClass+ icons will appear on the student’s desktop (as shown at right):

  • SmartClass Media Student (HUB) – This icon is used to access the Media Activities Dashboard for self-study activities.

  • SmartClass Student (LIVE) – This icon is used to access the Live Activities Dashboard configuration panel for SmartClass+, and to provide access to both the Live Activities Dashboard and to HomeWork. The pop-up view is shown below.
