We have many training institutes customers asking about how to use the simulator to do remote teaching during the pandemic.
First of all, if you already have an educational license pack, you can contact our helpdesk to get specific instructions on how to get started. On the other hand, if you are thinking of buying a license but have doubts about how it works, we will explain it below:
When you order an educational license from us, you will get an automatic email back with a license string that can be used to unlock the software on your computers. We also have an alternative license that instead is using a license file. If you contact us, we can convert the license as you like free of charge. When it comes to remote teaching, the license file option is more practical.
We will send you a link to download the license file. The teacher or administrator can then send this file, or the link to download it, to all of the students.
The students will need a Windows PC and a working Internet connection. He or she will then have to download and install the simulator from our download page and finally copy the license file to the installation folder. We will explain this process in detail upon request. The students can either contact our helpdesk directly for instructions or go via the teacher.
Once all students have installed the software the teacher can use the built-in cloud service to upload and download CNC files, drawings, and CAM files to share them with the students. The students can also upload their progress via the cloud service.
The teacher may also choose to use services like Skype, Zoom, Dropbox, Google Classroom, WhatsApp, and others to facilitate the classes and communication with the students.
We hope this helps to clarify how remote teaching with CNCSimulator Pro is done. We will be happy to answer any remaining questions you may have on our helpdesk.
Stay safe everyone!
