Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Do I need to install anything on my server?
No installation is necessary; the software is web-based and runs in a browser. The only system requirement is a recent browser for macOS, Windows, or Chrome:
- Firefox 52 or newer
- Chrome 57 or newer
- Safari 11 or newer
- Edge 16 or newer
NOTE: Web-based iNSIGHT™ labs will not run in mobile browsers. iOS Apps are available for all iNSIGHT™ labs. For details, and links to the iTunes Store, visit http://www.polyhedronlearning.com/see_apps_insight.html.
How long does my license last?
Each license is valid for 365 days from the date of purchase. The expiration date for each Experiment/Demonstration is shown on your My Account page. Student access will continue as long as the instructor whose Class Code they used to register has a current valid license or until the instructor Revokes access.
How do I access the Experiments/Demonstrations?
After completing your purchase:
- Go to My Account
- Login with your username and password,
- Select Enter for any available Experiment/Demonstration.
How do students register?
NOTE: Each registered instructor is assigned a unique Class Code when they register on the Polyhedron iNSIGHT web site. Each of your students will need your Class Code to complete their Registration.
Direct your students to the Polyhedron iNSIGHT home page (https://polyhedroninsight.com), then to the Student Registration link at the top of the page. If the link isn’t visible, you can find it by widening your browser window or by selecting it from the MENU link at the top of the page.
Each of your students will be required to provide:
- The Name of their School/Institution,
- Their Course of study,
- The assigned Class Code.
Each student will receive a unique, software-generated Student Code.
Your Instructor Dashboard will list:
- Student names (in the order they register*)
- Each student’s Course of study (helpful information for those who have students in more than one course or section)
- Each student’s unique Student Code.
NOTE: *Your Instructor Dashboard lists student names in the order they register. The student roster can be copied and pasted into a spreadsheet for sorting.
What if I have different students each semester?
The Access column in the class roster includes a Revoke option, allowing you to remove students. Others can be registered as long as the number of students remains in compliance with the number of students you selected when ordering.
What if I have some of the same students in a subsequent semester?
Simply don’t Revoke their access. If you want to add removed students back on your Roster, you can enter their Student Codes (found on your Instructor Dashboard) or ask those students to enter your Class Code on their My Account page.
