ESI CD-ROM FAQs: Frequently Asked Questions
If a teacher has one CD, can she use the one CD with all the students in her class or does each student need a CD?
These CD's were designed for individual use. The CD's are password coded for each individual. The skills test can be taken only once and those skills and traits are automatically saved and used throughout the CD as well as automatically included in the investigator's notebook information included on the CD. If a teacher would like to use the CD as an additional resource for a business/entrepreneurship class, he/she would need to order one for each student. In the e-commerce section, as the student works through the activities, they are asked to jot down metatags, look at graphics, etc. This they do for their own business ideas and these notes are automatically saved on the CD. All the "jot it down" notes are automatically saved.
What is the cost of the CD if the teachers need to buy a CD for each student?
The cost per CD is $7.50 each -- with the information each user will receive when they use the CD, it's well worth that price. The teacher/leader should look at is as another workbook that could be used to supplement the ESI curriculum. There is very little redundancy in the ESI notebook VS what is on the CD.
Can the CD be loaded on to a network and broadcast that way?
The instructor can project the various pages of the CD on a screen to explain what needs to be done, but the work that the students do would have to be done by each individual - either in a computer lab or as a homework assignment.
