INSIGHT 360 User Guide • Overview einstruction.com/insight360 15 a)          Insight 360 Premium Edition or Insight 360 Premium USB Stick is required to run the Insight 360 Student application. b)          The Insight 360 Premium USB Stick must be inserted into an available USB 2.0 port on the computer running Insight 360 whenever Insight 360 Student applications are connected to a class or test session.   How Insight 360 Works The eInstruction Insight 360 classroom instruction system increases lesson impact, provides award-winning content, encourages student participation, assesses comprehension during class time and tracks daily progress. You will use the integrated Insight 360 system in three phases: • Before Class:  Plan using the Insight 360 software. • During Class:  Teach using the Mobi 360 or Insight 360 Teacher application. • After Class:  Assess and report using the Insight 360 software. Communication between Insight 360 and the Mobi 360 The Insight 360 software installed on your classroom computer communicates wirelessly with the teaching device:  either a Mobi 360 mobile interactive whiteboard (using the Mobi 360 Receiver) or Insight 360 Teacher application (using Wi-Fi on a device such as an iPad). All classes, student data, tests, favorites and other information reside on the classroom computer running the Insight 360 software. Note:          Your class, student, favorites, test and other data will not be accessible if you take your Mobi 360 or Insight 360 Teacher device to another classroom even if that classroom computer is running Insight 360, unless you have also set up that computer with the same classes, students, favorites, tests and other data.  The Mobi 360 or Insight 360 Teacher application allows you to control the Insight 360 software from a mobile platform. The Mobi 360 itself does not retain any data, settings or other information. It presents data gathered by the Insight 360 software. Communicating with Clickers The Insight 360 software communicates with the Pulse 360 and/or Spark 360 student response pads through the Pulse/Spark 360 Receiver. The Insight 360 software collects data from the student response system when questions are initiated from either the Mobi 360, Insight 360–Teacher application, or Insight 360 (in the case of a self-paced test). For students completing self-paced Answer Key or ExamView tests using Pulse 360 or Spark 360 clickers, the tests must be handed out on paper. Students using clickers can also answer Verbal, Tagged and individual ExamView questions during class.

INSIGHT 360 User Guide • Overview einstruction.com/insight360 16 Communicating with WiFi Devices Insight 360 communicates with consumer devices (such as iPads) running the Insight 360 Student application or Insight 360 Web Access browser-based application through Wi-Fi. When you send self-paced Answer Key and ExamView tests to these student devices from the Insight 360 software, students can view the attached test content on their screens. Students using these devices can also answer verbal, tagged, and individual ExamView questions. In addition, students using devices running the Insight 360 Student application can engage in Constructed Response mode when the instructor is using the Insight 360 Teacher application.
