One final question before Turkey Day- does anyone know of a good, recent article about group dynamics that I could use for my tutor training?  I am struggling to find a relevant article that is accessible enough for my Level III tutors. 

Thanks, everyone.

Hello again.


Here is what our AT Specialist thinks:


We provide Kurzweil 3000 for our students who utilize the ASAC for support.  We like that it can be managed online as well as has a desktop and application. The online management system allows us to also track usage which we feel is very helpful.  The ability to save documents to a Universal Library or connect it to a drop box or G drive is extremely helpful for our students.  It is also very helpful for our students who struggle with the writing process, especially with their templates/visual organizer.

The one problem we have is sometimes the web application does not work. Also, they do a lot of updates which can be a hindrance for our students using this software for testing purposes.


I hope this helps.

I had heard about Kurzwell when I took over the Learning Support Services part of the ARC but did not know what it was.  I just learned more from a past student who uses it in his classrooms.

I am wondering if anyone uses it on their campuses and the pros and cons of it.  

There seems to be a cloud based version of it which may work for our System. We have 10 campus and 3 extension campuses across MI and if we could buy one account and share that would be a cost savings.   


Any thoughts?  Has anyone tried to share an account across campuses?


Thanks for you input & Happy Thanksgiving
