The ideal classroom digital microscope software.  Perfect for chromebook carts in STEM classrooms.  The SmartMicroScope Viewer Online app requires no install and and no adminstrative rights.  Simply plug the SmartMicroScope in, go to the website and log in to view the live, magnified image.  Simple science technology for the classroom.  Students get excited to see the live magnified images, technology leaders love it because there is no install and teachers love it because it is a great teaching tool that gets students excited about learning.  Elementary STEM chromebook classroom technology tool for all.  As chromebooks are more prevalent in classrooms, creativity abounds.  This made us evaluate our software and how it was being implemented.  Thousands of classrooms have used our scopes with great effectiveness, but the chromebook set limits on software features.  Until now.  This innovative online app does virtually everything that our SmartMicroScope Viewer PC and Mac software does, but without installing software.  This makes things much easier for teachers and students!  We are excited to offer this very creative classroom solution.

Traditional microscopes were not designed to engage the entire class at the same time. It takes a lot of time to view things using the old microscope because only one student can view at a time. The rest of the class has to have something else to do during this time. Now with the use of SmartMicroScope Optix connected to your traditional microscope, you can make learning more interesting by adding a chromebook microscope camera. It will also help the student understand concepts better since classroom discussions can take place while everyone views the crystal-clear image.
