The purpose of this communication is to serve as official notification regarding the product migration process for Promethean ActivInspire software. 
 
Promethean first introduced ActivInspire software over eight (8) years ago. Since that time, educators have created and delivered thousands of great Flipchart lessons that promote active engagement and foster student participation in the classroom.  Today, however, mobile, internet-connected devices are highly prevalent in the classroom.  In order to keep up with advancements in modern technology, it is now necessary not only to provide our customers with software and resources that preserve the pedagogical best practices that have been enabled in past versions of Promethean software, but also to address many of the expanded opportunities for student engagement that exist by leveraging many newer and emerging technologies, both today and into the future.
 
Effective immediately, all users of ActivInspire software (all editions and versions) are encouraged to migrate to Promethean’s next-generation of lesson delivery software for interactive touchboards entitled ClassFlow™ Desktop.
 
Compatible with Windows and Mac operating systems, ClassFlow Desktop is designed to serve as an upgrade and replacement for ActivInspire software. ClassFlow Desktop delivers much of the same functionality of ActivInspire, but provides educators with a suite of new and improved features including a simplified user interface and functions to enable collaboration with students via mobile PCs and tablets.
 
To facilitate the product migration, new tools and resources have been setup to assist in the process. ActivInspire software users must complete the following steps to successfully migrate to ClassFlow Desktop:

  • If you currently have an older version of ClassFlow Desktop downloaded to your computer, please delete it prior to installing the newest version (ClassFlow Desktop Version 3.0). Go to your language-specific URL to register for your free ClassFlow account and to download ClassFlow Desktop.
