Launching the LITE Version of Cognitive Tutor or MATHia
In some cases, it may be helpful for students to launch Cognitive Tutor® LITE or MATHia® LITE.
The LITE versions provide the same personalized instruction as Cognitive Tutor Prime and MATHia. While Cognitive Tutor Prime and MATHia run as Java applets within the student's web browser, the LITE versions run as Java webstarted applications outside the browser. This enables the LITE versions the flexibility to run in environments where Java applets are restricted by permissions, hardware, network or software limitations.
While the LITE versions offer the same educational experience, there is some functionality excluded from the LITE version. Please review this article on the differences in the two versions.
Please note: the LITE versions of the software still require Java to be installed on the computer.
What can students do?
1. After signing in, students can launch the LITE version by clicking the appropriate button.
Cognitive Tutor LITE button:
MATHia LITE button:
2. If the software does not launch automatically, check the bottom of the browser window for cogtutor.jnlp. Click “Keep” when prompted to keep the file:
Note: If cogtutor.jnlp does not appear at the bottom of your browser, check your Downloads folder.
3. Click cogtutor.jnlp again, then click “Open” to launch the software.
What can administrators do?
Administrators may contact the Carnegie Learning support team to request Cognitive Tutor LITE or MATHia LITE be enabled for their school. The LITE versions provide the same personalized instruction as Cognitive Tutor Prime and MATHia, however they run as Java webstarted applications outside the browser.
