Deployment information for the Microsoft Interactive Classroom


This article provides guidance for users deploying Interactive Classroom into their school environments.

More Information

Configuring Interactive Classroom for user accounts without administrator rights

After you install Interactive Classroom, you will have to configure Windows Firewall and Windows Access Control List settings for users who do not have accounts that have administrator rights. Without these settings, teachers cannot broadcast an Interactive Classroom session, and students cannot view the session in Microsoft Office OneNote. For more information, view the Interactive Classroom Configuration guide.

Performance and Scalability guidance

Microsoft Interactive Classroom sessions enable communication between teachers and students over your local network. The number of Interactive Classroom sessions that you can support over a network may be limited, depending on your network's capacity to transfer data. We recommend limiting the number of computers that are connected to an Interactive Classroom session, depending on your wireless network bandwidth. Interactive Classroom can support up to 50 computers that are connected to a single access point with throughput greater than 300 megabits per second (Mbps). However, the recommendation is to connect only 10 to 15 computers per access point if you are using 54 Mbps wireless routers.

Installing Interactive Classroom on non-English versions of Microsoft Office 2010

When Interactive Classroom is installed on a non-English version of Office 2010, you may encounter an error when you try to join an Interactive Classroom session from OneNote. The error message is as follows:

PowerPoint content can't be displayed. Ensure that the notebook you have selected is available, that you have permissions to edit it, and that the notebook is in either the OneNote 2007 or OneNote 2010 format.

When it is available, OneNote 2010 Service Pack 1 may resolve this error.
