Computer Rights versus Capabilities in Renaissance Place

The rights/permissions/access you have on a specific computer are separate from the capabilities you have within Renaissance Place.

  • Administrative rights on an individual computer are part of your school's computer security policy. For more information, see your school's IT Department/ICT Support.
  • Capabilities give you the right to perform specific tasks in the Renaissance Place software.

Supporting Software

Many Renaissance Place programs require supporting software programs, such as a PDF reader to print reports. The supporting software must be installed on each individual computer used to work with Renaissance Place programs.

The rights you are given for a specific computer determine

  • whether you can install supporting software programs on that computer
  • if the installed supporting software program is available to all users of that computer, or just you

If some of the software that you need to use Renaissance Place is not installed, or is outdated, you or your students may see messages about the missing software.
