Setting up your eInstruction Touch Board
1) Download the getting started guide
Updating your software and hardware
A step by step guide to making sure that all your hardware and software is up to date. You will find that this will eliminate most technical issues. To download a pdf of these instructions click here.
1) Update Workspace software to the latest version downloadable from here
2) Then update the content gallery also downloadable from above link
3) Open the Workspace software, go to the gallery and click on it > build the gallery (this will install all the content)
4) Check for the device manager symbol in your tray (bottom right on PC's / top right on Mac). If it isn’t there, go to programs > einstruction > device manager and it will re-appear
5) Open the device manager and connect to the board and pad (make sure both are turned on!)
Bluetooth devices - Schoolboard (has a black dongle on top) and SchoolPad (is a blue pad)
7) If you don’t connect (i.e. see a green tick) then you may need to configure your PC’s Bluetooth. Instructions for configuring HP and Toshiba here. If your Mac is not loading the device manager go here.
RF Devices – board has grey or white dongle and the pad is called the Mobi and is white
8) You need to update the firmware (i.e. the board, pad and dongle devices themselves) Instructions here – make sure that you have the dongle plugged in to the PC as well as the Mobi and Board attached via USB – it will then check for Firmware updates on all 3 devices
9) Your devices should then connect – i.e. have green ticks next to them.
Boards connected via USB
10) They should connect once steps 1-5 have been completed – if there is a problem, try switching to a different USB cable – sometimes the USB cables can break over time.
11) Once connected put the pen on the pad / board and check if it is working. If nothing happens, check the pen on a pad or board that you know does work and then you will know that it is a battery problem, rather than a connection problem. Charge it overnight and try again. If it still doesn’t work you will need to contact us for a replacement.
12) An information sheet on caring for your pens can be downloaded here.
