SimUText for High Schools?

SimBio's proprietary SimUText System was designed for college courses, but it is also successfully used at a small number of high schools where the subscription system and technology constraints are not issues. If your school can accommodate the constraints below, you are welcome to request a 1-academic-year high school evaluation account (see below).

1. Individual student subscriptions are required

Students must register online, and course-specific subscriptions (set up by instructors) must be purchased by or for each student. Most college instructors opt to have students purchase their own subscriptions; however, arrangements can be made for departmental purchase orders.

2. Many high schools have incompatible technology

  • SimUText does NOT run on iPads, hand-held devices, Chromebooks, or Netbooks with screens that are smaller than 1024 x 768 pixels.
  • SimUText requires Windows OS 7, 8, 8.1, 10 or / Mac OS 10.9, 10.10, 10.11, 10.12 .
  • For Macs, Intel Core processors are required for installation, and PowerPC hardware is NOT supported.
  • An active Internet connection is needed to log in and submit answers to the SimUText System.

High School Evaluation Accounts

If the above constraints and pricing systems do not rule out SimUText for your high school, we recommend that you explore modules using our free evaluation software. After we confirm some information via a short survey, we will set up an account that will give you access to our modules (for review purposes only!) for the current academic year.
