Create dynamic documents

Use the PublishView™ feature to add TI-Nspire™ applications, rich text, hyperlinks, images or videos and create interactive worksheets, lab reports and homework assignments.


Bring concepts into view

In addition to the normal computer view, you can also work on documents in the special handheld view, which shows documents as they appear on the TI-Nspire™ handheld display.


Share files with ease

Students can easily transfer work between their TI-Nspire™ handheld and computer to complete work outside of school, at home, or at the library.


Handheld-software bundle

Take home TI-Nspire™ Student Software and the TI-Nspire™ or TI-Nspire™ CX handheld together in a single package. Make an all-in-one purchase at your retailer.
