The PowerTeacher Gradebook Launch installers provide you with a way to distribute a new launch method for the Gradebook that protects teachers from Java updates. It also includes a desktop shortcut that allows teachers to login to the Gradebook directly. Teachers with access to install and run files on their computers can complete the quick setup themselves. Or you can access the installers to help with their deployment.
