Vernier’s Technical Information Library (TIL) was named ‘Best Help Site Portal’ by readers of Tech & Learning, the premier publication for education technology leaders.
The portal houses an extensive library of technical information, troubleshooting advice, answers to questions frequently asked by teachers, and more than 1,000 searchable technology tips. The Vernier TIL is a part of a collection of comprehensive resources that Vernier provides, which include step-by-step tutorials, a purchasing guide, Tech Tips videos produced by Vernier product developers, and free personalized training webinars for schools and districts.
The TIL is just one of many ways Vernier provides uniquely remarkable customer service. The company offers free hands-on training across the country, which allows educators to learn about probeware in a way that is fun and engaging. In addition, when you call Vernier for technical support, you will always speak to a live person. Most times, in fact, you will speak with the person who developed the product or with a fellow educator who has experience teaching with probeware in the classroom.
