The EEGer Online Practicum utilizes special session files that must be installed onto the EEGer system. These files allow live sessions to be ran on the system with preconfigured session plans and client files. These special EKC files will be sent to attendees prior to the first EOP session, and should be installed immediately. If these files are not installed ahead of time, it may prevent the attendee from being able to participate alongside the course.

Installing EKC Files in Remote Training Mode (EEGer Training Kit)

If using a Clinical EEGer system, please follow the instructions under Installing EKC Files with a Clinical EEGer System before attempting these steps.
  1. Download the four EKC files and save them to the computer's Desktop or Downloads folder.

  2. Connect the EEGer dongle to the computer. The dongle must remained connected throughout the process of install EKC files.

  3. Open EEGer and navigate to Client>Remote-use Options>Install a new EEGer remote-use client (.EKC) from the top toolbar of EEGer's main screen.

  1. In the File Explorer window that appears, navigate to your computer’s Desktop or Downloads folder and select an EKC file saved in Step 1

  2. After a moment, a confirmation message will appear. This Client ID can now be used for live sessions.

  3. Repeat Steps 3-5 until all four EKC files are installed.

In total, there will be four EKC files. All four files must be installed onto the system.
  • EOPMiniMap_0000000000.EKC
  • EOPC3-A1_0000000000.EKC
  • EOPC4-A2_0000000000.EKC
  • EOPC3-C4_0000000000.EKC
The 0000000000 section will be filled with a string of numbers, but the file name prior to this is unique to each file. If a file is accidentally installed twice, a warning message will appear that the file has already been installed. If this happens, simply move on to installing the next file until all four unique files installed.
