Noldus Observer Software: 2. Reserve USB key to activate software


A print copy of the manual is available in H230F.  An online version of the manual and additional video tutorials are included with the software.

USB Keys

You will need a USB key to activate the Noldus Observer software during every session. 

There are two USB Keys:

  • an administrative key that allows you to create new projects and set up coding schemes, as well as to code observations
  • a coding key that allows just for coding and visualization of data - this is the key used most frequently by research assistants

Reserve the appropriate key for up to four hours/day through (requires a Penn Vet login). 

Choose Facilities: Online-Virtual, Attendance 1, SetupType Virtual and choose the administrative or coding key.

After your reservation is confirmed, you can pick up the USB key at the desk in the Atwood Library.  Manuals are available for check out and as a computer file with the software.



Please note that the replacement cost for a missing USB key is $150.
