What is it and why should I be using it?
If you have looked at the planning on this website, you will notice that Mozaik3D appears in nearly EVERY single topic. That's because that particular app is INCREDIBLE and brings history to life like no other tool does! Just take a look at the video on the right to see the kinds of 3D models that you can use within your own classroom...
Mozaik3D in action
But Mozaik3D is just one single part of an amazing program called mozaBook, which is Mozaik Education's Interactive Whiteboard presentation software. If you feel like the software you have at the minute hasn't changed in years, then take a look at this video for my demonstration of some of mozaBook's most amazing features...

The clip on the right tells you how to access Mozaik3D and how to use some of it's features, or read the walkthrough underneath.
Mozaik3D can be accessed on Android, iOS or Windows, so use the device that you want it to be loaded onto.
If using Android/iOS, go to the Play/App Store and search for 'Mozaik3D' and install for free. On desktop, go to:
www.mozaweb.com/mozaik3D and download the 3D viewer for free.
On Android/iOS, load the app. For desktop, click on the '3D' tab at the top of the page. You can now access 3D scenes that are marked as 'Free' by having an orange and white present symbol in the corner of them.
To access ANY of the 3D scenes, you need to create a free account using just an email address. This can be done by pressing the 'Login' button on either the app or the website and clicking on 'Create New Account'.
Once you have created an account, you can login on whichever device you are using it on and then you will be able to access ANY 5 scenes each week. Your allowance will reset each Sunday ready for the next week.

The clip on the right tells you how to access mozaBook and how to use some of it's features, or read the walkthrough underneath.
mozaBook for teachers only works on Windows so you will need to be using either a desktop or laptop that has Windows installed.
Go to the website www.mozaweb.com/mozabook and click on the green 'Download' button. Then click on the next green 'Download' button.
To download it, you need to create a free account using just an email address, so click on 'Login' and either login with your details or click on 'Create New Account'. Personally I would recommend installing with the 'Full-size Installer' (select underneath.)
Once you have downloaded it, you can install it. This may take a few minutes if you have chosen the Full-size Installer. If you have chosen the Minimum-size Installer then the rest of the program will download itself when you open mozaBook for the first time.
Open mozaBook and you will be met with a screen asking you to either login or to create a new account. As you had to create an account to download it, you already have one, so click on 'Add Existing Account'.
You will need your username and password which you can find from your account details on www.mozaweb.com (your username is usually a mix of your first and last name and some random letters at the end of it.)
You will then be asked to create a 'Local User'. mozaBook allows for multiple users to create profiles on a single computer so that they can load up their own resources and profiles regardless of which computer they log onto. Add your details again and setup should then be complete.
Downloading mozaBook like this will give you a 30-day free trial. After 30 days, you will still be able to access some of the features of mozaBook, but the majority of features will be disabled. You WILL NOT be automatically charged after 30 days as you have not entered any payment information.
Click on the 'Create New Exercise Book' button to start. You can then begin adding text and images to support your teaching like you would with any other Interactive Whiteboard software.

A tiny handful of tools from mozaBook
To access Mozaik3D without restriction, you will need a subscription. There are lots of different subscription models available on the website for different materials, resources and people, but if you JUST want the 3D scenes for you as the teacher, then you need a mozaWeb Premium Teacher subscription here:
At the time of writing this (August 2020), a single subscription is 40 Euros per person per year. (Invoices CAN be supplied in GBP if requested.) This means that each teacher who has a subscription can login and have unrestricted access to the 3D scenes. If you had, for example, 6 teachers who all wanted their own subscription, you would need 6 licenses. If there are 10 or more licenses needed, you can take advantage of a multibuy discount and buy the 'Pack' which is currently only 40 Euros per teacher per year.
This type of subscription will lift the '5 scenes each week' restriction on your account. Once you have this subscription, simply login with your account details on either desktop or the app and you should be able to open as many 3D scenes as you like.
As an added bonus, this subscription also gives you access to a wide variety of the Tools and Games included in mozaBook through your mozaWeb account on desktop or laptop. Simply login into your account on www.mozaweb.com and click on the 'Tools' tab at the top to start using and creating various types of resources.

To access mozaBook without restriction, you will need a subscription. There are different subscriptions available, some for teachers and some for students. For teachers, you will need the mozaBook CLASSROOM subscription here:
A single subscription will give you access to mozaBook on one computer or interactive whiteboard if Windows is built into it. If your board is connected to your computer then just install it onto the computer.
At the time of writing this (August 2020), a single subscription (license) is 198 Euros per device per year. (Invoices CAN be supplied in GBP if requested.) If you want this, for example, on 6 devices, you would need 6 licenses.
If there are 10 or more licenses needed, you can take advantage of a multibuy discount and buy the 'Pack' which is currently only 118 Euros per device per year.
You will then be sent license codes to enter into mozaBook to activate it and remove any restrictions. This can be done within mozaBook by loading it up, and on the Login screen, either click on the 'Days Left' calendar icon or the sideways 'Mozaik' tab on the right hand side. You can then click on 'Enter License Code' and restrictions will be removed.
