SMART Boards

SMART Board interactive whiteboards are available in the Albertson building in rooms 101, 102, 201 and 204. Notebook Software acts as an electronic notebook that can be used to edit, save and distribute information written on a SMART Board interactive whiteboard.

Software
Software is preloaded on the classroom computers. If you would like to install this software on your laptop please visit the SMART Technologies to download it directly.

Controlling Projected Applications
Use your finger the same way you would use the mouse to control applications on the SMART Board interactive whiteboard. For tasks that require a double-click, press the whiteboard twice in rapid succession. For tasks that require a right-click, press the Right Mouse button on the pen tray. Your next press will be recognized as a right-click. You can also press and hold the area of the screen you would like the interactive whiteboard to recognize as a right-click.

Controlling a PowerPoint Presentation
When you run PowerPoint software in Slide Show view on the SMART Board interactive whiteboard, you can control your presentation using the three-button Slide Show toolbar. You can also use the touch shortcut described below.
  1. Open PowerPoint software and your presentation.
  2. Select View > Slide Show. The Slide Show toolbar will appear.
  3. To move backward or forward through the presentation, use the arrows on the Slide Show toolbar. You can also advance to the next slide by pressing the whiteboard twice, making sure the second press is to the right of the first. To go back one slide, press the whiteboard twice, making sure the second press is to the left of the first.
  4. To make annotations on a PowerPoint slide, pick up a pen from the SMART Pen Tray and write over the slide.

Writing and Erasing Annotations
Pick up a pen from the pen tray to write on the interactive whiteboard. DO NOT USE ANY OTHER TYPE OF PEN OR MARKER ON THE BOARD. You can write over the desktop or any open application. When writing, press firmly and consistently on the whiteboard and avoid resting your hand on the surface. The cursor will reappear when you return the pen to the pen tray and you’ll regain touch control. If you return the pen to the pen tray without capturing the annotation, your annotation will disappear the next time you touch the screen. Saving annotations is covered in the next section.
Pick up the eraser from the pen tray. Move the eraser in a smooth motion over your annotations to erase them. The interactive whiteboard only recognizes the last tool removed from the pen tray. For example, if you already have a pen in your hand when you pick up the eraser, the whiteboard will assume you want to erase.

Saving Your Annotations
You can save the annotations that you have written on the interactive whiteboard for future reference.
  1. Picking up a pen from the pen tray causes the Tools toolbar to appear. You can now save annotations to a Notebook file. Note: If the Floating Tools toolbar does not appear when picking up a pen, the application you are working in may not be Ink Aware. If the application is Ink Aware, these buttons will be available in the toolbar.
  2. To save a selected area of your notes, press the camera icon on the toolbar. Then press and drag your finger to outline the area you want captured. The camera button in Ink Aware applications will capture the selection.
  3. Select Notebook software from Open>Programs to view your notes. If you want to save your notes select File>Save before closing the Notebook file.
