Many of us have heard about interactive white boards or "Smart Boards" but haven't yet had a chance to use them. One suggestion before starting use the Smart Board is to download the Smart Notebook software. This is the software that gets used on your Smart Board to create materials--text, image, videos, animations, games, etc. The Smart Notebook 11 software can be downloaded directly to your laptop or your PC. 30 day trials are available. Product codes are also available for North Shore Community College full and part time faculty, if you'd like to use for more than 30 days. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send you the link to a product code.
There are also some great short videos that will help get you started:

Of course, your Academic Technology department is here to help. Please contact me, Dave Houle, at email@example.com and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
Enjoy your Smart Board and Smart Notebook exploration.
