SMART Board Support for Elon Teacher Ed

Resources on campus

SMART interactive whiteboards are available in Mooney 202 and 206 and in many Alamance-Burlington K-12 classrooms as well as other locations on Elon's campus. Computers in these rooms that are connected to the boards have the necessary drivers for the boards to be interactive and also have SMART's Notebook software on them.

Notebook 11 software is also installed on ALL computers in both Mooney labs, 201/Windows and 202/Mac, and you can download/install it on your own laptop (see instructions below). Lessons and activities created on other computers and saved as Notebook files can be used on any computer connected to a SMARTBoard as long as the computer connected to the board has the drivers and Notebook.

For additional help with SMART Boards, check the following:

Downloading Notebook software on your own computer

Due to recent changes in how SMART licenses Notebook software, you should NOT download anything higher than Notebook version 11.x if you want it to work beyond a limited trial period. If you download a higher-numbered version like 14, it will work for 90 days, but you will NOT be able to use an Elon-provided activation code to have it work beyond 90 days. Area P-12 schools are still using version 11 too.

Visit SMART Notebook in Elon's technology wiki for instructions on how to download and install a 30-day trial of SMART Notebook 11.x software and drivers on your own computer. Read the instructions all the way through before going to SMART's download site. From the wiki page, you as an Elon student or professor, can also obtain an activation key for Notebook 11.x or lower so that your use is not limited to 30 days. You can opt to download limited-time trials of other SMART products at the same time. Please understand that the activation key ONLY works for SMART Notebook 11.x or lower, not for any of the other programs as they require licensing we do not have.
