Interactive whiteboards are fast becoming the centrepiece of boardrooms. Flexible, easy to use and pro-productive, whiteboard technology transforms meetings and training sessions into dynamic, interesting and memorable occasions. Not only do they save you time and money, you can connect with anybody anywhere in the world and do more than you could imagine. Let’s take a look at some of the whiteboard tools available to you on Notebook.
A floating menu appears on the whiteboard as soon as you start using the digital pen. It is unobtrusive and, as the name suggests, can be moved to an area of the interactive whiteboard that suits you. The menu allows you to save what you have put on the whiteboard, either as the entire screen or an area of it that you have chosen. This cuts down on the need to refer between the whiteboard and the PC, allowing for a much smoother session to be held. The floating menu also allows you to make changes to the digital pen presently in use, such as the size of the line drawn and the colour of the virtual ink.
Setting up your presentation on the SMART board is made easy with the floating menu. Whilst the SMART board tools and applications make creating a presentation fast and easy, all software packages can be used on the virtual whiteboard. No matter what software you have used to create your documents with they can be incorporated into your presentation or webinar.
The SMART Board software on the PC has an emphasis on fast and user friendly tools to make editing and distributing files simple. It has never been so easy to create, save and share. The software application allows you to convergence all types of documents whether you created them using the whiteboard or blending data in from another software application. All documents you create can then easily be shared with other delegates by email.
In cases where users will be attending a one off SMART board whiteboard session there is no need to install any software. The SMART website offers an online facility, Notebook Express, for attendees to use and access the presentation session. The functionality is the same, which allows the user to both save and interact with the presentation. Not only that, the service is free therefore reducing your overall costs by using SMART technologies. However, frequent users are advised to adopt the full, installed version of the software to gain the maximum benefit from the system.
SMART Notebook tools work on all platforms and devices used in the present day work environment, and are therefore developed to cater for touchscreen technology. Notebook is compatible with Microsoft Office so you can continue to work with applications you are familiar with and integrate them into your Notebook presentations. Using SMART Notebook software could not be easier – yet it is so powerful it really gives your presentations a cutting edge.
