What is a Smart Board?  

The Smart Board is an interactive whiteboard that uses touch detection like a tablet or iPad. We have the Smart Board software and Smart Board Notebook software free for all faculty, staff and students to use at Minnesota State University, Mankato. You need 3 things to make the smart boards work: a smart board in the room, the smart board software, and a receiver (this is usually attached to a USB extension in the classrooms on campus). 

** Currently we only have licenses for Smart Notebook version 11 and Mac iOS Yosemite (10.10) is not compatible with Notebook version 11. Notebook 14 licenses coming SOON! **
