Dual-User Collaboration

On a SMART Board 800 series interactive whiteboard, two users can create and manipulate objects at the same time in SMART Notebook software. Users arenít restricted to specific areas of the interactive whiteboard screen.

In addition, if one user is using his or her finger and another is using a pen, each user can select a different tool in SMART Notebook software and specify different properties for selected objects in the Properties tab.

For more information, see Allowing Two People to Use a SMART Board 800 Series Interactive Whiteboard.

Calligraphic Pens Tool

The new Calligraphic Pens tool is like the Pens tool, but it smoothes your writing or drawing and produces lines of varying thickness. Itís useful for teaching students handwriting.

For more information, see Writing or Drawing Objects with the Calligraphic Pens Tool on a Page.

Becta Interactive Whiteboard Common File Format Support

The Becta Interactive Whiteboard Common File Format (CFF) enables you to create and use files across different interactive whiteboard programs, including SMART Notebook software. SMART Notebook 10.7 can import and export CFF files.
