NoteBoard
noteboard – engage and inter act with learner response systems
Promethean’s NoteBoard Application seamlessly integrates with Promethean’s award-winning Learner
Response Systems. Engage the audience and allow them to participate in a NoteBoard brainstorming
sessions using ActivExpression or ActivEngage.

Virtual device
noteboard - set ting up a learner response system
To set up a Promethean ActivExpression Learner Response System you need to connect an ActivHub to
your computer. For ActivEngage virtual devices you connect to ActivHub in the ActivEngage software.
First, you have to register the ActivExpression devices with the ActivHub. Each ActivExpression has to
be registered once. The ActivHub will automatically recognise the Registered ActivExpression when
using them again. It is recommended to register the ActivExpressions with ActivHub in advance of using
NoteBoard. This will allow the audience to engage straight away with NoteBoard.
To find out how to set up a Promethean Learner Response System, please visit:
