SMART Notebook™ 11 software
SMART Notebook™ collaborative learning software provides the tools to create and deliver
engaging, interactive learning experiences across grades, subjects and learning styles.
This document summarizes the new features in SMART Notebook 11 software.
User interface enhancements
Using the new toolbar
SMART Notebook 11 software introduces a new toolbar. The new toolbar organizes buttons into
panels and makes some previously obscure features more visible in the user interface:
When you click one of the buttons in the Tools panel, the Contextual panel appears. The buttons in
the Contextual panel enable you to create and format objects using the selected tool.
Displaying Full Screen view page borders
Before you display a page in Full Screen view, select View > Full Screen Page Border, and then
select the appropriate aspect ratio for your interactive product. A blue line appears, indicating the
portion of the page that will appear in Full Screen view without scrolling.
This feature is useful when you’re creating content that you want to present in Full Screen view.

New presentation features
Using Internet browsers
You can now insert Internet browsers in .notebook files, use them to display websites and manipulate
them like any other object.
Using the Activity Builder
The Activity Builder enables you to create matching activities, sorting activities, labeling activities,
games and more using your own content.
Using the Activity Builder, you define one object on the page as an activity object. You then define
which objects on the page will be accepted and which will be rejected when you drag the objects over
the activity object.
Resetting pages
In previous versions of SMART Notebook software, you could clear all objects or all digital ink
objects from a page. In SMART Notebook 11 software, you can also reset a page to the state it was
in when it was last saved and before you made changes to it.
New digital ink features
