SMART Board™ Interactive Whiteboard Basics
This Quick Reference Guide provides an overview of the information you need to begin using a SMART Board interactive
whiteboard. Before you begin, make sure the appropriate SMART Board software has been loaded on your computer. For
more information, refer to you SMART Board User’s Guide.
Starting the SMART Board Interactive Whiteboard
1 Ensure the interactive whiteboard and projector are connected to the computer.
2 Turn on the projector, then the computer. The interactive whiteboard draws power from the computer and is activated
automatically. You will know the whiteboard has power when the Ready Light turns red.
Depending on the model of SMART Board interactive whiteboard you are using, the Ready Light is either located
on the right side of the pen tray or the lower-right of the frame bezel.

3 Log on, if required, using the computer keyboard. When the Ready Light on the pen tray turns green, the computer and
the interactive whiteboard have established communication. The whiteboard is now touch sensitive, and you can open
any application available on the connected computer.
Orienting the SMART Board Interactive Whiteboard
You should orient your interactive whiteboard when setting it up, or if either the projector or interactive whiteboard has been
moved since you last used it.
1 Press and hold the circled pen tray buttons simultaneously until the orientation interface appears.

2 Begin orientation at the upper-left corner. Press your finger squarely in the center of each red cross in the order indicated
by the white, diamond-shaped background.
Your Finger Is Your Mouse
A press on a SMART Board interactive whiteboard is the same as a left-click with a mouse. To
open an application such as an Internet browser, simply double-press the application with your
Writing and Erasing Notes
To write over your desktop image or application, pick up one of the pens from the pen tray and
write on the interactive whiteboard. To write in a different color, pick up a different pen. The
color recognition comes from the optical sensors in the pen-tray slots and not from the pens
Pick up the eraser from the pen tray and move it in a smooth motion over your notes to erase them.
The interactive whiteboard only recognizes the last tool removed from the pen tray. For example, if you already have
a pen in your hand when you pick up the eraser, the interactive whiteboard will assume you want to erase, regardless of
whether you touch the board with a pen or an eraser. To avoid confusion, return each tool to its proper slot when you have
finished writing.
Saving Your Notes
You can easily save the notes you have written on the interactive whiteboard for future reference.
1 Pick up a pen from the pen tray and the Floating Tools toolbar will appear.
If the Floating Tools toolbar does not appear when you pick up a pen, the application you are
working in may be Ink Aware. If the application is Ink Aware, these buttons
Floating Tools Toolbar
will be available in the application’s own toolbar.
2 To save a selected area of your notes, press the camera icon on the toolbar. Then press and drag
your finger, using the marquee, to outline the area you want to capture.
The camera button in Ink Aware applications will capture an image of your entire screen.
3 A copy of Notebook™ software will automatically open. More information on Notebook software is outlined below.
4 Select Notebook software from your taskbar to view your notes.
NOTE: If you want to save your Notebook file, select File > Save
before closing the Notebook file.
Notebook Software
Notebook software acts as an electronic notebook that can be used to edit, save and distribute information
written on a SMART Board interactive whiteboard. Open Notebook software by pressing Start > Programs >
SMART Board Software > SMART Notebook.
