Using the SMART Kapp IQ
The SMART Kapp IQ is the new improved interactive whiteboard made by SMART Technologies. The
Kapp IQ has a whiteboard feature similar to a regular SMART Board, and several new features.




Built in Browser app
Built in whiteboard app that can be written on and shared by up to 250 simultaneous
users
Built in links to SMART portals
No need for a projector
You don’t need a computer or projector for the Kapp IQ to work, however, there are HDMI ports if you
prefer to connect it to a computer.
Getting Started
If the Kapp IQ is turned off, press the switch on the power strip located on the back of the board. Wait a
few minutes as the Kapp IQ turns on and goes through its welcome screen. The board will show
directions on how to write and erase on it. You may skip these by touching the board.
If the switch on the back of the board is already turned on but the screen is black, the board is in
standby mode. To exit standby mode manually, press the moon button on the bottom-left of the board.
Note: to enter standby mode manually, press the moon button twice. The board will automatically enter
standby mode if it has not detected movement and will automatically exit standby mode when it does
detect movement. The moon turns orange.
Using the Whiteboard
Writing and Erasing in Whiteboard Mode
You can write with either the red or black pen. These are the only two colors available, but you
can write simultaneously with both pens. Erase the digital ink by using the eraser end of the
pen or by using your hand as shown in the picture below. Use either the side or palm of your
hand to erase.
Note: Loose clothing or body parts will also erase if they touch the board, so be careful.

If you need more space to write other than what is currently viewable, simply use your finger to scroll to
the left. “More” whiteboard will only show up by scrolling to the left, but you are able to scroll back to
the right to see what you have already written.
Saving Notes and Accessing Previously Saved Notes
As you write on the board, you are able to save your notes so that you can access them at a future date.
To save what you have written on the Whiteboard, simply touch the save icon in the bottom right corner
of the whiteboard screen.
When you click the save icon, the following screen will display:
You can either save the whiteboard or discard it, if you wish. You can also cancel out of that screen if
you have changed your mind.
To retrieve notes from a previous session after they’ve been saved, touch the thumbnail icon in the
bottom right corner of the whiteboard screen.
The following screen will appear:

Touch the white part of each individual saved note icon to open it back up in the whiteboard app.
Touching the check box on one of multiple saved screens allows you to delete those saved notes.
Sharing the Whiteboard using the SMART Kapp app
A unique feature of the Kapp IQ is that the whiteboard can be shared and manipulated by multiple
users. Users are able to view what’s on the board on their personal device and can also write on it or
erase it from their device. If students don’t have access to a tablet/iPad/SMART phone, they can view it
on a computer or laptop. This is helpful if the participants are in another location other than where the
board is located.
Use the SMART Kapp app to begin the process of sharing the whiteboard contents.
The “owner” of the session will need to do the following:
 Open the SMART Kapp app on their mobile device
 Hold the mobile device over the QR code in the lower left
corner of the SMART Kapp board to connect to the board
 Share the board with other users to collaborate on the board by
sending them a link to join the session, either to their contacts or
via email.
Once scanned, the contents of the board will appear on the device and will look similar to this:

A menu will be displayed at the bottom of the screen.
Click the person symbol to invite others to join by sending them a link to the board. Choose
“Send Link” and you will be prompted to send via email or a text message through your
contacts (if you’re using your Smartphone).
Once users connect to the board, they will see a panel on their device that allows them to write or erase
on the board. Users can either follow the host as the host scrolls through the whiteboard, or users can
view different parts of the whiteboard at their own pace.
To write or erase on the board from your mobile device, click the pen symbol. On this screen, choose
the red or black pen to write additional notes on the whiteboard. To erase, click the eraser. Click the
hand to scroll and move the board in order to have more room to write.

Notice that in the bottom-left, where the QR code is on the SMART Kapp, you can now see how many
devices are connected to the board.
Saving Notes on Devices
To save notes on a connected device, simply press the
camera button in the app. It will
save a screenshot of what the whiteboard looks like at that time. To retrieve previously saved
notes, simply touch the
symbol on the bottom-right of the main screen.
From here, you can select which whiteboard you would like to view.

Using the Internet Browser
Getting Started:
You will notice there is a gray line at the bottom of the whiteboard screen, right above the pens.
Click the line to make the menu appear. Select the Google Chrome logo that says “Browser”. This will
open a new browser on the board.
When you touch the address bar or any field in which you need to type, a keyboard will appear. By
holding and dragging the symbol in the top-left corner of the keyboard, you are able to drag the
keyboard to reposition it. Use the keyboard to navigate to a web page.

You may go to any website, just as you can on a computer, by using the keyboard to type the address.
For special keys such as : or /, click the 123 key to change the keyboard.
Note: you will not be able to view documents on the Kapp IQ. Since there is no computer connected to
the board, there is no location for a document to be downloaded to. If you need to access documents,
you can connect a computer to the SMART Kapp via HDMI and download the documents to the
computer, which will display on the board. For example, you can go to Blackboard and view your
Blackboard course, but if you would like to download your syllabus, you will not be able to because it’s a
file that needs to be downloaded to a computer.
Connecting a Computer to the SMART Kapp Board
To connect a computer, plug an HDMI cable into the HDMI output on your computer and then into the
port on the back of the SMART Kapp board. To change the board’s input, touch the button that has an
arrow on the bottom-left of the SMART Kapp. The first time you touch it, it will display the input
options. To scroll down to the next input option, touch that same arrow button again. Continue to
touch it until the correct HDMI input is highlighted.
The board also recognizes sound from the computer. In order to enable the sound, plug in the USB
cable to the computer, and make sure the other end is plugged into the port on the back of the board
that corresponds to the port that the computer is connected to. In the example image below, the
computer is connected to the HDMI 2 port on the back of the board, so the USB needs to be plugged
into the same HDMI 2 section of the controller.

Switching to Another Input
When you are ready to switch back to the whiteboard, click the arrow button again and scroll to “OPS
HDMI”.
Note: When you are on the HDMI input and viewing the computer screen on the SMART Kapp screen,
you will not be able to use the touch feature on the board; it simply displays what is on the computer
screen.
Using SMART Notebook Software- Enabling the Touch Features
This board also functions like a typical SMARTBoard. In order to use the interactivity from the board,
you need to have a computer attached to the board that has the SMART Notebook software installed on
it. Once the software is installed, you can use the Notebook software just like you would on any other
board, or you have the option to interact with the board using the SMART Ink tools in the Microsoft
Office suite of software. As you browse the internet, you can also interact with the board by scrolling up
and down or even using the “pinch” method to enlarge the website like you would do on a tablet.
SMART Activities
SMART Kapp has numerous built in activities that allow interaction with the board. Select Activities
from the menu. Activities will automatically launch a browser and will display various categories with
games and activities for each subject.
