Tips For Smart Board Use
- Wait 30 seconds or so before attempting to log into a lab computer after waking the computer from sleep.
- To capture an image from the document camera onto the SMART Board, click the button from inside the SMART Notebook software.
- If the computer image is off-center on the SMART Board, try using the podium touch panel to change the SMART Board source to DVD and then back to PC again. This should allow the SMART Board to readjust to your desktop's resolution.
- When writing on the board with a SMART pen, you can erase a mistake quickly using the side of your hand, just as you might do on a dry-erase board. But be careful, sometimes a baggie shirt sleeve can erase your writing accidentally.
