A SMART Board interactive whiteboard combines the simplicity (and cleanliness) of a whiteboard with the power and versatility of a computer. SMART Boards use touch-sensitive displays that connect to a computer (usually an instructor station). Applications can be controlled directly from the display. Instructors can create annotations to their software applications or other notes, which can be captured and stored for later retrieval by the instructor or the students (if the notes are uploaded to a student-accessible location such as Blackboard).
SMART Boards are especially handy when used in conjunction with PowerPoint presentations, PDF documents, and web sites.
