SMART Podiums and SMART Boards allow instructors to use the SMART Notebook software to interact directly with either the monitor or the display screen for taking notes, capturing lecture materials, and otherwise providing a unique and dynamic learning experience for students.

Podiums and Boards are scattered around campus in a number of classrooms. A SMART Podium replaces the traditional monitor at the instructor station of a classroom with a more interactive pen and touch display. A SMART Board, on the other hand, replaces the traditional display projector screen in the classroom with a pen and touch display, making it much easier for the instructor to interact with the content of their presentation without having to stand at the instructor station.
