Smart Notebook App for Ipad Announced

Rumours of this app were leaked last week, then it all went quiet, so its good to see that there’s now an official announcement on the EdCompass blog. From this summer, teachers and students will be able to use SMART Notebook software on an iPad using the SMART Notebook app.

Using the SMART Notebook app, it will be possible to use many of the tools typically used on the SMART Board. It will be possible to open SMART Notebook file on their iPad, from an e-mail or site such as Dropbox, and write, erase, add text, move objects and insert images.

The app will be AirPlay enabled and so will supports AirPlay for Apple TV to share iPad screens.

More info is on the EdCompass Blog and also check this area of the Smart Website over the next few months.

I’m looking forward to finding out more!

  1. Must it run through Apple TV?

  2. I would guess you can also display the app via a VGA connector cable.

  3. Or you could display via AirPlay using either AirServer application or Reflection, both are Mac/PC applications that allowing displaying AirPlay content to your computer, which is probably already connected to a data projector. Very nice solutions. AirServer has a free 7 day trial, and does allow multiple iOS devices to be displayed in a tiled view – nice when showing/comparing various student work. Both apps are around $15. Both worked well for me on a MacBook Air, but I found AirServer to be a little more robust. Both also allows audio to be sent, so if you want to mirror your iPad to your projector through your desktop or laptop computer wirelessly, these are MUCH cheaper than AppleTV, plus allows you to still transition back and forth between programs on your computer!
