New Notebook Advantage Features – An Update
Right before the winter break, we initiated a conversation about Notebook Advantage on our blog and we’re back with an important update.
As we have already announced, SMART will introduce Notebook Advantage in April, an annual subscription that offers more interactive features and functionality as well as maintenance and support. Subscribing to Notebook Advantage is completely optional – SMART Notebook users can continue using Notebook exactly as they do today, at no additional cost.
Now here’s what’s new: SMART is bringing Notebook users new options for making lessons more engaging and interactive. Those who choose to enhance their software experience with Notebook Advantage will gain access to:
- Advanced Math Tools functionality for both Windows and Mac classrooms available for SMART Notebook software with new Geogebra integration
- Rich formative assessment with SMART Response VE for students using mobile devices
- Ink editing for teaching English and humanities
- The XC collaborative brainstorming tool for 1:1 and BYOD classrooms
- 3D Tools and many more exciting new features to come
And these latest additions to the Notebook Advantage plan have already been well-received! Here is what one customer shared with us yesterday.
“Looking at SMART software products independently, I honestly would have not been able to afford them. Now that SMART Notebook Math Tools (for both platforms), XC Add-on for SMART Notebook and the SMART Response VE subscription are all included with Notebook Advantage, it adds tremendous value and affordability that was not possible before. I am now extremely excited about being able to have an entire instructional toolkit at my teachers’ disposal.”
