SMART Notebook

Using SMART Notebook software on a SMART Board rather than another device provides a few additional resources. 

If you open SMART Notebook on the SMART Board in the Production Lab, Rm. 325, (or any other SMART Board), you can find additional content in the gallery.

To open the gallery in SMART Notebook, find the button along the left hand side of the window.

By opening up the Gallery Essentials folder, you are presented with a bunch of options.


Go into the "Arts" folder and then into the "Music" folder.

Under the "Instruments" tab, you will find pictures of various instruments, pictures with accopanying sounds of various instruments, and a stage. Under "Music Notes", there are two options: Music Notes & Paper - Large and Music Notes & Paper - Small. In these folders are notes, rests, clefs, and many more. There are also staffs that you could use as a notebook page that consist of one or multiple bars. These images and activities can be added to enhance your SMART Notebook lesson. 

The Gallery Essentials cannot be accessed on other campus computers that may have SMART Notebook that are not connected to a SMART Board. However, if you were to save a notebook file and open it on another computer, those items already in the notebook would still work as before.
