SMART Technologies' SMART Training Center (www.smarttech.com/trainingcenter/online) is offering free online orientation sessions to provide users of its interactive whiteboards with tutorials that teach whiteboard basics. Utilizing its Bridgit data-conferencing software, SMART instructors are able to provide brief step-by-step instructions and answers to participants' questions in real time. Two different half-hour orientation sessions are currently available: "SMART Board Interactive Whiteboard Basics," which covers writing on-screen in digital ink and capturing annotations made in computer applications; and "Notebook Software Basics," which covers basic functions such as using the toolbar, creating objects, and accessing clip art and templates. In addition to these free tutorials, the comprehensive online training center provides educators with various other resources, including downloadable training materials for Windows and Macintosh users.
