Installing and activating
Start the installation by downloading the software from the SMART website. After you’ve downloaded and run the installer, you or the teacher need to activate the software.
If you are deploying SMART Notebook on multiple computers, refer to the SMART Notebook deployment guides.
For Windows operating systems, you can install SMART Notebook using the USB installer or the web-based installer. If you’re installing SMART Notebook on multiple computers, use the USB installer so you only have to download the installer once, saving you time. The USB installer is also for use if you’re installing SMART Notebook on a computer that doesn’t have internet. However, an internet connection is required for activating the software. To find the USB installer, go to smarttech.com/products/education-software/smart-learning-suite/admin-download
