Notebook Express is, as they call it, is "a lightweight version of SMART Notebook software." SMART Tech has created this online version so . With this web app, there is no need to create a log in to use it so your students can simply click on a link to it and begin. Because of the small number of tools it is fairly clutter free and could be a great tool for students to use to take notes, brainstorm ideas, outline presentations, and more. They can even save the files to their computer to use later. Another benefit of SMART Notebook Express is allowing student access to SMART Notebook files when they are away from school or machines with the software loaded on them. They can download a SMART Notebook file from your website, or other online location, and can log into Notebook Express and open it there. There are fewer tools and no Gallery but if uploading an existing SMART Notebook file all objects (even the interactive Flash items) will be there ready to be manipulated.
The biggest benefit...there is no log-in required and no software to download - all you need is Internet access.
