FAQ regarding the pricing changes for SMART Technologies and Notebook software:

  1. You can still use your equipment without an upgraded license. However, upgrades and toll-free telephone support for SMART Notebook software are no longer offered at no charge from SMART Technologies for current users. For new purchases, upgrades and technical support are included for one year. For existing customers, or after one year, in order to obtain software upgrades and support, you will need a SMART Notebook Advantage license.
  2. SMART Technologies introduced SMART Notebook 2014 last April. In addition to new features in Notebook, Notebook 2014 also includes “bundled content”, that was previously available at an additional charge.
  3. The following content is bundled, at no charge, with Notebook 2014:

    • SMART Response VE (Virtual Edition) interactive response software – this is the same software used with SMART Response “clickers”, but allows any Internet-enabled device to serve as the responder or “clicker.”
    • SMART 3D warehouse
    • Geogebra, which replaces SMART Notebook Math Tools and adds even deeper and broader math content
  4. SMART Notebook Advantage licenses are available on a per-classroom basis, or on a site license basis, for terms from one (1) year to three (3) years. A site consists of any number of complete buildings – a site does not have to be your entire district.
  5. This discount is available through the end of 2014.
  6. Kansas City Audio-Visual will assist you in determining whether a single-license option or site-license option is more economical for you.
