The Smart Board was developed by Smart Technologies which is a publicly traded company based in the city of Calgary in Alberta, Canada. The first Smart Board was introduced in 1991 and has become the frontrunner in the interactive whiteboard category in the United States, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Canada.

The Smart Board is an interactive whiteboard that is used in schools across the globe to make teaching easier and more accessible for the staff. The Smart Boards enlist the aid of a projector which creates a touch screen whiteboard that presents programs and images from a computer. The advanced capabilities of this software enable teachers to not only show students helpful programs online through one computer but it also allows colleagues to work on projects in different locations.

This is done through Windows NetMeeting which permits a number of users from various locations to participate in a project. Everyone included has the ability to cut and paste items, drag and drop certain folders or update the project. In addition, if you would like to show a presentation to your class that is from a separate location, you can do so through the Smart Board.

The interactive whiteboard is very easy to use. It provides a keyboard and you can use your hand as a mouse due to the touch screen features. You can switch back and forth from the mouse to the keyboard by simply pressing the corresponding button on the Smart Board. Moreover, there are a number of interactive programs you can use including standard internet browsers such as Internet Explorer and Netscape. You also have the choice of Office programs including Microsoft Office, Star Office Suites and WordPerfect Office.  In addition to this, you have access to email through programs such as Outlook Express, Pegasus and Eudora.

To create a faster way for teachers to teach up on the board. For example, with the black board or the regular dry erase board, you can only write what you know on it. But with the smart board, teachers can type up what they want to teach to their class at night, but then select the file in the morning and then show it t the whole class and explain it. So you see, it just makes it easier on teachers, and sometimes,buisness people! But all for the same people.
