Smart Notebook 17 Info
Smart Notebook has undergone some new changes and will require a slight change in how you use it.
To start, they have incorporated cloud based services into their software. However, this also has made it so that you must now have a Smart Account and log into your software. To create and use an account, you must use your Google Apps For Education (GAFE) email address. (Xlastname@students.srsd119.ca)
In addition, they have separated out premium features with their standard version. A list of the premium features are listed here. If you wish to have the premium version, you must contact Tech Support Services (firstname.lastname@example.org) to get your GAFE email registered. Please include your GAFE Email when contacting Tech Support Services. This process must occur every year as the licenses are reset over the summer.
Here are the steps for users:
First, everyone should sign up for a Smart Notebook account to use the software (This only needs to be done once, ever.)
What if I don’t sign in?
-If you do not do the process as described in these instructions, your Smart Notebook “Trial” Period will eventually end, and you will be unable to use the software until you follow the instructions to sign up for the software.
