Using the software provided on the classroom computers (Smartboard Tools), you can annotate your Powerpoint or web-based content and then save those annotated images/slides to distribute to your students after the class.

Additionally, using a SMART-developed Powerpoint replacement called SMART Notebook, you can produced interactive slide packages that allow yourself or your students to interact with the display on the Smartboard to work through lesson modules and receive active feedback.
