    SmartBoard SW - student laptops...?

    Does anyone know wether the school would be breaking any software licensing rule by installing the SmartBoard software onto a students laptop?
    Currently it is installed on the machines connected to the boards and the teachers laptops only.

    Cheers.

    it should stay connected to the boards and teachers laptops. If the children want it, you would need to make them a member of staff (according to there own T's&C's)

    Which version,

    I was always under the impression that Smartboard Software (pre version 10) could be used on any computer as long as it wasn't attached to a competitor's whiteboard. It's freely available from their web site.

    they changed the Ts & Cs on versions 8 and upwards to be the same as version 10. Whilst it is freely available (up to 10), you MUST be a registered member of the staff in a school, with a valid staff email address.
