Smart Kapp 84

Many Social Science Centre departmental classrooms have been equipped with the Smart Kapp 84 whiteboards (SSC 2322E, 3102, 3227, 3315, 4103, 4105, 4112, 4255, 4317, 4444, 4446, 5220, 5406, 5427, and 5428). These whiteboards do everything the regular whiteboards do, plus so much more!

Frequently Asked Questions:

What markers should be used on the SMART kapp boards?

Some markers were provided with the SMART kapp boards but you can use any dry erase markers. For best results, SMART recommends these third-party replacement markers:

  • BIC Magic Marker dry erase liquid markers, fine tip
  • EXPO low odor fine tip dry erase markers
  • Staples Remarx dry erase markers, bullet tip

Can the SMART kapp board be used like a regular whiteboard?

To use it as a normal whiteboard, simply unplug the AC power adapter and nothing will be captured. Remember to erase the board when you are finished.

Can different coloured markers be used on the SMART kapp board?

Yes, you can use multiple colours, however, the board will only save and share in black.
