A smartpen is a device for note taking. The pen syncs your handwritten notes and recorded audio to help with note taking in your courses. In the device's notebook, you can click anywhere on your notes to replay the audio from that moment. Students who have received an accommodation from Accessibility Services for a smartpen, can loan one and receive training on how to utilize it from the Center for Educational and Assistive Technology. If you would like to loan a smartpen for the semester, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. SCSU provides access to Livescribe smartpens.
