Bridgit for iPad app
Leverage your investment in iPads by downloading the Bridgit for iPad app from the App Store. Students can use features like raising their hands virtually on their iPad during a lesson to make lessons more interactive. And the app supports iOS6.1.2 and first generation iPads on iOS5.1.1.
Improved video quality
View video streams from up to nine locations simultaneously. The video quality has been improved through a frame rate that is twice as fast and a pixel count that is 4 times greater than in the previous version of the software.
Easily control video and audio settings, resize video windows and select tiled or filmstrip layouts for viewing.
New support for server virtualization
The software is easy to install on a virtualized server running vSphere 4.1.
Students can connect remotely and participate with their classmates as if they were in the same room. They can work on the same file, share information and exchange ideas.
Use voice, video, instant messaging and digital annotations to share content and participate in whole-class or small-group instruction on a SMART Board interactive whiteboard or personal computers in real time.
With one click share your SMART Notebook™ software files and website content from your computer desktop or SMART Board interactive whiteboard so everyone can see.
Write, draw and interact with files to collaborate with students anywhere – remote students can draw on the SMART Board interactive whiteboard at the same time as a student in the room.
Use any microphone headset to hear classroom discussions and ask questions.
Use Web cam video streams to visually connect remote students with the rest of the class in a real-time video stream that appears in a pop-up box. The software supports video from up to nine locations simultaneously.
Students can use instant messaging to chat privately with each other or with groups of students who are connected to a SMART Board interactive whiteboard.
Remote students can let the teacher or other students know that they want to ask a question or make a comment without disrupting the flow of the lesson by clicking on the Raise Hand button.
All students, including those connecting remotely, can take turns controlling the session and sharing or creating content.
Share multiple displays
Use multiple SMART Board interactive whiteboards and displays throughout the classroom or school to support small-group learning. Remote students can connect to and interact with any of the displays.
Connect with students anywhere as long as they have an Internet connection. Students join the session by simply clicking on the link sent in an e-mail invitation – no software installation is required.
Multilayer password options and SSL encryption ensure students can collaborate in a safe environment. The software is also designed to work with firewalls.
Integration with Microsoft® Office Outlook® and Exchange
Schedule meetings by checking on the SMART Scheduler options, which automatically create a SMART Bridgit software session. Invitations sent to participants will include connection instructions and the start and end times of your meeting.
The full version of Bridgit software supports 13 languages and you can easily switch between them. The SMART Bridgit app for iPad currently supports English only.
Support for mixed OS environments
The full version of Bridgit software is compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems.
