ActivBoard and ActivDrivers

The ActivBoard


The ActivBoard is connected through a USB to any computer.  By projecting the computer's image onto the ActivBoard, the surface becomes interactive allowing the teacher and student to manipulate any application using the ActivPen.

The ActivDriver

The ActivDriver is required for the computer to communicate with the ActivBoard.  If you do not have the correct driver installed, the ActivPen will not work on the ActivBoard.


Where can I find the ActivDriver?


The ActivDriver file is located in the .dmg (Mac) and .exe (PC) files for both ActivStudio and ActivInspire applications.
