SmartPen Loan Program

What is a Livescribe Smartpen?

A Smartpen is an assistive technology which captures everything you write, draw, speak or hear.  The Livescribe Smartpen is equipped with a camera, microphone and speakers, and as the note taker writes, the pen records audio and synchronizes the writing and sound.

How can it help me?

The Livescribe Smartpen takes the stress away of trying to write down everything during lecture. Use the Smartpen to write keywords and phrases, then you can go back and fill in your notes after class. This assistive technology can help you pay close attention to your instructor and worry less about taking perfect notes.

How can I get one?

Student eligibility to receive a Smartpen
