I said that I’d try and create one and here it is! A monster! A comparison chart of the basic features provided by Smart Notebook 10.7, Promethean Activ Inspire 1.5 and Easiteach Next Generation 1.2. After the chart fell onto it’s third page I thought I’d better stop but there are a lot more features that I could compare. Apologies if you feel something important has been missed. Please feel free to comment at the bottom and I’ll add it.
Please note, this is by no means the best way to decided what to buy. As I said in my previous posts how the software handles each feature and how easy they are to use should be the key thing you want to find out….. You’ll see there are not so many difference between them when you look at this chart. However, having been a seasoned user of all three I can tell you there are differences between the software that you will only find out about through playing with it!
Enjoy, this easy glance table and use it as a starting point if you wish!
I’ve already had one request via twitter to add the video file format compatibility to this table.. A big thank you to @Grumpydev for his help with the Easiteach list and to Maria at Electroboard for adding to the Notebook one! She also sent me this handy link for “Installing Third-Party Encoders and Importing Video Files into SMART Notebook Software” that I thought I’d share. I’m really happy for all the resellers to check and get involved with the chart as we speak RM are doing the same thing with their information. Hopefully, that should go some way to verifying the information I’ve presented.
