Smartpen Basics

What are Pencasts?
Pencasts are online interactive Flash videos of handwritten notes and audio captured by the smartpen. When you upload your recordings to your myLivescribe account, Livescribe automatically creates a PDF and a pencast from your content that you can then share with others.

Introduction to the Flip Video Camera

What is a Flip Video Camera?
FLIP cameras are small handheld video cameras that can record 60 minutes worth of video. They connect to your computer with a USB plug that “flips” out from the side of the camera. They are very easy to use and provide basic videotaping capabilities.

Something to think about:

Smartpen Legal issues

Legal considerations in NY - As long as one party to the conversation consents to being recorded it is legal. So obviously the party doing the recording can provide consent.

"Thirty-eight states and the District of Columbia permit individuals to record conversations to which they are a party without informing the other parties that they are doing so. These laws are referred to as “one-party consent” statutes, and as long as you are a party to the conversation, it is legal for you to record it." See Taping Legal issues
