The interactive whiteboard uses touch detection for user input – e.g. scrolling, right mouse-click – in the same way normal PC input devices, such as a mouse or keyboard, detect input. A projector is used to display a computer's video output on the interactive whiteboard, which then acts as a large touch screen. The interactive whiteboard typically comes with four pens, which use digital ink and replace traditional whiteboard markers.

Tablet computers are used primarily as a platform for audio-visual media including books, periodicals, movies, music, games, apps and web content. A tablet's size and weight fall between those of contemporary smartphones and laptop computers. The tablet is controlled by a multi-touch display and has a virtual onscreen keyboard. The tablet accesses the internet through WiFi and can easily be connected to a TV using S-VGA or HDMI using corresponding adaptor.

Verizon has donating a number of Android tablets to NMU. The 20 Samsung Galaxy 2 tablets are available for departments and faculty to check out from the IDT office (LRC 112). The tablets are to be used for educational use, and documentation of the projects for which they are used is required as part of this program. Review these NMU Tablet Check-Out Guidelines for details.
