Livescribe Smartpens

Livescribe Smartpens, about the size of a larger pen, remember and link everything you hear to everything you write. Later, simply tap on your notes to replay the recording. Now you can find and get what you need, instantly, with a single tap.

Smartpens are accompanied with specially designed dot paper exclusively used with the Smartpen, earbud headphones and several charging options (e.g. USB).

Smartpen Loan Program

In 2011, Disability Services began offering loaner Livescribe Smartpens to registered students. Students are granted, and can keep, a Smartpen while they are registered for courses at OSU. Smartpens are loaned out as they become available.

How to Obtain a Smartpen:

If you would like a demonstration of a smartpen, or would like to borrow one, please contact Student Life Disability Services at or 614-292-3307.
