Request a SmartPen

Would you like to record a class and then replay the audio that applies by tapping on your notes?

If you are a Penn State Harrisburg student, the Learning Center has a number of SmartPens available for student loan. The SmartPens will be loaned on a first requested basis for each semester until our supply is exhausted.

Request the SmartPen by clicking on the request link and completing the form. You will need to provide your contact information, agree to follow the recording policy, and for each course you wish to record, you will need to provide the course code and section number, the schedule number, and the instructor’s name and email. Your request will be automatically emailed to each instructor. When the instructor informs the Learning Center that permission to record has been granted, you will receive an email from the Learning Center that the SmartPen is ready for you to pick up in SEC 201. Email with any questions.
