Printable Step by Step Audio Guide - Print just the page you need! Teachers like to print out 1 page to keep next to their Swivl for the first few times they do setup. Our setup guide features Android and iOS mobile devices.
Training Slide Deck - This will go over basic robot setup and live stream. Included is Zoom, Google Meet, and MS Teams for your live stream options here. 
Swivl Training Webinar Registration- Webinars are offered 4/x day on Tuesdays and Thursdays (Bring your questions and learn more about Swivl.)
Directions for Repairing the Swivl base with a new Primary Marker-- Occasionally, you may need to switch your Markers from one Swivl base to another. This might happen if a teacher accidentally misplaces the Primary Marker. You can use any secondary marker as the new Primary. Tip - Remove the colored sticker so you keep track of markers within the Swivl app settings. The Primary Marker should always remain black (without a sticker).

Prolonging Battery Life

Charging (You should plan on 6 hours to charge the Swivl robot base from fully dead to fully charged).
