Pairing a Marker

The new C Series Robot looks similar to the Gen2 Robot, but can do a whole lot more!
Which robot do you have? The article you see here applies only to the Swivl Gen2 Robot. Click here for the Swivl C Series Robot article.



Swivl comes with a single marker, however a second can be added to allow multiple audio inputs. When using two markers at once, the Swivl base will only follow the movement of the primary marker (the first one turned on), but pick up audio from both markers. This is a great option for co-teachers or for picking up audio from a teacher as well as a group of students.


To pair a second marker to the Swivl base, follow these instructions:

  • Turn off the first marker. The right LED on the Swivl base should be red.
  • On the marker, press the power and the checkmark buttons simultaneously until the LED light flashes red. Then release.
  • On the Swivl base, simultaneously press and release both buttons.The power LED light will begin to flash.
  • After a few seconds of flashing, LEDs on both base and Marker will turn green.
  • Pairing is complete.
