Interactive Whiteboard Software

Powering our line of interactive whiteboards, award-winning WorkSpace software allows presenters to create, assemble and present content for engaging environments that enrich learning and collaboration. Its unique, interactive tools allow learners and presenters to write, diagram, manipulate and annotate on boards with ease. An open design allows for instructional material in multiple formats from many sources, including web resources and publisher content, eliminating importing or compatibility issues. Multi-user mode, advanced recognition features and a library of available content make WorkSpace the ideal platform to compel cooperation and connection.

Features

Interactive Toolbox

Over 62 interactive tools are available for instructors to facilitate material, access content and ultimately drive group work. One touch can access pen, highlighter, text, shapes and more. Create richer sessions with unlimited activity options. Common tools include:

  • Freehand Text: Convert handwritten text into typed text and insert the typed text into a blank page or an active application, such as Excel, PowerPoint or Word.
  • Freehand Shape: Convert an object drawn freehand, such as a rectangle, into a true rectangle with 90 degree corners and straight perimeter lines.
  • Freehand Equation Pen: Convert any written numeric characters into typed text.
  • Capture: Capture a snapshot of the full screen, a selected window or a selected portion of the screen.
  • Record and Playback: Record and play back events, with sound, as they occur. Events are stored in an AVI file for playback to engage remote or homebound participants. Post online for a greater reach.
  • Response System: Click the Start SRS icon to display the polling question menu if using a response system for interactive polling.
  • ExamView: Click the ExamView icon to open ExamView for additional content and assessment options.

Resources on Reserve

Create your own content or access a complete library of images, animations and subject-specific material. The Gallery offers more than 4,000 resources to jumpstart your presentations. Search and explore readily available content within WorkSpace, eliminating the need to consult other material. Even build a database and add favorites to customize the gallery for your desired content. Import pre-existing content with common file format support, also allowing for the export to other, third-party applications.

Multiple Users Amp Up Collaboration

Multi-User Mode allows up to nine participants to interact using shared or defined (one person per defined area) space. Keep participants engaged and collaborating with Mobi tablet devices that function as mobile interactive whiteboards for each participant. Display all work to spark discussions and build knowledge gains with each activity. Add, remove and move Mobi tablets to different areas with the ability to edit.

Make It and Take It Mobile

The WorkSpace Connect app turns an iPad® or Android™ tablet into a mobile, interactive whiteboard for presenters to manage lessons from anywhere in the room. Operate the desktop computer, facilitate presentations and annotate over content using the app. Combine with a projector and instructors can project material onto any surface while remaining mobile.
