Low-Cost Multi-Touch Whiteboard


The interactive whiteboard is fast becoming part and parcel of the classroom. As usual the student who wants to learn and practice at home is at crossroads. He would like to practice what he/she sees at school but the high prices of an interactive whiteboard plus the software, are not student friendly!

We always insist that the lesson in a class is not enough. Some students need extra time in order to master the lesson. Besides, with the noise, interruptions etc. in a class, some students would like to revise the lesson in the quiet and peaceful settings of their own house.

Another important point is that the new format of the lesson is fast changing. The lesson is being done at home whilst the time in class could be devoted to personal questions and problems. Now if we wish to make this come true, one has to think of how to bring the interactive board to each student.

Today, proudly we are presenting a low-cost multi-touch Whiteboard. Besides the physical aspect of the challenge, we presenting the software too. Now in this regard it is very important to have open source software as these technological gadgets are changing practically every day. In a closed source software, one has to wait for the company (if they'll accept the challenge after all), to do the necessary changes. In the open source environment, one can change the program himself/herself. It is available for Windows, Macintosh and Linux OS.
