Each year, eSchool Media receives nominations for education hardware, software, websites, and services from nearly 1,300 readers and visitors to their websites. eSchool Media then selects the 50 best responses and groups them into K-12 and higher education categories. This year, the WorldWideWhiteboard was selected as one of 10 higher education category winners.
“We use this product for our online Writing Center,” said Leah Rogin-Roper, English professor and Writing Center coordinator for Arapahoe Community College in Colorado. “It allows students to work in real-time interactive sessions with tutors. The features of WorldWideWhiteboard are intuitive and easy for students to use, but allow multiple levels of interaction. Tutors can chat with students, have video or audio sessions, and mark up their essays with suggestions, highlighting, underlining, typed conversations, and more. This product is particularly helpful for students taking online courses or studying at our satellite campuses, to allow them access to the same great, professional tutors who work on campus, from the convenience of the student’s own home.”
Along with the WorldWideWhiteboard, other winners in the higher education category are Apilia (Cengage), Canvas (Instructure)
