WorldWideWhiteboard Wins Readers’ Choice Award

The WorldWideWhiteboard was selected as an eSchool Media Readers’ Choice Award winner for 2012-2013.

Sept. 12, 2012 - PRLog -- Tampa, Florida – Link-Systems International’s (LSI) academic online collaboration platform, the WorldWideWhiteboard, has been officially recognized by readers and visitors of eSchool News, eCampus News, and eClassroom News as one of the year’s best educational technology products.

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), LearnSmart (McGraw-Hill), LiveText, Mediasite (Sonic Foundry), Remote Proctor Now (Software Secure), Salesforce, SoftChalk, and Tegrity Campus (McGraw-Hill).  These products and services have been recognized as the top educational technology products and services that have proven to be effective, as noted by colleges nationwide.

Market-leading mobile device support is the defining characteristic of the WorldWideWhiteboard. A full architectural rewrite in HTML 5.0 allows for support of major mobile devices—including iPad, iPhone, and Android— and provides the flexibility necessary to more quickly support new versions or new devices.

Ease of use and an expanded toolset ensures that participants remain engaged while using the technology. Whether instructors utilize the drag-and-drop-website-to-whiteboard functionality to pull images onto the workspace and use them as the background for a lecture or they engage students with pertinent YouTube or other video content, the WorldWideWhiteboard facilitates and retains interaction better than ever before.

Any student or faculty member with Internet connectivity can collaborate online with the WorldWideWhiteboard.  There are no custom installations or third-party downloads required, and it supports all HTML compliant browsers and mobile devices. Integration is made easy with a proven SSO architecture for learning management systems and flexible Basic LTI support for custom platforms along with stabile, scalable ASP hosting.
