Interactive WhiteBoard (IWB) as Collaboration Tools

IWBs or "a smartboard" (SmartBoard™ is actually just a trademarked brand name of IWBs, there are many manufacturers such as 3M, DYMO (Mimio), Hitachi, HP, Lenovo, Panasonic, eInstruction, and more) is a white or marker board that has been designed and manufactured to be projected on by a projector and used as an input device. IWBs typically build in one or more of the following technologies:

  • Resitive touch
  • Infrared (IR) touch (also called IR scan)
  • Electomaganetic pens
  • Touch-free camera-based

IWBs, when used with a projector and computer, allow users to interact with a presentation right on the whiteboard as well as control their computer from the whiteboard (which is typically mounted on the wall or on a rolling floor stand). IWBs are sort of like a giant graphics tablet. IWBs are great for teaching and collaboration as they allow instructors to annotate and capture notes during a presentation or even videoconferencing. If used with an audience response system (also known as "clicker") presenters can directly get feedback by polling their audience or giving quizzes during their presentation.

Alternatives to IWBs:

1) Interactive Projection

There are some projectors with built-in Interactive whiteboard technology, which turns the projector screen surface or wall (whatever they are projecting on) into an interactive surface. Both Epson and InFocus were the first to bring this technology to market (InFocus was this first to bring it to market in late 2009 but Epson was not far behind with their solution in spring 2010) but now there are units from Optoma, ViewSonic, Hitachi, BenQ, Dell, and, Luidia, Boxlight as well. Some of the solutions, like Epson’s, are pen-based which means you need to be at the board or screen, while others are wand-based, which means you can interact from almost anywhere in the room within 30 to 40 feet. Like interactive whiteboards, these solutions work similarly to graphics tablets or optical mice in that they work off a digital grid. Once the projector and pen or wand are calibrated, the user can interact with, annotate, create, and more with the presentation content.

2) Touch displays

Touch capable LCD or plasmas are offered by most of the display manufacturers like Samsung, NEC, Sony, HP, Planar, ViewSonic and ELO. This displays work like any other large format display (30" or larger) but they have the added feature of touch screen just like an iPhone or Droid. The largest single display is 82" offered by Samsung but users can also utilize multiple smaller screens to make an interactive video wall. For instance four 55-inch touch screens in a 2 high x 2 wide tile would yield a 110-inch diagonal touch screen. The combinations are endless.

Some of the manufacturers, like Samsung and Infocus, even offer units specifically for education as alternatives to IWBs, but in theory any touch monitor can give you the same capabilities as a traditional IWB.

Collaborative devices/solutions for IWBs

There are numerous add-on collaborative products that are both pen-based and tablet-based that can be used with existing projectors to allow you to interact with your presentations. Some of these require you to be at the whiteboard and some work from anywhere. Ebeam from Luidia has a device you mount to a traditional whiteboard and using a Ebeam pen interactive on the whiteboard. The Q300 Mirrorboard is a 10-inch wireless screen or slate that allows users to see what is being projected on a large format display and interact with it from up to 30-feet away from the receiver (which is hooked to the computer). This allows teachers to walk around the room and not even have to face the board to see what they are doing. There are many different types of interactive whiteboard devices available from manufacturers like Avermedia, Luida, Optoma, Hitachi, eInstruction and more.

The database presented here offers products that GovConnection sells specifically for the education market.

ViewSonic Ebeam Edge eBeam Edge Interactive Projector/Whiteboard Solution by Luidia

ViewSonic Ebeam Edge eBeam Edge Interactive Projector/Whiteboard Solution by Luidia

If you walked into a classroom where ViewSonic's PJ-PEN-002 eBeam Edge For Education was being used you're realize almost instantly what was going on. What you might not realize is how it was going on.

You know what a whiteboard is. There must be one in just about every classroom in America. Although they're far less common than ordinary whiteboards, you might know what an interactive whiteboard is too.

With an interactive whiteboard, a computer and a projector you can display PowerPoint slide shows, computer-based lessons and other programs on the board and navigate through them, manipulate them and annotate them. With many you can save your work along with your notes in a variety of file formats.

eBeam for Education turns any ordinary whiteboard into an interactive whiteboard. Here's how it works:

After you've installed the software into your Mac or PC you connect your computer to your USB-equipped projector. (Cable available separately) Then you place the eBeam receiver on the edge of your whiteboard. It's less than eight inches long (200 mm) 1.6 inches (41 mm) wide and less than a half inch thick (10.5 mm). If you have a metal-edged board you can attach it magnetically. Otherwise you can use the included mounting brackets. Run the included 16 foot (4.87 meters) long USB cable from the receiver to your computer and you're ready to go.

Once you're set up you can project PowerPoint and Keynote slideshows, lesson plans, and other computer-based learning materials. Pick up the stylus and navigate, annotate and manipulate what's on the board just as you would with an actual interactive whiteboard.

The eBeam system includes a complete package of software that makes your eBeam even more valuable. Included in the software is eBeam Scrapbook, a multi-media organizer for gathering, preparing, presenting, and sharing your content.

Mitsubishi Bundle XD250U-ST Portable DLP Projector with Ebeam Edge

Mitsubishi Bundle XD250U-ST Portable DLP Projector with Ebeam Edge

  • 2700 ANSI lumens / 2000:1 Contrast Ratio / 1024 x 768 Max Resolution
  • 4:3, 16:9 Image Aspect Ratio / Digital Light Processing (DLP) Display
  • Remote control, Single speaker, Speaker Included, Blackboard mode, Whiteboard mode / 3 Years Warranty

This bundle includes (1) XD250U-ST DLP projector and (1) eBeam Edge.

In the past, attempting to show large projected presentations in small rooms could prove quite difficult, as a projector would need to take up a lot of desk space in order to show a sufficiently large image. Thanks to the short throw projector from Mitsubishi Electric however, this problem is a thing of the past. Requiring only an 83cm distance to deliver a 1.5m projection image, the XD250U-ST can be placed right at the edge of a table top, eliminating the loss of workspace commonly associated with conventional projectors. The XD250U-ST's lightweight and compact design also makes it ideal for sales presentations on the move or easy transfer between classrooms.

Great images in limited area aren't the only thing going for the XD250U-ST, as it also features an outstanding range of value-added functions. The built-in 10W speaker effectively eliminates the need for an external audio system in small rooms, while the "Audio Mix" feature allows the user to connect two audio inputs to the projector (e.g. a microphone and DVD player) and control each of the input volumes separately. The projector can be connected to a local area network for remote monitoring and control, and the visual PA feature allows messages to be simultaneously broadcast to multiple Mitsubishi projectors on the network. Low operating costs are also a standout feature of the XD250U-ST, with a staggering lamp life of up to 6000 hours ensuring far fewer lamp changes, and a filter free design meaning less downtime for maintenance.

Near-silent 26 decibel operation in low mode ensures that the XD221 doesn't compete with the presenter. A high-volume, 10 watt built-in speaker eliminates the need for an external speaker.
