The Importance of Interactive Whiteboards to Speechi
|A fundamental belief by Speechi has always been that eLearning and Distance learning will only become attractive to professors and teachers when the tools are simple enough to use, or better yet, involve tools they are already using. This is why Speechi is tightly integrated with PowerPoint, the world’s most widely used presentation program.|
A standard whiteboard is used even more by educators, which is why Speechi very early investigated the possibility of integrating the Speechi technology with a normal whiteboard.
The eBeam interactive technology, developed by Luidia, Inc., became the clear choice for Speechi to integrate with. eBeam’s technology has important advantages over other competitors because of its mobility, small size, simplicity and high reliability.
While all drawings and annotations from an interactive whiteboard can be saved and later printed or reviewed via the Internet, the critical missing piece with standard interactive whiteboards is capturing the voice of the teacher, professor, lecturer or presenter. With our Speechi technology and eBeam Interactive Technology, not only can voice and all annotations be captured, but everything is also synchronized with PowerPoint slides and other applications, and later converted into Flash for uploading to a Web server – for anyone, anywhere in the world to view!
Interactive Whiteboards are good for teaching…
|Capture an entire lecture, meeting or presentation, including sound and all annotations. Create a Flash file that everyone can have access to for later review, even those that did not attend|
- Import existing documents into Scrapbook for editing, brainstorming and sharing. Replay annotations stroke by stroke at any time
- Share your presentations with off-site peers or customers with eBeam’s included Internet collaboration features. Saves time and money since everyone can work from their own office or home
- Increased collaboration among students and the teacher
