Teachers can interact with students at their desks or from all four corners of the classroom.
Splashtop Whiteboard is built on top of Splashtop Remote Desktop, the company’s åaward-winning and long-running #1 paid iPad app in the Apple App Store.
What education professionals are saying about Splashtop Whiteboard:
“I really like Splashtop Whiteboard. The remote desktop access is very functional and allows me to just carry my iPad as opposed to carrying my clunky laptop. That alone made it worth it… the whiteboard capability and the ability to annotate documents and drawings make this an invaluable tool that I will recommend to others” – Jim Russell, Assistant Director of Business Technology Services, Pinellas County Government.
“The Essa Academy in the UK are known for innovation and technology. Splashtop has helped us redesign our 20 million pound building – redefining how learning happens at the academy. Using Splashtop Whiteboard, teachers are now free to wander around the class to help students but still have full control of the front of the room as well as annotate lesson content through their iPads” - Abdul Chohan, Director, Educational Innovations.
Using Splashtop Whiteboard, teachers can:
Be in Control – Have complete control over Mac or PC applications, such as Apple Keynote® or Microsoft PowerPoint®, all from an iPad. No need to be tied to the front of the class. Be free to roam around. Hand the iPad to a student and let their imagination do the rest!
Annotate Anything – Use gestures to draw and highlight using different colored and sized pens, highlighter, shapes and text tools over existing content or blank, ruled or graphed backgrounds. Take snapshots of the screen and save them to the gallery for later use or email them to students, parents or colleagues.
Experience Lifelike Playback – All video and audio are played in high definition on your iPad. Play Adobe Flash content, iTunes music, DVDs, CDs, etc. as they were meant to be enjoyed and avoid the hassles of syncing.
