What is an interactive whiteboard? 🤔

According to Wikipedia, an interactive whiteboard is an interactive screen connected to a computer or a projector which can be controlled using a pen, finger or another tool. A remote whiteboard would then be the same, but for remote work.

Why do you need a remote whiteboard?

If you have ever been a part of a brainstorming session, you know the importance of having a dedicated place to jot down all your thoughts and ideas. As is obvious, not every modern organization works in a co-located setting, wherein teams have access to all the facilities provided in an office environment - a whiteboard, dedicated brainstorming room, projector, speakers, mic and so on. With remote teams, it is difficult and rather impractical to build such a capital intensive work space at multiple locations. Apps such as RealtimeBoard serve the same purpose mimicking a real-life whiteboard and brainstorming session.

Features to look out for when choosing a remote whiteboard app:

  • Real Time screen sharing

  • Easy integration with third-party apps like Slack and Drive

  • Infinite space on the board
