According to Wikipedia, an interactive whiteboard is an interactive screen connected to a computer or a projector that can be controlled using a pen, finger or another tool. An online 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 workspace 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
An interactive online remote whiteboard can serve the demands of organizations across the globe that have adopted remote working as well as the increasing demands of people transitioning towards online education. Some, such as Deskle, are even tailored for your needs alone by making use of experiences from experts in various industries!
