Remote training and learning have obtained their popularity for years - affordable and accessible anywhere. A growing number of educational opportunities have been created through online coding bootcamps, mock-up interviews (e.g. Software Engineer, Product Manager), and after-class small group lectures, which have changed many people's lives globally, especially during and post the pandemic era.
However, in order to for people to adapt to the new digital way of training or reach the same level of "in-person whiteboarding to explanation", it requires either expensive hardware that is restricted to a single location (e.g. classrooms) or not-yet-time-approved software-only solutions that may lack “in-person" interaction and can cause digital eye strain after intensive usage.
Boardit conducted a survey from hundreds of people in 2021, and around 67% of participants stated that, even with more new options today, they still prefer to use a whiteboard during a training session which is more affordable and simple, and it's a time-approved method.
Turn a cheap whiteboard into a remote smart tool with the Boardit web-based app and readily available hardware (webcams, projectors), and save the whiteboard content at any time which means no more rapid note-taking, taking pictures or needing to write down "do not erase".
It's intuitive and cost-effective.
How A Small Training Session Benefits From Boardit
A projector is needed to let Boardit bring remote participants' drawings to a physical whiteboard.
Not all remote participants have a projector? Boardit app enables those remote participants to join with a digital canvas and their drawings will be projected to the other's whiteboard so that all remote participants enjoy the "One-board" experience.
Step 1: Set up a projector in the room, and face it to the whiteboard. The projected area can be bigger than the board or cover a portion of the board.
Step 2: Face a webcam towards the whiteboard. To avoid the projector light glare on the board, it's better to place the webcam at a corner towards the board.
The following are common setups:
A projector is mounted to the ceiling in the meeting room, facing the whiteboard
A webcam connected to a computer is placed at a corner to avoid the projector light glare on the board.
A projector is placed on a table freely in the meeting room, facing the whiteboard
The built-in back camera of a computer is placed at a corner towards the whiteboard, to avoid the projector light glare on the board.
Step 3: Use the Boardit app to grab the written area, and the app will take care of the rest. This includes:
Projecting other participants' content to the whiteboard
Streaming the merged content to all participants
Saving a whiteboard snapshot at any time, and exporting all snapshots after the session
