Full featured whiteboard

I have been using manu other whiteboards, usually shipping with interactive whiteboards, and this one really suits my needs.

Pros

You can write on a standard whiteboard or scribble on top of your desktop, to overlay on your documents and software. This is really nice to setup with a tablet or interactive whiteboard. Unobstrusive icons let you switch from normal use to overlay scribbling.

Cons

Ideal for videoconferences to whether explain something on a board or to add to a document that you are sharing on your screen.

Reasons for Switching to OpenBoard

eBeam is nice but works only with their hardware. Jamboard, Miro and the like don't do overaly on your desktop, they just allow you to write on a whiteboard. OpenBoard allows to write on top of your desktop and this is really an interesting feature.

I have been using this application for teaching during these corona days and it is an effective teaching materials. I love this application.

Pros

Best way to teach the student. It is similar to the conventional blackboard which is much more better possibilities for teaching. It has different colours of pen and contains facilities to include slides and figures and also can be recorded.

Cons

It doesn't contain figures like circles and triangle. It would be better if audio facility is incorporated.
