Whiteboards are perfect for brainstorming, teaching, and team collaboration. Thus, they are ubiquitous in meeting rooms and classrooms and ideal for in-person meetings and classes. However, whiteboards are not as widely used in video meetings — and even when they are, the whiteboard is often difficult to see for remote participants and students.
The problem with using whiteboards in a video meeting or virtual classroom is that they are typically difficult to see by remotely located attendees. The whiteboards are often too far from the camera, off to one side, or blocked by people and furniture. This situation can be frustrating for remote attendees. Worse, it often leaves them out of the discussion. Their ability to follow along is reduced, and any input they might have offered is lost.
Given the multiple uses and applications of whiteboards- the predicaments that most face using them – perhaps due to limitations of space, innovation or solution – it is unfortunate that the benefits of the application have not been often fully realized.
So how can meeting hosts and teachers make whiteboards just as valuable for virtual meetings and classes?
As people return to the office and look forward to working together in person again, they have the benefit of a new perspective. Working remotely for a year or more has taught many of us the value of collaboration and the challenges of replicating that experience while working from home. In the field of education, teachers and students alike have similarly learned first-hand the limitations of remote learning.
And yet, both remote work and remote learning are likely to continue, perhaps indefinitely. Many companies and schools are therefore eager to ensure that remote workers and remote students feel engaged and involved in the collaboration and learning process, wherever they happen to be.
While there are a few solutions on the market addressing this need, the most effective solution can be one offered by Logitech that is known to understand diverse situations and develop a multitude of solutions.
The latest addition to their portfolio from the company is the incorporation of whiteboards in remote collaboration and learning architecture with artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities.
Logitech Scribe – as the solution with AI-powered whiteboard camera is called – therefore provides for enhanced tech experience to the users even as they enable them work and learn with ease.
It provides employees and educators with the ability to seamlessly integrate whiteboards — a key tool of collaboration and teaching – into video meetings and virtual classrooms.
That it comes with the added competence of AI capability, Logitech Scribe effortlessly shares whiteboards into video meetings and classes with outstanding clarity. It works beautifully with Microsoft Teams Rooms, Zoom Rooms, and other leading video conferencing services. Scribe makes it easy to incorporate your whiteboard into any virtual meeting or classroom.
