Brea, CA (Feb. 22, 2021) – ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solutions, introduces new classroom collaboration tools, including myViewBoard™ Manager, myViewBoard Clips Hybrid Package, myViewBoard Box and a line of Pen Displays for remote- and hybrid-based learning environments at IDEAcon, presented by the Illionois Digital Educators Alliance, Feb. 22-24, 2021.
A part of the ViewSonic® myViewBoard™ education ecosystem, myViewBoard Clips and Pen Displays offer interactive and portable solutions in the classroom or at home for digitized learning. The ViewSonic myViewBoard software is a powerful tool that empowers teachers to build lesson plans, create engaging content and share lessons with students. It works with Windows-, Android- and cloud-based environments, and can work with existing technology for seamless integration.
"ViewSonic is excited to introduce these solutions as part of the myViewBoard ecosystem that can help teachers and students share and collaborate, even at a distance," said Sean Liu, business line manager, software at ViewSonic America. "As schools continue to develop new and creative learning environments to match the needs of remote- and hybrid-learning environments, teachers and students face challenges that require resources from hardware to software. These solutions were developed to provide supplementary tools for digitalized learning in this new hybrid learning environment."
With the myViewBoard Clips hybrid package, educators can access more than two million licensed educational videos and share with students learning at home. The content is educationally curated, fit for common core standards, and can be sorted based on age level and subject matter. Each video is selected from a library of more than 150 media partners, including: TED, PBS NewsHour and Bloomberg Media, as well as teachers' favorites such as Crash Course, Minute Earth and LearnZillion.
The myViewBoard Manager allows IT administrators to control and monitor devices, as well as broadcast messages to any display panel from anywhere, and is available to myViewBoard entity users. myViewBoard Manager Advanced is a premium version which features management for up to 100 administrators, additional cloud storage, broadcast of multimedia messages, as well as a report of device usage. The broadcasting function allows users to disseminate messages, videos and information to all devices from one location. The larger cloud storage ensures space availability for different media content, while the reporting feature shows analytics based on usage and devices, among others.
The new Pen Display devices include two models: the ID1330 and the ID0730. The ID1330 ViewBoard® Pen Display is an ultra-thin 13.3-inch pen display that features a battery-free pen to create, manage and share digital content. With this pen display, instructors in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics can enjoy better control and greater precision as they draw diagrams, equations and sketches. Teachers can use the ID1330 as a convenient second screen during online lessons or to create annotations during in-class presentations. The ID0730 ViewBoard Notepad is a user-friendly device that allows users to take digitalized notes in real-time. Both the ViewBoard Pen Display and ViewBoard Notepad work seamlessly with ViewSonic myViewBoard™ software and are compatible with Windows, Mac and Chrome OS.
The myViewBoard Box VBS100-A is a companion device for the myViewBoard ecosystem. It instantly transforms any touch display into a digital whiteboard. Any interactive projector, flat panel or touch monitor can be used as a hub to share content. By just connecting the myViewBoard Box directly to any display, via USB-C or HDMI and USB-A connector, it can mirror any myViewBoard canvas to share content from anywhere (through the built-in myViewBoard Display app).
myViewBoard Manager is available now and is complimentary for those who enroll in the myViewBoard ecosystem. myViewBoard Manager Advanced will be available in April 2021.
