Note taking may seem like a simple task, but it requires attention and active listening. The mechanical aspects of note taking are often dependent on a student’s motor abilities, including the ability to write quickly and legibly. Professors speak at about 120 wpm while students write 25 wpm. Hence, it is quite likely that students take incomplete or incorrect notes.

Studies have shown that note taking during lectures reduces learning because it results in split attention. In fact, in many cases, note taking can become a distraction – reducing the mental ability to process the content they are hearing and making it difficult for the student write complete and informative notes.

Use the Kaptivo whiteboard camera to improve remote collaboration and streamline whiteboard image capture without changing the way you work.

Kaptivo, which attaches to the top of any whiteboard, automatically saves images and shares content in real time via livestream or video conference integration. The images are instantly enhanced to remove any reflections, glare, and people blocking the board.

Kaptivo transforms the economical whiteboard, found in nearly every office and boardroom, into a powerful collaboration tool.

Interactive Whiteboard Decline Leads to New Technology Options

A recent article in THE Journal reported that global sales of interactive whiteboards are facing a steep decline in the next decade. To date, the education market remains the largest segment of end-users, “driven by low prices of interactive whiteboards and their benefits to students in teaching applications.” However, the availability of advanced new technologies – such as portable projectors, interactive flat panel displays and other interactive screens – with more features and little maintenance costs have led to declining whiteboard sales. Is it possible to find portable smart board capabilities that enable interactivity and collaboration on any surface at an affordable price?
