Fed up with your flipchart or whiteboard? Want a more dynamic presentation? Keen to include live computer presentations into your sessions?
You can do all this - and a whole lot more - using SMARTboards currently being shown at the Training Solutions Show. A projector linked to your computer displays the computer screen onto an electronic whiteboard in brilliant colour. Use your finger on the screen as a 'mouse' to move objects about, write text, open and close menus. Point to objects on the screen and link them together. Hook up to the Internet and display the browser page on the whiteboard!
When you've finished, you can print the page off, save it, and link it to other pages. Several SmartBoards can be linked together in different venues and what displays or changes on one is copied to all the others simultaneously - great for distance learning.
This is a great product - at a remarkable price: From £900 to £2,500 to include projector, screen and software.
For a backlit screen, there are options up to £12,000
