LiberCloud, the content management and collaboration platform for educators and learners, announces a new Virtual Whiteboard capability that takes collaboration to a new level by supporting multiple workgroups to collaborate in real-time.
SAN JOSE, CA, June 03, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ — LiberCloud is a cloud-based platform that gives instructors, trainers and educators more control and flexibility by providing a cohesive and simplified experience between instructors and learners.
Blended learning has become the new trend in education for a reason. It works. It works in classrooms, in colleges, and within the corporate walls because it gives students more opportunities to learn better and it gives educators more flexibility to use the media and delivery methods that best suit their classroom or topic.
LiberCloud has been at the leading edge of this trend and today we’re announcing a new capability that further extends our leadership in providing novel and practical solutions to educators embracing blended learning methods.
While LiberCloud already supports tiered real-time co-authoring capabilities, it now adds the Virtual Whiteboard to the collaboration platform. We completed beta testing and the new feature is now available to all customers as an add-on feature.
“This is another step to ultimately achieve our mission of making teachers and instructors more effective and helping students learn better“, said Felice Curcelli, CEO and Co-founder of LiberCloud. “Students will love the new capability as it allows every student to participate in the learning process more actively, and docents will love it too because makes it so much easier to coordinate multiple workgroups in the organized chaos of the modern classroom.”
The Virtual Whiteboard concept is per se not new; what’s new is LiberCloud’s implementation with two fundamental differentiating benefits.
As a teacher or instructor coaching and leading a classroom in learning new topics you separate the class into workgroups to create a more conducive collaborative environment that better suits the mix of students you have in the classrooms. With leaders and followers, vocal students and more timid ones, small workgroups just work better. LiberCloud’s new Virtual Whiteboard implementation suits this particular scenario very well, where you as an educator can go behind the scene and watch the multiple workgroups collaborate on how they expand a creative idea or solve a problem together using the natural environment of LiberCloud Canvas. You can even intervene if you feel like a workgroup is going down the wrong path or make a suggestion on how to get a workgroup unstuck. This is not only a great-time saver but makes you more effective.
The second benefit derived from LiberCloud’s approach is that workgroup brainstorming sessions can be recorded and saved. Thus they can then be used as content for subsequent workgroup sessions or for other related learning content.
LiberCloud helps learning organizations break free from the constraints of traditional training technology, with a platform that provides a powerful way for training authors and instructors to collaboratively create and deliver engaging blended learning content.
