It is big and it is red. Imposing. And destiny has it that it will become the next big wave in education and workplace collaboration.
It is nowhere in the country, a direct rival to Microsoft’s Surface Hub. Google’s digital whiteboard offering is bound to take not just the education sessions to the next level but is also revolutionizing the way we conduct corporate meetings and presentations. This collaborative digital whiteboard allows for multiple users to hop in on an active session and thus work on projects right within its wide creative space. Google fondly calls this a “Jam” session.
Every good thing that you love about Google Ecosystem in terms of features and benefits can be found also in this digital whiteboard offering. It represents Google’s visual face. It supports all Sheets, Docs, Slides, and images, even GIFs from a cloud account (Google Drive). This makes everything easily editable, accessible, and shareable over this platform for everyone concerned.
The functionality and usability of Google search, as well as its powerful online browsing capabilities, is further enhancing the parallel research and creativity needed in the workspace. With the help of its wide-angle, built-in 1080p camera, together with its microphone and speakers, it can support Google Hangouts calls and videos and hold at least 50 participants at a time. We can attribute this power to its 4K display monitor, which helps users have a clear vision of everything.
The indispensability of Jamboard lies in the fact that it helps teams do what they need and love doing, and that is creating new and fresh ideas. Jamboard will raise the bar when it comes to empowering collaborative creativity and smart learning. The number of people that can hop in an ongoing “jam” is virtually unlimited.
If you are a certified G Suite registered user, you can take advantage of this digital whiteboards companion app, Jamboard online app. It is available for both iOS and Android users.
Jamboard users can sketch out their bright ideas, or put some digital sticky notes to remind them of something important. In addition, they can also take in Web content into an incessantly updating workspace.
Being able to see your colleague or a teammate writing something salient on the board even though he is not in the same room you are in is more going to make the whole whiteboard experience more collaborative and personal.
Smart Whiteboard Features
The fundamental usability and functionality features of a Jamboard app are comparable to the traditional whiteboard. You pace yourself towards it, grab your pen, and jot down anything on it. Whatever you write on one Jamboard, it will be mirrored in real-time across many other Jamboards, even tablet screens and computer systems, provided that they are participating devices in a “Jam” session.
The people who are behind those devices can decide to work also on the same displayed content. The Jamboard is a collaborative whiteboard that takes pride in its non-chargeable stylus. This is one of its major edges over competing brands, and as opposed to the knick-knacks of Microsoft Surface.
Ease of Distance Learning
The working idea and key selling point of Jamboard home products are better collaboration experience and enhanced conduct of meetings/presentations even if participants are from remote or different locations, at the same time.
We are not making a grand scale assumption in saying that smart whiteboards, like this product offering from Google, render distance as a mute concept with their use.
In a nutshell, Jamboard home is taking your traditional chalkboard or whiteboard from your conference room and puts them right into your mobile device with the utmost ease.
With G Suite offering needed side support here, Google Jamboard can support working together in groups remotely. Besides, it is also instrumental in making online or distance learning much more engaging.
With all these things we mentioned here, there is no way to deny that it is presenting us with a seamless, exciting, and quirky way to conceive and carry out projects inside a team collaboration environment.
