How to collaborate with a SMART Board

Collaboration can be as simple as exchanging emails or phone calls to discuss a topic, or sending a document back and forth with each party making changes. However, collaborating in those ways can be painfully slow, with projects taking months to get off the ground. A better alternative is to use SMART Boards, as collaboration is instant and interactive, even when your team is scattered across the globe.

People have always collaborated – it’s a natural human instinct to want to get involved. However, many of the old ways of collaboration are now impractical and outdated. Gone are the days when we were happy to wait three days for documents to arrive in the post, only for us to amend them and post them back, delaying projects even further. Now we demand instant communication, but without the relevant tools, real time collaboration can be difficult, especially if you are working with people in another part of the world. Services like Google Docs let us share and work on projects collaboratively, but it still involves sending documents backwards and forwards and working on them independently.

SMART Boards provide the answer to real time collaboration. Using a SMART board you enable true two way communication. Everything written or displayed on a SMART Board is immediately visible to every connected device, meaning everyone is kept in the loop. You can open documents, annotate them and highlight text and the changes are seen as they happen – no need to press a button to send the changes out. And using the new 800 series SMART Boards, two people can use the board independently and simultaneously, resulting in even more interactive collaboration.

The beauty of SMART Boards is that you are not restricted to collaboration in one room. You could install SMART Boards in all your offices across the world, or use smaller, portable Podium devices to enable collaboration on the move. There’s also Bridgit software that gives access to SMART collaboration sessions via laptop, tablet or smartphone. Collaborating with a SMART Board is a fun, flexible, highly interactive experience that happens instantly no matter where the participants are located.
