OpenBoard is a cross-platform (Linux / Windows / macOS) interactive whiteboard application. It is currently maintained by the Education Department (DIP) of the Canton of Geneva, in Switzerland.
OpenBoard is intended for use primarily in schools, and can be used both with interactive whiteboards or in a dual-screen setup with a touchscreen and secondary display.
Information about the latest release can be found on the Downloads page.
Main features include:
- Drawing tools (pen, highlighter)
- Easy management of all these elements through a built-in "library" pane
- Search tools to retrieve pictures from abulEdu.org and Pixabay.com
- Screencast function
- Desktop mode, to easily annotate anything outside of OpenBoard
- Integrated web browser
OpenBoard is a fork of Open-Sankoré v2.0. The main differences are that OpenBoard is simpler, having removed some of Open-Sankoré's more complicated features in favour of ease of use, and it is now based on modern libraries (Qt 5.5 on all platforms; Cocoa and AV Foundation for OS X-specific code).
