Live from NECC: Mac Interactive Whiteboard

News from the National Educational Computing Conference:

In an effort that addresses the needs of Mac users in the educational community, Hitachi Software has released StarBoard Software 9.0.

A new live desktop mode allows users to ink on YouTube™ videos or any animation without having to take screen shots or freeze frames. Additionally, a user can drag tools from the toolbar and drop them onto a page offering a more customizable interface. This feature allows a math teacher to place a protractor tool directly on a page so a student has the ability to activate it easily, as opposed to navigating through the menus.
