Real-time collaborative teaching platform Knowlounge gets major update

Real-time collaborative whiteboard and online learning platform Knowlounge has released a major update, giving more control to both teachers and students. In addition to this, the user interface has been given a general facelift, and improvements to breakout rooms means you can choose to stay part of the main conversation from your own board.

Collaborative real-time whiteboard Knowlounge has released a new and improved interface for its web and iOS versions, making online learning even easier.

The latest update lets teachers choose what type of class they would like to create, allowing more control over webcams. The three class modes are standard class (webcams and whiteboards), whiteboards with no webcams, and selected webcams only.

The new ‘selected webcams only’ mode lets teachers choose which webcams they want to share with the class, and can be used for classes with many students, or when multiple teachers are lecturing together. Knowlounge currently allows up to six webcams to be shared simultaneously, and supports up to 30 users in one class.

Webcam and audio controls for all users have also received a major overhaul. When entering a class, participants can now preselect whether they would like to use their webcam or microphone before joining a class. These settings give users better control over their privacy and can be changed at any time during a class.

Another major improvement is that students can stay connected to their teachers and classmates when moving to their own whiteboards. While switching boards previously meant losing webcam and audio from the main class, students now have the ability to choose whether they want to remain part of the class conversation, or separate into their own webcam and voice channel.

A revised user interface also makes managing users, navigating pages and creating quizzes easier than before. Klounge CEO, Taeho Lee, says the latest Knowlounge update will give teachers and students better control over their online learning environment.

“Since launching Knowlounge, we’ve continued to work on adding features and improving the experience for our users,” says Lee. “As part of this, we’ve been listening to feedback so we can create a platform that’s both useful and intuitive for teachers and students.”

Knowlounge is available in 30 language and can be accessed at knowlounges.com or downloaded from the App Store.
