Webex and JIBB take hybrid learning to the next level
Happy Teacher Appreciation Week from the Webex family! The technical innovations that came from remote learning have caused a foundational shift in how schools approach a return to in-person education. Whether you’re teaching fully remote, in-person, or anywhere in between, hybrid learning techniques can be used as a tool to drive inclusivity and engagement.
A critical aspect of the live classroom that can be carried over into the virtual classroom is the ease of communicating readable, valuable hand-written information on the whiteboard. Webex has joined forces with JIBB, an AI-based virtual whiteboard company, to help educators extend their traditional whiteboard use to their virtual classrooms. Using the tools that they already have, JIBB for Webex makes hybrid learning more accessible, flexible, and inclusive.
Feature-rich integration takes live whiteboards virtual
With JIBB’s easy-to-use app right inside your Webex meeting, any writing surface can become your classroom’s virtual whiteboard with seamless sharing abilities. The JIBB embedded app is easy to use and anyone with an internet-connected device, webcam, and writing surface can take advantage of the benefits.
JIBB’s innovative virtual whiteboard technology uses AI to:
- Make hand-written content clearly visible in your Webex meetings.
- Maintain a clear view of what has been written on the whiteboard – even if someone walks in front of the board or it becomes otherwise obstructed.
- Automatically detect and orient the virtual whiteboard and adjust for skewing so the image is represented accurately.
- Draw, write, erase, and harness the simple effectiveness of real whiteboarding with a virtual audience.
- Use a familiar writing surface such as a whiteboard, a lapboard, or a paper and turn it into a digital canvas in real-time.
The power of this integration extends beyond a strictly virtual classroom. With meeting recording capabilities, your Webex meetings with JIBB can become a record of what has been covered in each lesson. These visuals will help students who have to miss class, need extra time, or simply need review while completing assignments at home. From kindergarteners to collegiates and beyond, students can continue their learning anytime, anywhere.
At Webex, we pride ourselves on building an extensible ecosystem of powerful partnerships that power hybrid work, foster inclusivity, and elevate collaboration effortlessly with deep integrations. We are doing our part to make teaching and hybrid learning collaborative and inclusive by delivering solutions like JIBB right inside Webex, so teachers can focus on what matters the most – their students.
We appreciate teachers this week and every week as they work hard to provide the best learning experiences for their students – in-person, remote, or hybrid.
Add JIBB to your virtual classroom.
