TutorsBox adds audio and video chat capability to its interactive education-focused whiteboard
For immediate release
April 25, 2014 — PARIS — TutorsBox recently added on-board audio and video chat to its web-based interactive whiteboard. This addition solidifies TutorsBox as the go-to resource for educators looking for a fully integrated whiteboard that is accessible across mobile and computer devices.
TutorsBox includes sensitive drawing, equation and text tools for use by teachers of science, math, and language arts, and it integrates Wolfram Alpha’s computational knowledge engine. The audio and video chat is now built into the interface.
“The addition of voice and video is amazing” said Michael Maxwell, program director for the Upward Bound Math and Science Program at Georgia State University, which has been using TutorsBox to provide tutoring since 2013. TutorsBox offers pricing for solopreneur tutors, multi-tutor businesses and institutional-level programs designed to improve long-term academic success.
Users do not need any special technology to use the audio and video capabilities on the site. Any recent web browser running on an Internet-connected computer or mobile device with a webcam can take advantage of the new functionality. Whiteboards are recorded automatically, and tutors or students can use screen recording software to also capture their live chats.
TutorsBox is the premier online whiteboard for tutors and institutional tutoring programs throughout the world. Designed with math and science tutors in mind, TutorsBox serves more than 3,000 secondary and post-secondary students with more than 300 hours of classes each month.
