      Well developed and maintained. It has many of the most important features of SMART Notebook but it's a lot less buggy.

    4. The Sankoré software is an interactive white board software. Certainly one of the most exciting projects related to open education. It offers the opportunity to teach differently while using current teaching tools.

      Discontinued

      The project is no longer developed. Last version, 2.5.1, released in May 2013, can be still downloaded from the official website. OpenBoard is a fork of this project

      Most users think Open Sankoré is a great alternative to SMART Notebook.
    5. Conceptboard goes beyond the idea of online whiteboards and adds realtime collaboration, document sharing, visual feedback, task management, live meetings and more.


    6. Explain Everything is an easy-to-use design, screencasting, and interactive whiteboard tool that lets you annotate, animate, narrate, import, and export almost anything to and from almost anywhere.
