Microsoft kicked off its week at the Bett technology conference in London with a new lineup of affordable classroom hardware and Microsoft Teams features, but it's not done yet. In a blog post today, the Redmond tech giant announced that its collaborative Whiteboard for EDU app is now available worldwide, alongside a quick recap of a number of updates to its learning tools that have rolled out over that past several months.
The base Whiteboard app app has seen a number of improvements since its launch last year, but Microsoft is making a big push for its utility in classrooms. Teachers and students can use the app to work collaboratively on brainstorming sessions and projects. But the EDU edition also includes some more classroom-focused features, including the ability to export boards directly to OneNote Class Notebooks, new background colors for boards, and handwriting recognition to make inking more legible.
Microsoft Whiteboard for EDU can be accessed by downloading the Whiteboard app for Windows 10 or iPad and signing in with your Office 365 for Education account.
