Title: Interactive Whiteboard Information Standard
ISB STATUS = UNDER REVIEW. A common standard for interactive white board content.
An Interactive Whiteboard Data Standard, if adopted as a common industry-wide standard, will bring benefits to schools, by allowing the free exchange of resources within and between schools, and through cost benefits passed on from opening up the IWB market to greater competition.
UK Education has adopted interactive whiteboards and whiteboard software from a variety of suppliers during the last 7 years. Content files developed for one type of interactive whiteboard cannot always be opened by the software of another. This means that it is not possible for users, Learning Authorities, or other content publishers to create content that can be used on the software of more than one type of interactive whiteboard.
