ViewSonic Corp., a leading provider of visual solutions, today announces that it becomes a Microsoft Education partner. As a result, ViewSonic’s myViewBoard whiteboard software will be further integrated with the Microsoft Education ecosystem to offer educators a seamless digital teaching experience, and myViewBoard for Windows 10 is currently available as a Desktop application. The Windows Store version is in development and will be available later this year. The integration will also see closer cooperation with Microsoft to promote and advance digital learning.
“We are delighted to be partnering with Microsoft Education to help realize the true potential of EdTech for educators and students alike,” said Craig Scott, CTO of ViewSonic and president of ViewSonic EME/ANZ. “myViewBoard for Windows creates an individualized whiteboard experience that is cloud storage integrated, highly secured and multifunctional.
