Xorro Workbook: Whiteboarding software


Workbook combines the easy, instant expressiveness of your whiteboard, with the reach and productivity of your computer.

Xorro Workbook is branded Alphateach for customers in the United Kingdom and some European countries.


Features & Benefits

Workbook enables you to turn your regular whiteboarding sessions into living documents. Just like your conventional whiteboard, you can use pens to write in ink… only now you’re writing in digital ink, and its being stored in your computer for review and to share with others. Workbook’s page extender and unlimited page sorter means you’ll never run out of whiteboard space. You can save, share, print, or email as PDF in an instant.

With Workbook, you’ll be placing and organising digital ink, text, shapes and images onto your whiteboard in no time at all. Adding links and sounds to anything on your document is simple. You’ll find all the usual interactive whiteboarding features: spotlight, magnifier, full screen views, screen capture, screen annotate, cropping, transparency eyedropper, format painter etc. Because Workbook is highly customisable, you’ll set up your favourite pens (they never run out of ink!) and your favourite tools. Incorporate video, audio & web feeds on your whiteboard pages; play and capture snapshots from these instantly. Build mindmaps, flowcharts and concept diagrams instantly while collaborating. Workbook includes Xorro-Q so you can even run automated quizzes and brainstorming sessions off the whiteboard. The free Resource Finder allows instant discovery and use of lesson-relevant images, videos and text. Join the free Xorro-ED Community to share and access IWB activities with others around the world. Import SMART Notebook, IWB, PDF and all media files for easy display & annotation. Workbook enables you to annotate anywhere on your computer and save or record your work.
