I really believe that Luidia cares about teachers, and I think they show it continually with their products for educators. eBeam Connect is a perfect example of this. eBeam Connect is Luidia’s new web-based software that allows teachers and students to interact between web-enabled devices. I guarantee this article explains eBeam Connect and it’s capabilities better than I can, so read on! Did I mention this software is available for free? Anyway, read on…

Luidia Previews eBeam Connect
New Beta Program, eBeamLabs.com, Gives Public Early Access to New Products
SAN CARLOS, CA–(Marketwire – Mar 19, 2012) – Luidia, Inc., creator of interactive eBeam® technology, today announced public beta availability of eBeam Connect, a new web-based software that allows teachers and students to interact from web-enabled devices, like iPads and other tablets. eBeam Connect and other upcoming products kick off the company’s new beta program, eBeamLabs.com. The program’s mission is to give teachers and students early access to new and unreleased products so that they can provide direct feedback to Luidia’s product development team.
eBeam Connect: Browser-to-Browser and Browser-to-Whiteboard Collaboration
Available to everyone, without the need for special hardware or software, eBeam Connect provides a browser-to-browser experience, where any number of teachers and students can start or join interactive sessions to create, capture, and share content in real time. On mobile devices like iPads and Android or Windows tablets, teachers and students can utilize touch technology or a stylus to share notes and diagrams, brainstorm, and more. For example, a teacher can assign a math problem set to students, who may be working on iPads or tablet computers individually or in teams. Through eBeam Connect, the teacher can use his or her own computer to view each student’s progress in real-time by clicking through each of the user pages. In a “flipped” classroom model, eBeam Connect facilitates in-class and after-class work group sessions, allowing students, teachers, parents, and tutors to collaborate in real time from different locations or individually review notes later.
To provide a browser-to-whiteboard experience, eBeam Connect can also integrate with Luidia’s hardware products (eBeam Edge or eBeam Engage), so teachers and students are not limited by traditional communications and can take advantage of new opportunities for mobile learning and collaboration. For example, instead of copying what the teacher is putting up on the physical interactive whiteboard, students can use eBeam Connect to see and manipulate the data directly on their mobile devices or desktop computers, as well as save their work. Additionally, remote students can tap into the classroom for long-distance learning and collaboration over the Cloud.
Users can access the eBeam Connect beta immediately at eBeamLabs.com.
