Conceptboard - A Collaborative Whiteboard Space

There are many ways for teams of students to collaborate online and here's another promising one. Conceptboard is a service that provides an online whiteboard space that you can use to share drawings, documents, spreadsheets, and more. You can create drawings and diagrams from scratch or upload an existing file that you have. You can invite as many people as you want to have an online conversation about whatever is shared on the whiteboard. Notes can be pinned to specific items on the whiteboard so that there is not any confusion about what each note is related to. Conceptboard is designed to work on your iPad without installing any separate apps.

Applications for Education
Conceptboard, like similar services such as Scribblar, could be a good tool for providing students with short online tutorials and explanations of concepts. Students could use Conceptboard for online peer tutoring or peer editing. For group work, Conceptboard could be used by students for brainstorming sessions.
